The CSIA Toolkit Launch was held in Hong Kong on the 16th of April 2014.

Responding to strong demand in emerging markets and developing countries for training for corporate secretaries, CSIA partnered with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to develop training materials for corporate secretaries, based on the Corporate Governance Board Leadership Training Resources. This publication has been called The Corporate Secretary’s Toolkit (CS Toolkit).
