Discover the 'Hidden Gems' of CIRI Membership

A CIRI membership offers significant value through the many Professional Development, Publications and Advocacy benefits. In addition, there are a number of 'hidden gems' included with the membership package. These 'hidden gems' include:

Mentorship Program

New IROs may find the profession daunting at first due to its complex and multidisciplinary nature. That is why CIRI's Ontario, Québec, Alberta and British Columbia chapters offer a Mentorship Program to their members.

These programs pair leading IR professionals (mentors) with those fairly new to IR (protégés) for strategic one-on-one meetings to help the protégé achieve specific career development goals. While working towards the protégé's goals, the mentorship team shares ideas, perspectives and experiences. Each team meets several times over six months.

The Ontario, Québec, Alberta and British Columbia programs offer mentors a rewarding leadership experience, while providing all participants the benefits of connecting with another colleague in the profession.

Volunteer Advisory Network

CIRI's Volunteer Advisory Network is a vehicle where CIRI members help other CIRI members. This resource lists CIRI members with public companies who are willing to volunteer their time and expertise to help other CIRI members on a vast range of investor relations topics.
