IR Leader
February 01, 2022

CIRI members identify four top reasons they value their membership, one of which is staying abreast of regulatory changes through CIRI's issues advocacy and education initiatives.

Do you have a particular interest in the regulatory aspects of IR? Do you want to be involved in identifying key issues and educating peers on how these issues impact the IR role? if so, CIRI has an opportunity for you. 

CIRI is looking for IROs to participate on the Issues Committee. This Committee meets monthly, produces Backgrounders to educate IROs on hot issues and contributes to submissions to regulators. 

If this sounds like an opportunity you are interested in, please contact either Yvette Lokker or Eleanor Fritz to discuss. 

Be informed. Be connected. Be current. Be a member of the Issues Committee!
