European Confederation of Directors’ Associations (ecoDa)
ecoDa represents more than 55,000 board members from diverse organisations and 21 European countries.
As ‘the European Voice of Directors’ ecoDa is an important platform for board members to exchange ideas about current challenges and topics. For example, what is the impact of good governance on the organisation, society and the planet? EcoDa listens to the needs of European board members and combines these into one voice in European dates via publications such as position papers and (informal) contacts with the European Commission. In addition, ecoDa developed and published the first European recommendations for non-listed companies in march of 2010.
In terms of professional development, ecoDa organises a yearly 2-day European training for board members. More info about ecoDa.
