An exciting AGM this year as our Vice-Chair Lynda van Dreumel, presented The Chartered Director (C. Dir.) designation to David Smelsky, CPA, CMA, C.Dir, Director, Chair and President, Hospice Wellington

The Chartered Director (C. Dir.) designation is awarded upon completion of intensive coursework, practical experience, and a comprehensive examination to ensure that participants gain expertise in both the “technical and structural” (rules-based) side of governance and the “cultural” (principle-based and behavioural) side. Having professionals with the C. Dir. designation on the Hospice Wellington Board of Directors elevates our organization's professional standards and highlights the dynamic relationship between corporate governance and corporate social responsibility
