Canadian Society of Corporate Secretaries rebrands
The Toronto-based Canadian Society of Corporate Secretaries has rebranded itself as Governance Professionals of Canada. According to the organization, the name change is intended to be more inclusive and to better represent the range of work performed by its members. The rebranding also includes a new logo and website at <http://www.gpcanada.org>. The organization advocates for and works to raise awareness of professionals who work in the field of corporate governance.
"Our membership has grown, our activities have expanded and our influence as the leading Canadian voice of governance is now firmly established," said organization president Lynn Beauregard. "The proposed change in our name to Governance Professionals of Canada reflects that growth and acknowledges governance as the defining principle that encompasses all that we do and all that our members do. While our name may change, the corporate secretary remains the keystone member of this organization."
