Maintaining your GPC.D
As a holder of the GPC.D you are required to complete a minimum of 15 ‘Governance Education Credits’ (GECs) annually and to maintain your membership in the GPC in good standing, in order to retain the designation.
The 15 GECs represent a yearly requirement, and will be counted from your effective designation/requalification date.Governance Education Credits can be achieved as follows:
Events from other organizations that offer education related to governance are eligible for GECs, however a certificate of attendance and program description will need to be submitted.
GEC tracking will need to be performed manually for time being, and we provide you with the GPC Course Log spreadsheet to facilitate the process, while we review the best online system solutions to streamline this process in the near future.
