Association of Independent
Non-Executive Directors

Welcome to the Association of Independent Non-Executive Directors.
We are the professional body that exists to provide for the needs of Independent Non-Executive Directors (INEDs) in the UK. Initially founded in 2017 for the Financial Services sector we now operate across all sectors.

The Association was founded and is run by experienced, high level INEDs who wish to improve standards and offer support for people in similar roles.

We are a non-profit making organisation. The membership fees we charge are used solely to provide for the running costs of the Association and any profits are ploughed back into membership services.

Membership of the AiNED is open both to INEDs with existing or recent Non-Executive level roles as well as to experienced Executive Directors looking to broaden their skills and knowledge to gain their first INED roles.

Our training offering was designed exclusively for INEDs, by INEDs and was constructed by the Business School of a major UK University.
