Who are we?

Welcome to the Sri Lanka Institute of Directors.

SLID was officially launched on 8th April 2000 under the aegis of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce. We were set up as the primer forum to serve the corporate needs of the current and future directors both in the private and public sector organizations and still continue to be the authoritative focal point on boardroom governance in Sri Lanka.

We have a diverse membership of 500 members including the blue chips, private and public quoted companies, family businesses and entrepreneurial ventures amongst many others.

SLID is an organization that holds a unique position in the drive towards professionalism in the board room and is well positioned to facilitate this initiative. The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes conducted by SLID help directors and other senior managers (potential directors) build on their abilities to meet the many complex obligations as stewards of public and private companies and also to strengthen corporate governance practices as applicable to Boards of Directors.

Our mission and vision continues to be in the forefront of everything that we do.
