NIRI Designates Broadridge as an Approved
Professional Development Unit Provider


ALEXANDRIA, VA, May 15, 2023 NIRI: The Association for Investor Relations and BROADRIDGE announced a new collaboration agreement that will bring the programming and education initiatives of both organizations closer together.

NIRI has designated Broadridge as an Approved Professional Development Unit (PDU) Provider.

Through this program, NIRI Investor Relations Charter (IRC)® holders are now able to earn PDUs at select Broadridge educational events.

The purpose of the Approved PDU Provider Program is to help IRC holders maintain their certification and give entities that offer education, training and/or other IR-related knowledge programming the opportunity to be recognized to award the PDUs sought by IRC holders for certification renewal purposes.

This collaboration promotes the continued competence of IRC holders by making it easier for them to access educational resources, as well as promoting awareness of the IR profession, and improving the standard of IR excellence.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Broadridge as an Approved PDU Provider,” said Matthew Brusch, CAE, NIRI President and CEO. “IRC holders in need of professional development to maintain their credentials will benefit from the expanded universe of organizations offering IR education.”

“As a global fintech leader, Broadridge provides the critical infrastructure that powers corporate governance and voting for more than 9,000 corporate issuers, 30,000 mutual funds and ETFs, over 170 million individual investors,” said Dorothy Flynn, Broadridge’s President of Corporate Issuer Solutions. “As an Approved Professional Development Unit (PDU) provider, we are thrilled to share our deep domain expertise with our fellow NIRI members across the full spectrum of corporate governance including proxy voting, shareholder engagement, ESG and regulatory and compliance trends.”
