NIRI Designates Rivel as an Approved Professional Development Unit Provider

ALEXANDRIA, VA, May 3, 2022 – NIRI: The Association for Investor Relations and Rivel announced a new collaboration agreement that will bring the programming and education initiatives of both organizations closer together.

NIRI has designated Rivel as an Approved Professional Development Unit (PDU) Provider.
Through this program, NIRI Investor Relations Charter (IRC)® holders are now able to earn PDUs at Rivel’s educational events, including forums, seminars, and webinars. PDUs are sought by IRC holders for certification renewal purposes. 

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 PDUs for certification renewal purposes.

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

"We are pleased to recognize Rivel, Inc. as an Approved PDU Provider for the Investor Relations Charter,” said Matthew Brusch, CAE, NIRI Interim President and CEO. "We believe IRC holders will benefit from the IR-focused educational programs provided by Rivel."

Brian Rivel, Chairman and CEO of Rivel states, “We are delighted that NIRI has recognized Rivel as an Approved Professional Development Unit (PDU) Provider. As the investor relations profession has evolved and become ever more challenging over the years, Rivel has also grown and evolved, not only delivering advice and guidance through perception studies, but also providing in-depth insights into emerging investor issues and evolving IR best practices, including ESG education. As a PDU provider, we look forward to bringing timely insights and additional educational opportunities to the IR community.”
