NIRI Designates Stockperks as an Approved Professional Development Unit Provider

ALEXANDRIA, VA, December 12, 2022 – NIRI: The Association for Investor Relations and Stockperks announced a new collaboration agreement that will bring the programming and education initiatives of both organizations closer together.

Through this program, NIRI Investor Relations Charter (IRC)® holders are now able to earn PDUs at select Stockperks’ 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, promotes awareness of the IR profession, and improves the standard of IR excellence.

"We welcome Stockperks as an Approved PDU Provider. Through this program, IRC holders are able to earn Professional Development Units through a growing list of partners, such as Stockperks, offering IR education programs,” said Matthew Brusch, CAE, NIRI President and CEO.

"We are thrilled to partner with NIRI and become an Approved PDU provider," said Agnies Watson, President of Stockperks.
