Professional Development

Annual Conference
The NIRI Annual Conference is an annual event, typically held in June, for the IR community for practitioners, counselors, and providers.

Led by a faculty of well-respected investor relations officers and financial, legal, and practice experts, NIRI programs enhance your understanding of trends, issues, and tactics for the successful execution of investor relations. Seminars are designed to meet the needs of all involved in investor relations—from the newcomer to the most established professional. Attend one of the Fundamentals of Investor Relations seminars, typically held in January on the West Coast and September on the East Coast or one of the other subject-specific seminars held annually.

Gather your staff and others in one room to participate in NIRI webinars. This is an excellent opportunity to learn without leaving your office or while on the road. Most programs are an hour long and archived for your convenience. Review archived and upcoming webinars here.

Self-Paced Courses
Self-paced online resources are available for purchase for use during a certain time frame. A variety of coursework formats fit any busy IRO schedule.

The IRC Credential

Certifying investor relations competencies across key disciplines including finance, strategy, and communications

Developed through the collaboration of its practitioners and constituents, NIRI’s Investor Relations Charter (IRC) credential assures those in the corporate, agency, and investment communities that the charterholder has demonstrated the necessary knowledge and skills for competence across the IR discipline.

One of NIRI’s four primary mission areas is advocacy regarding regulatory initiatives impacting the investor relations profession. This important function aggregates the opinion of NIRI’s many members, representing trillions of dollars in combined public company market capitalization, bringing the IRO’s voice to the regulatory table in Washington, D.C. This key member benefit is particularly critical in today’s rapidly changing regulatory atmosphere.

Learn More About NIRI’s Advocacy Initiatives

The Orange County chapter wants to add the voices of its members to NIRI’s overall advocacy initiatives, in particular:

  • the potential regulation of proxy advisory services
  • increasing the required breadth and transparency of institutional share ownership beyond the current requirement to declare long positions 45 days after quarter end

If you have further questions about how you and your company can add your voice to NIRI’s advocacy efforts, how you can contact your member of Congress directly about these issues, or if you would like to discuss these matters further, contact us and a Board member familiar with the issues will be happy to help.


Includes the monthly Investor Relations Update; Standards of Practice for Investor Relations; timely Executive Alerts; and NIRI Analytics which include NIRI’s highly valued research studies including comprehensive reports complete with charts, tables, summaries, qualitative data and survey methodology.

How to Get Ahead in ESG

Investors, money managers and companies are asking more questions and demanding more answers about environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in the investment process. Investors are increasingly evaluating companies based on ESG information and companies need people with the expertise to respond to such inquiries. Meanwhile, asset managers are increasingly being asked by their clients to incorporate ESG, so they need employees with the skill set to determine what is and isn’t important to that firm’s bottom line..
