The Chartered Governance Institute Jersey Council has chosen to focus on graduates, students and local members in recognition of the "unprecedented difficulties" its students endured in recent months.
The one-off 'Graduation and Prize Giving Ceremony' will replace the Annual Awards, which will return next year.
The event, which will take place in September, will celebrate the achievements of the graduates who qualified in 2019, 2020 and 2021, as well as the students who completed their IFA4 and IFA5 qualifications, and members who upgraded to Associate (ACG) and Fellow status (FCG) during this period.
The winner of the Student Excellence Award, based on examination performance, will also be announced.
“We are very happy with the focus for this year’s event," Anna Tredant, Chair of the Jersey Branch of the Chartered Governance Institute, said.
"Although not our usual annual event, we feel it is entirely appropriate to focus instead on the students, graduates and members and to celebrate their hard work and achievements in the presence of their employers, family and friends, especially given the recent challenging times."
