IIA Singapore's 41st Annual General Meeting was held on 29 August 2017 with close to 80 members who joined us at the meeting. The year 2016/2017 President's Report as well as the Business Plan and Activities for the coming year were shared.
The 16-member Board of Governors has been elected for the new term of two years from FY2017/2018 to FY2018/2019, subject to the provisions in the By-Laws. Their positions are as listed here.
The Internal Audit (IA) profession is undergoing a transformation. In today's risk landscape, IA has to step up its value proposition and demonstrate that IA is indispensable to help organizations improve governance, risk management and internal controls. IIA Singapore is resolved in our efforts to support our members to up-skill and re-skill themselves to stay relevant and elevate their status in the profession. IA professionals need to acquire and build strong digital and technological capabilities. The transformation of the profession and IA being identified as a high growth practice area in Singapore mean good opportunities for our members and the IA profession in Singapore as a whole. President, Ms. Tan Boon Yen, shared key initiatives for FY2017/2018, taking into consideration the opportunities and risks in the current environment.
We also acknowledged long standing members as well as newly certification holders who were present at the meeting.
