46th Annual General Meeting
IIA Singapore held its 46th Annual General Meeting on 15 September 2022 at M Hotel. As in previous years, the AGM provided a platform for the board and management to meet with members and hear their views. Members were given a snapshot of the Institute’s key achievements during the past year, as well as upcoming initiatives designed to add value to the IIA Singapore membership.
In his speech, Koh Chin Beng, President of IIA Singapore, said: “The current climate also creates opportunities for internal auditors to step up and demonstrate their value to boards, in helping them successfully navigate the risks and uncertainties that lie ahead. This is where the role of internal audit becomes extremely important. Internal audit can use its professional skills, ethical standpoints, analytical prowess and organisational influence to make small contributions setting the foundations for implementing sustainability. We are placing a strong emphasis on providing upskilling opportunities for members by developing sustainability training…By undertaking this course, you will learn how to provide effective professional internal audit assurance including how to assess ESG risk and apply appropriate mitigation.”
The AGM also saw the re-election of eight our current members to the Board of Governors. The eight re-elected members are Vincent Cheang, Goh Chin Yee, Debbie Goh, Koh Chin Beng, Koh Wei Chern, Norman Kuik, Nicodemus Tan and Tan Suan Ee. As an ex-officio member of the board, Tan Boon Yen takes on the role of Immediate Past President. The 16-member board for FY2022/2023 comprises:
