Dear Professional Colleagues
Greetings from IIA (India)
Since the time I wrote last in February,2018 some of the significant happenings are enumerated below:
The Annual Conference organised by the Madras Chapter in the month of March was very well attended. The discussions were thought provoking & the subjects selected were topical. The Bangalore Chapter also organised a very successful conference thereafter. The Delhi chapter is proposing to host a Conference shortly. The Calcutta Chapter is hosting an Audit Conclave in the month of June. Regular Seminars/Workshops are being organised by the various chapters. Dissemination of knowledge continues to be one of the pillars of the Institute.
A Memorandum of Understanding has already been entered into with the National institute of Rural Development for training purposes. We are hopeful that this will provide immense training opportunities to our members. The Government of Bhutan has approached us for training its officials. The Institute continues to be in touch with CGA to train its officials.
The Growth in Membership continues to be a thrust area. CGA has evinced keen interest in attaining Membership of the Institute for its officials. Every effort is being made to reach out to Internal Audit Professionals to become Members of this august body. I would like to take this opportunity to request all of you to help the Institute in enhancing the membership.
A formal strategic plan is proposed to be presented in the forthcoming Council Meeting to be held in July. It has been the endeavour of the Council to take all necessary steps to professionalise its operations.
The Institute continues to operate in close association with its parent body-IIA Global. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the constant support & guidance provided by our parent body.
I look forward to your suggestions to further improve the functioning of the Institute.
Wishing all of you great professional success.
With kind Regards,
President, IIA India
