Greeting to all our members and their family….!!!
I hope all of you are safe and are eagerly looking forward to the society/economy opening up fully soon.
At IIA India, we had a very eventful month in August which culminated in an excellent event organised by our women’s forum with the address by the chairman of IIA Global Board, Ms. Jenitha John on “Re-Imagining Resilience”. Recommend all of you to go through this presentation & the video available on our website for a wonderful treatise on how internal audit profession can reshape itself to the post COVID world.
You can also find a summary of our membership survey conducted recently in this issue. More than 15% of our members offered their valuable insights/suggestions to enhance our value delivery. The detailed survey report is available on our website for your reference. We look forward to your continued feedback/suggestions.
With the conclusion of all the chapter AGMs, we now have the BOGs across all the chapters fully engaged in carrying the momentum forward. We had six webinars during the month, including a specially organised training program for our Lucknow club members. Wish to engage with all the audit clubs and also have more clubs inaugurated to reach out to the internal audit professionals in tier 2 / 3 cities.
The chairs of all the national committees had their inaugural meeting during the month and have flushed out their terms of reference, agreed on key actions and measurable KPIs for the year. You will soon hear from them exciting initiatives to serve our members and to take the profession to newer heights.
We are also excited to announce the first national virtual conference on the theme – “Internal Auditing in a Virtual World” on October 9 & 10, 2020. This conference will be addressed by Mr. Richard Chambers, President & CEO, IIA Inc., Ms Jenitha John, Chairman, IIA Global Board and a galaxy of leaders from the corporate, internal audit & the economic world. You can see the details of the conference in the magazine. The conference will be free, and we hope to have large pan Asia registrations.
I look forward to your participation in the conference. Best wishes for a safe & healthy season ahead
