President Communique

Dear IIA India Members,

Season's Greetings to all of you!

Most of you are very busy in this peek season for professionals; Statutory audit coordination, Internal Audit finalisations, Audit Committee meetings, Tax filings, and last but not the least the GST which is a very critical and complex legislation and a game changer to all the stakeholders!!

In IIA India and the Chapters, we were very active in celebrating the very popular “International Internal Audit Awareness Month” in the month of May. Our Bombay, Chennai, Calcutta, Bangalore Chapters have organised very useful programs in May and celebrated the Awareness Month.

Online Members' Portal has been started with effect from 1st April and majority of the members have made use of it and some new members have also joined electronically thru the Portal. The portal has made the job very easy for our members. Thanks to the Membership Development & Services Committee which has made it possible on a timely manner.

Our Website has also been updated and has a great look now. We are receiving more number of enquiries from people who visit our site for joining as members and it is serving the intended purpose of advocacy and promotion.

Our Calcutta Chapter has planned a Joint Audit Conclave in July last week, jointly with Eastern India Regional Councils of ICAI, ICAI (Cost) and ICSI. More details and the Program brochure will be sent in due course. I urge our members and their professional friends to attend this Conclave and get benefited.

As I have informed earlier that on the request of IIA India, the Asian Confederation of IIAs (ACIIA) have planned their Asian Government Internal Audium (Conference) in New Delhi in the month of November 2017. The relevant Brochure will be sent to you in due course carrying more details. I suggest that we should make this a grand event in India by your large participation in this very important and useful international knowledge sharing program.

We find that as on date, many of the members of IIA India are yet to renew their membership for 2017-18 and I suggest that they can renew online in an easy manner. The last date for renewal was 30th June and we will announce a further time line for renewal to enable those who missed the bus. Be part of this international association which is the only global body for the promotion and development of IA profession.

Wishing you all the best!!

Best regards,
K Vidyadharan
President
