Dear Professional Colleagues
Please accept my Greetings on behalf of IIA India
Since my last communication in the month of October, 2017 the following important events/ developments have taken place.
ACIIA CAE Leadership Forum
On the 9th of November, 2017 we organised the Asian Confederation of Institute of Internal Auditors (ACIIA) Leadership Forum at New Delhi on the theme ‘Navigating through Disruptive Business Innovation’. The Conference was attended by delegates from all over Asia. The Vice Chairman of IIA Global Mr. Naohiro Mouri as well as the then Vice President of ICAI Mr. Navin N.D. Gupta were among the list of speakers who addressed the Conference. The event was well attended.
The Bombay Chapter organised its Regional Conference at Taj Santa Cruz, Mumbai in the month of December. The discussion at the Conference was thought provoking and interesting. The then President of ICAI Mr. Nilesh Vikamsey addressed the Inaugural Session. The quality of the speakers was very high and the organisation was excellent.
Madras, Delhi & Bangalore Chapters are planning to organise Regional Conferences in the month of March. I urge the Chapter Members to attend these programmes.
The National Conference was organised in Kolkata on 12th & 13th January, 2018. Mr. J. Michael Pepper, the Chairman, IIA Global was the Chief Guest & Mr. Denny Beran, Former Chairman of IIA Global was the Guest of Honour. Severine from IIA Global was also present. A galaxy of speakers addressed the two day event. The knowledge disseminated was relevant and extremely useful.
IIA (India) continues to be in touch with the office of CGA to train its officials on Internal Audit. National Institute of Rural Development (NIRD) has also shown keen interest in joining hands with us for training purposes. A Memorandum of Understanding with NIRD is on the Anvil.
A Strategic Plan for IIA (India) is being developed so as to ensure that the activities of the Institute are carried out in a professional & structured manner.
All efforts are being made to attract more & more Professionals to join the Institute & be a part of the Internal Audit Fraternity.
Wishing all of you great professional success.
With Kind Regards,
President, IIA India
