ICSA AGM — 19 September 2018
The following is from the President's Report to Members by the new ICSA International President — Ms Edith Shih FCIS FCS(PE).
I am honoured to have been chosen as your new International President for the next two years. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and share with you the impetus I have set for the Institute for these two years. I would also like to introduce to you the Institute’s new thought leadership initiatives and bring you up to date on progress with the upcoming Annual General Meeting.
But first I would like to acknowledge the achievements of my predecessor David Venus. David successfully led the Institute through the most significant strategic changes of recent years, notably the introduction of Chartered Governance Professional and Affiliated Member. During David’s term, the Institute also started its Thought Leadership Committee (“TLC”), completely reviewed its international qualifying programme and restructured the way our nine divisions maintain the high quality the Institute is known for. On behalf of our Institute, I thank David on all that was achieved under his leadership.
Annual General Meeting
The AGM will be held in Toronto, Canada on 19 September 2018 and seeks member approval, to change the name of the Institute to The Chartered Governance Institute among other things.
