Dear Professional Colleagues,
It is indeed a great honour to be the Chairman of Singapore Chapter, thanks to all the managing committee members for giving me this wonderful opportunity. As one of the founder member of this great Chapter, I am very happy to see the growth from its infancy stage. With the support of all our members, I am confident that we can reach even greater heights together.
With ISCA introducing “Singapore CA Qualification”, we think that this is the right time to restart the Mutual Recognition Agreement with ISCA. Our Committee Members met ICAI President CA Nilesh Vikamsey and he has requested ICAI’s International Affairs Committee (IAC) to take this up on priority. Our Chapter will provide necessary support by providing local follow up to IAC in their negotiations with ISCA.
We will continue to focus on increasing our membership numbers, with more members attending our events, we would be able to gain visibility and attract sponsors for our events. Our Members in Singapore are working in diverse industries, we will try our best to organise events that will help our members in enhancing their technical and professional skills.
We request your support by participating in all the events organised by our Chapter. Kindly suggest the topics of interest that you would like us to facilitate and we will try our best to arrange those events.
We have a WhatsApp group , which is very active and you can use this to share information and keep yourself updated about the Chapter’s activities. We also have an active LinkedIn and Facebook Groups, if you are not already a member of these Groups, I kindly request you to join them and socialise with our members.
All Past Chairmen of the Chapter have contributed immensely and helped it to attain the stature we are in today, I would like to thank them all for their contribution and continued support to the Chapter.
Finally I take this opportunity to make an appeal to all our members to encourage all ICAI members based in Singapore to become members of our Chapter.
Chairman, ICAI Singapore Chapter
