DSC 0133The IACA Board of Governors held its first meeting of the year on Wednesday to discuss the upcoming independent external audit of the organization as well as preparations for the seventh session of the Assembly of Parties later in 2018, among other matters.

All external auditors, operating as a collegial body, act in their personal capacity and enjoy functional and organizational independence in conducting the audit.

In their deliberations on Wednesday, Board members also considered current institutional and academic developments at IACA.

The meeting was chaired by Prof. Dr. Pakdee Pothisiri, the Vice Chairperson of the Board. Members serve in their individual capacity and come from all regions of the globe, as well as from the United Nations.
