The IIA’s Global Board of Directors proposes key changes to our current global governance structure. As a member of The IIA’s global association, you have the opportunity to provide your opinion on the proposed changes.

While IIA membership has grown by more than 250 percent in the past 15 years, the existing governance structure does not ensure a consistently effective and relevant approach to quickly changing global developments. With this in consideration, the Board believes it is time to modify our governance structure to provide nimble and vigilant oversight of IIA activities and maximum value to the membership.

Key recommendations include:  

  • Establishment of a 17-member Board of Directors (reduced from the current 38 members) with expanded responsibilities.
  • Elimination of the Executive Committee.
  • Establishment of a 6-member Supervisory Committee with limited responsibilities.
  • A Global Assembly (currently Global Council) with expanded responsibilities. 

Member input will be considered by the Board, with a set of final recommendations submitted to the global membership for approval during The IIA’s Annual Business Meeting in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in May 2018. If approved, the changes will go into effect in July 2019.

Please click the survey link below to read the proposed changes and to submit your opinion by 13 October 2017.
