DSC 0371At its second meeting of the year on 28 – 29 June, the IACA Board of Governors approved the Independent External Auditors’ report for the budget year 2017 and discussed preparations for the upcoming seventh session of the Assembly of Parties (AoP), which will convene in Vienna at the end of September.

The external auditors, who were appointed by the Board from senior members of national supreme audit institutions or other suitable institutions of volunteering Parties, conducted the audit earlier this year.

Their report will be submitted to the seventh session of the AoP later this year for final acknowledgement.

Among other items on the agenda were new membership of IACA’s two Advisory Boards and a review of current developments at the organization, including host-country relations and visits.

The meeting was chaired by Mr. Eduardo Vetere, the 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.
