Welcome IPRS Council 2015/2017!

The 45th IPRS Annual General Meeting (AGM) and election of the IPRS Council 2015/2017 took place at YMCA@One Orchard on 18 March 2015.

In his farewell speech, outgoing IPRS President, Mr Stephen Forshaw, highlighted the efforts by the IPRS Council 2013/2015 to strengthen the Institute’s organisational capability so as to position it to serve Members and the profession better in the years ahead.  He thanked the outgoing Council for its unanimous support in making difficult, but right, decisions in 2014 and the Members present at the AGM for their endorsement. 

Following the close of the AGM proceedings, the Returning Officer, Accredited Member, Ms Kathy O’Brien, declared the following elected to the IPRS Council 2015/2017:

  • Robert Conceicao, President
  • Christina Cheang, Vice President
  • Lin Liangmin, Honorary Secretary
  • Wong Siew Pheng Joanna, Honorary Treasurer
  • Gerald De Cotta, Council Member
  • Jovina Ang, Council Member
  • Chan Chi Ming Eric, Council Member
  • Mike Liew, Council Member
  • Lily Lim, Council Member
  • Lee Chye Leong Edgar, Council Member

In his speech, the newly elected President, Mr Robert Conceicao, thanked Stephen and the outgoing Council and the Members present for their support. He pledged to continue the conversation with Members that was started by the previous Council on the direction that the Institute wished to take in the years ahead. This conversation was timely, he added, as IPRS was a matured 45-year old Institute this year. He appealed to Members to step forward and join the incoming Council and the Secretariat to make the Institute more relevant and vibrant.
