South East Asia Regional Board

Member announcement

Changes agreed by CIMA’s council aim to bring the Institute closer to local market conditions and provide the regional autonomy and empowerment essential to meet the council’s objectives.

The council approved the formation of the South East Asia Regional Board (SEARB) in March 2011. The new structure became effective from 1 July 2011 and is made up of elected representatives from the following countries:

  • Malaysia
  • Singapore
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

CIMA wishes to ensure that it engages with and takes advantage of local conditions. These are best understood by CIMA members and staff locally. They are empowered to propose their own governance rules to meet the CIMA council’s objectives. The SEARB is empowered by the council and is dedicated to overseeing CIMA’s agreed strategy in the South East Asian market.

Following recent elections, we are pleased to announce the new line-up of board members for the South East Asia Regional Board (SEARB) who will serve the term of 2014-2017.
