The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Singapore (ICPAS) has released a consultation paper to seek feedback on proposed amendments to the Constitution following a review of its Constitution.
As you may be aware, the review arose from the CDAS' Recommendation 8 contained in its Final Report, pertaining to the transformation of ICPAS into a professional accountancy body with a global membership, outlook and standing. Under Recommendation 8, ICPAS is tasked to undertake a comprehensive independent study of the ICPAS Constitution to ensure its relevance and alignment of ICPAS' mission as the national professional body and that the ensuing governance and leadership structure and system are consistent with that of a professional accountancy body with a global membership, outlook and standing.

(b) Mode of Election of Council Members
(c) Tenure of President, Vice-President and Treasurer
(d) Tenure of Council Members
(e) Members of the Institute
(f) Audit Committee
(g) Nominations Committee
