ASIS International (Singapore Chapter) Q1 Educational Field Visit to Parliament House

ASIS International (Singapore Chapter) will be organizing the first educational field visit in 2018 to Singapore Parliament House on 6 April 2018 (Friday). 

The Parliament of the Republic of Singapore and the President jointly make up the legislature of Singapore, which is based on the Westminster system. Parliament is unicameral and is made up of Members of Parliament (MPs) who are elected, as well as Non-constituency Members of Parliament (NCMPs) and Nominated Members of Parliament (NMPs) who are appointed.

 

The main functions of Parliament are lawmaking, controlling the nation's finances, and ensuring ministerial accountability. Parliament convenes when it is in session. The first session of a particular Parliament commences when Parliament meets after being formed following a general election. A session ends when Parliament is prorogued (temporarily suspended) or dissolved. The maximum term of each Parliament is five years, after which Parliament automatically dissolves. A general election must then be held within three months.

The current Singapore Parliament House was officially opened in October 1999.  It occupies 2.2 hectares of land with a built up area of 19,765 square metres, comprising three new blocks and a restored building. Despite its new fa├žade with sturdy columns, the challenges of mitigating security threats and risks remain a challenge.

Venue: 1 Parliament Place, Singapore 178880.

Chapter Officers' Training

At the start of the term of every new Management Committee, a Chapter Officers' Training is conducted to induct the Chapter Officers on their roles and responsibilities. The existing MC serves a 2-year term from 2017 to 2018, and we held a Chapter Officers' Training in early 2017. We did another Chapter Officers' Training today to refresh ourselves on our "mission". Thanks to our Regional Vice President (ASEAN) Leonard Sng for facilitating the training.

It was a very fruitful evening as the training was followed by an-hour of discussion on the priorities for 2018 and a review of the recent survey we conducted. The MC is working hard to create more value for our members. Please visit our website regularly for more updates.
