The SIIA has elected a new Council in its latest Annual General Meeting on 27 April to serve from 2009-11. We would like to thank the previous council members for their invaluable contributions to the institute. Going forward, it will be up to the new Council to set the directions for the SIIA for 2009-2011, they are namely:

- Assoc. Prof. Simon Tay, Schwartz Fellow, The Asia Society, USA (Council Chairman)
- Mr. Joseph Tan, Asian Chief Economist, Credit Suisse (Council Secretary)
- Mr. Collin Tseng-Liu, Head of Business Development, Allen & Gledhill LLP (Council Treasurer)
- Ms. Debra Soon, Managing Director, Channel News Asia (Council Member)
- Mr. Manu Bhaskaran, Partner/Head, Economic Research, Centennial Asia Advisors Pte Ltd  (Council Member)
- Mr. Ricky Sim, Managing Director, Chesterton Suntec International Pte Ltd (Council Member)
- Mr. Warren Fernandez, Regional Director (Asia Pacific), Communications Strategy at Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd (Council Member)
- Ms. Trina Liang-Lin, Executive Director, Global Financial Institutions Risk Advisory (Council Member), Royal Bank of Scotland
- Mr. Jimmy Tay, Chief Executive of Southeast Asia, Asia Pacific, Hill & Knowlton (Council Member)
- Dr. Reuben Wong, Assistant Head and Assistant Professor, Dept. of Political Science, National University of Singapore (Council Member)
- Dr. Dawn Dekle, Dean at the Center for Leadership, S.P. Jain Center of Management (Associate Council Member)

The roles of the new council reside in three main areas. The area of Programs, Research and Policy will be overseen by Mr. Joseph Tan, Mr. Manu Bhaskaran and Dr. Reuben Wong. Finance, Admin, Human Resource and Internal Audit, will be consequently overseen by Mr. Collin Tseng-Liu and Dr. Dawn Dekle. Lastly, in the area of Outreach and Development, Ms. Debra Soon, Mr. Warren Fernandez, Mr. Ricky Sim, Mr. Jimmy Tay and Ms. Trina Liang-Lin will be working together to bring SIIA to new heights be it locally or within the region.

Looking ahead, SIIA’s Chairman, Assoc. Prof. Simon Tay expresses that, "the year ahead will undoubtedly be an interesting one. For our work and programs, there will be much to discuss and analyze as the global and regional communities struggle to address the financial and economic crisis as well as other issues in governance, economy and other areas. For the SIIA as an institution, the downturn in the Singapore economy will make it even more challenging to secure the funding and resources for our work."

However, he is assured that with the incumbent council members’ steadfast help and support, SIIA will carry on its strong efforts toward research and public education, and will thus continue to “flourish as a unique and venerable civic institution”.
