The recently concluded 64th AGIA Annual Convention, with the theme “AGIA: Anchor of Governance with Integrity and Accountabilities for Quality Public Service,” held on October 17-20, 2023 at Boracay New Coast Convention, Malay, Aklan, was a resounding success! The Convention highlighted insightful discussions on risk management, integrity, accountabilities and good governance programs and initiatives of the government from the expert resource speakers both coming from public and private institutions.
Commissioner Aileen Lourdes A. Lizada of the Civil Service Commission emphasized the role of internal auditors and allied professionals in the government in espousing the foundational principle of “Public Service is a Public Trust”.
