Definition of “Special Interest Groups” page

 BAA defines “Special Interest Groups” as ‘groups of members of the Association which have been recognised by the Executive Committee as actively pursuing the objectives of the Association within a defined subset of the areas of interest of the Association.  A Special Interest Group, in order to be recognised, should normally have a membership at least 5% of that of the Association as a whole.’

Establishment of ASIG

On the basis of a questionnaire sent out by the Organising Committee of the National Auditing Conference in 1995/96 the requirements of BAA, as set out above, were met and the Executive Committee of BAA gave formal approval to the establishment of ASIG at the Annual General Meeting of BAA held in Cardiff on 28 March 1996.
