In April, AICDP launched its’ Netherlands ICRO Group when our existing practitioner members met together with prospective members in Amsterdam.

The group is to be led by Anthony Stuart who will orchestrate the development of the group, appointment of office bearers, and the planning of future meetings, events, and initiatives. Anthony will be supported in this endeavor by senior members of our Executive Committee.

The purpose of the day was to give members and prospective members an overview of AICDP, its’ history, where we are today and a sample of the comprehensive services that we and our partners can offer our members and the Profession. Thereafter, the practitioner members and prospective members were to be asked to endorse the formation of the group and commit to joining.

The Agenda included-

  • A history of AICDP
  • Where AICDP is Today
  • Fintech, Biometrics, and the Impact on the Future of Credit
  • Driving the Future for International Credit Risk and Operations – Panel Discussion

At the conclusion of the agenda items and general discussion, there was obviously no need to poll the room to endorse the group as evidenced by the levels of enthusiasm and engagement. There was unanimous agreement on joining the group.  The group, therefore, consists of new and existing members all representing major multinationals.

This group, together with several others who have expressed an interest in joining but could not make it on the day, form a significant nucleus to develop from and represents a mirror image of our experience in successfully forming our Ireland and UK Groups.  We are confident that we will encounter repeated success with this formula in forming our Oslo group over the next month.
