About AICI Singapore Chapter
The AICI Singapore Chapter is a vibrant group of dynamic and professional image consultants with a vision to promote image consulting in Asia. Its vision is to generate interest and create awareness about image consultants and the value they bring to people’s lives every day. Its goal is to increase the visibility of what they do and what they offer as a chapter through their active members, chapter events and philanthropic activities.
It is committed to supporting image consultants in the Singapore Chapter, and welcome members from across the geographic boundaries of Asia and beyond. Its vision is to be a catalyst for growth through outstanding member benefits.
The Singapore chapter is proactive in strengthening bonds within the AICI network, not only in Singapore but also wherever our members are based, both regionally and globally. It strives to collaborate with other chapters in the region to maximise educational, business and networking opportunities for its members.
AICI is the leading worldwide certifying organisation for image consultants. It encourages progressive levels of certification, as well as professional development through educational workshops, offering internationally-recognised Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
History of AICI Singapore
On 23 June 2007, a pioneer group of 15 AICI members signed a petition to form a chapter in Singapore. After approval was granted by the AICI International Board, the pro-tem committee applied for the AICI South-Asia Singapore (SINGAPORE) Chapter, now known as AICI Singapore Chapter, to be approved as a society in Singapore.
The AICI Singapore chapter was officially registered as a society on 9 October 2007, which makes this its official Anniversary date.
AICI Singapore had held the first AICI Education Conference in 2009, with 120 delegates from China, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam, and speakers from America and Canada.
