New Member of the TIF Audit Committee
TIF’s Audit Committee is perhaps less well known that its other committees, though it has its own web page, https://www.isprs.org/foundation/committees/audit_committee.aspx. Its terms of reference are quite extensive, but its most important role by far is the annual review of the TIF accounts prepared by TIF Finance Officer Marguerite Madden. TIF is delighted that a new member has joined the Audit Committee, Prof. Dr. Qihao Weng, professor of geography, Indiana State University, USA. Qihao will join Laurent Polidori (France) and John Trinder (Australia) in supporting the Audit Committee chair, Shailesh Nayak (India). Welcome, Qihao.
