SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – The term for three members and one deputy member of the board of the General Audit Chamber ends on August 23rd, 2019. Chairman of the Board, Ronald C. Halman, members Mark Kortenoever and Alphons Gumbs, and deputy member Daniel Hassell have served on the board of the institution since its establishment in 2010.
Much has been accomplished in that span of time. Prior to October 10, 2010, St. Maarten did not have a supreme audit institution. In less than a decade, the General Audit Chamber is a well-respected advisory organization that has produced over 30 reports.
“It has been my honor to serve. I consider my tenure to have been both meaningful and successful. Quite a lot has been accomplished, and I wish the incoming board members all the best for the future,” Halman said in a statement on Friday.
The process for appointment of a new chairman and board-members is underway. “I expect the process of appointment to proceed efficiently. Operations will not be impacted, and audit activities are ongoing. The General Audit Chamber is a solid institution. As a board we are most proud of that achievement,” concluded the outgoing Chairman.
