Dear Professional Collegues,
The July showers have already started and we have just completed many professional Development Programs of topical relevance.The Period from March-June 2014 will be remembered for various programs and seminars organised by ICSI-WIRC. The Regional Council, chapters in the western belt and various Study Circle centres organised several programs on Companies Act,2013. We at WIRC have orgainsed two Orientation Programs on Companies Act. The participation in all these events were exemplary.
The inaguation of the Oral Teaching Classes was held on May 15, 2014 at WIRC premises. We have as of now five centres spread across the city and its suburbs which can cater to the needs of students.
I am happy to share with you that CS R Sridharan,President,The ICSI on our request addressed our members during the Orientation Program held on May 23,2014. WIRC organised a meet at Hindu Gymkhana on the same day to felicitate the senior members, Past Presidents from the region, Former Chairmen, ICSI-WIRC for their selfless contribution to the institute.
The convocation of the Western Region was held on May 24,2014 at the BSE Convention Hall which was attended by around 780 delegates including Prize winners, guest and relatives.
ICSI-WIRC organised it Annual Regional Conference at Lavassa on June 06 & 07, 2014 on the theme “Ministerial to Managerial-Challenges and Opportunities” which was attended by around 220 delegates. I thanks all the resource persons who travelled all the way to Lavassa to share the experience with the delegates and made the conference memorable.
To add to the list of activities ICSI-WIRC was given an opportunity to host the 15th National PCS Conference which was attended by more than 300 members in practice from far and near.The deliberations in the conference were excellent.
Many programs on New Companies Act were held during the period,but many more to be organised in the days to come to create proficiency amongst our members.
The target to achieve is like the team which chases the 20-20 version of cricket where the required runs are many a times more than the number of overs. Similarly in the coming months for the benefit of members many more innovative initiatives are in the pipeline.
I take this opportunity to compliment the Chairmen of various committees for showing sheer dedication and request them to maintain the same energy for better results.
Before I conclude I put forward two requests to all the members of region and they are; 1) Join the Professional Membership Scheme of ICSI-WIRC and 2) Be a Proud member of CSBF
The yester months have witnessed some turmoil but the months to come is going to be ours.It reminds me the famous quote of Aristotle Onassis who said “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
See you again Next month
With Warm Regards,
CS Ragini Chokshi
