Friends, I will outline for you how the year will span
out. The first task is in shifting and setting
up the new premises at Padil. We have
decided to use the old premises as a reading room and ITT lab. The old premises will also be used to hold
study circle meetings and teleconferences.
The administrative office will be in the new building. All seminars and classes and certificate
courses like GMCS, Orientation etc will be held in new premises.
This year we plan to have intensive study workshops for
members. The first one will be on the
new Companies Act. A certificate program
on concurrent audit is also on the anvil. Infosys has come up with extensive IT
training module for CAs. If members
express interest, we will have more certificate courses like the one on
international taxation and valuation.
Hopefully, we will have the first ever residential seminar of Mangalore
Branch this year. Owing to many members in the industry, we plan to hold
industry specific seminars for bankers, mega companies in and around
Mangalore. Joint programs with
neighbouring branches and other Organisations is also planned to promote
goodwill for our profession.
SICASA Mangalore has been given a
go ahead to plan studentís seminars/ conferences including those of state/
national level. Popularising CA course at schools and colleges is one of our
targets. We hope to cover most schools and colleges of geographic areas under
our branch. We are exploring possibility
of making the branch Website a powerful tool for communication and reporting programs,
uploading seminar background material etc.
Many CAs and students are actively
involved in branch activities and we thank them and hope they continue to do so
the ensuing year. I invite all of you to
join us in building a great organisation. Even small things like leading a
study circle meeting, recommending good programs and facilities, suggestions
for betterment of branch will be of great help.
Look forward to your active
participation this year.
CA. A K Shyamala Shenoy
