Meanwhile, 8th February was a tense day for concurrent audit participants, all 46 of them. It was the day of Assessment test and many of our CA’s were taking the dreaded CA exams after 10-12 years.
Another landmark event happened o n 16th February. The 1st batch of Advanced ITT (reportedly in entire SIRC region, though unconfirmed) was started. 36 hours of the 100 hours was taken by experts from out of Mangalore. Another program, English course for Students was inaugurated on 15th February. Though this is a structured course of board o f studies, this was held for the first time in Mangalore in association with Pro-Act Toastmasters club. Valentine Day at Mangalore branch started love-affair with GST with 5 distinguished resource persons from Bangalore.
As I sign off from the highest position in the branch, I thank you for the best wishes and felicitations all through the year. I strongly believe that this gave me the strength and virtue to lead the branch in a befitting manner.
