President’s Communication: January 2021
Dear Felow Members,
Assalamu Alaikum, Greetings to you all, At the very outset, I express my gratefulness to Almighty Allah for bestowing me with the noble responsibility to serve this prestigious Institute as President for 2021. My sincere thanks to the Members of the Council for their confidence and electing me as the president of the institute. I believe everything that we enjoy is a result of someone's hard work. Some work is visible and other work goes unseen, but both are equally important. We would like to remember all of our predecessors who led the institute to this stage. With utmost solemnity, I recall the hard work and sacrifices of our predecessors to bring the institute as what we are today.
Dear members, we have been witnessing robust digital transformation; COVID has just expedited the process. It is really time for us to quickly adopt and be relevant to this changing world.
Now on a different note, as you are aware, the different standing and non-standing committees of the Council 2021 have already been approved. However, there are scopes to coopt members as the Committee and Boards think necessary. I hope, the chairmen and the members of these committees will spare their valuable times for the cause of the profession and the Institute.
Having this short prelude, now I would like to update you on some major activities and the initiatives undertaken during the Month of January 2021.
