President’s Communication : May & June 2020
Dear Fellow Members and colleagues
Assalamualaikum and greetings to you al,
At the very beginning I pray to Almighty Allah for everyone’s good health and mental well beings. In this time of uncertainity, we need support of one another more than ever. The COVID 19 Pandemic has affected so many us in a multitude of ways; hospitals are overwhelmed, and the economy appears to be heading for a worst recession.
Now after two months’ country wide shutdown, the Institute resumed its offices in May in limited scale in line with government’s instructions. From that very moment, we are constantly pursuing our desired goals.
Besides regular online committee meetings, we held a number of events related to National Budget which went quite well. We also held a number of CPD (Members’ Conference) through digital platform within a gap of less than a month. The response of the members was more than what we expected. More than 700 members in each sessions participated with zeal and enthusiasm. Members were at ease and no doubt learnt a lot as they threw a good number of questions to the paper presenter. It took some time though to sort out IT problems at initial sessions. This was cost effective, largely participatory and offered efficient time management, no doubt.
Now having said so let me update you with the activities of the Institute during May- June 2010.
After the announcement of National Budget 2020, ICAB’s immediate reaction on the Budget was published in national dailies with due importance on 12 June 2020. We congratulated the Government for announcing the budget
