My Dear Members
At the outset, let me thank immediate past Chairman Mr. Anilkumar Parameswaran , who worked untiringly for the branch even under such challenging pandemic situation. It was through his effort and that of our Cental Council Member Babu Sir and RCM Joemon sir we got the green signal from the Institute and from the City Corporation for the extension of our Branch Building. I would also like to thank all our managing committee members and members of the Branch for their trust in me and giving me an opportunity to serve as the chairman of the branch for the next 1 year.
I am aware of my responsibility and take up that challenge with humility. Being a chairman doesn’t imply that I have my own decisions. The final decision will be collective decision of the Management committee.
I am fully aware of the fact that our Branch is entering in to the Golden Jubilee year ‘For the next one year our top priority will be to complete the construction of the extension of our existing branch building. Proposed construction of Lift in the new building will be of great help to the senior citizen members who at present find it very difficult to climb to the upstairs. I would also like to conduct Quality CPE programs to enable knowledge enrichment and also bring the CA Fraternity closer together. I would also like to focus on conducting various seminars and activities for the students for guiding them further in the profession as they are the future of this great profession. My next important focus would be to reach out to and help members who are senior citizens, who we all know suffered the most during covid pandemic .
But as you all know, nothing could be done by me alone and it requires a strong teamwork from our management committee, Staff Members of the Branch and support from all our members as well. Thus, with all your love and support, I hereby accept this great honour as the chairman of the Thiruvananthapuram Branch of ICAI.
So, once again I would like to thank all of you for showing faith in me and assure you that i will try my level best to do justice to my post
