Dear Professional Colleague,

 

Strategic thought process and structuring the firm’s matrix with built-in flexibility to embrace challenges is critical for delivering enhanced value in dynamic and transformative business environments. The standard blueprint of a firm’s optimal structure necessitates galvanizing it with agility, technology and skilled workforce. This will ensure in aligning the younger generation in effectively building up strategies and setting up priorities, methodologies, policies and procedures

with real time insights for adopting best practices. With immense pleasure, I would like to share with you that the CA Students’ National Conference will be organized on 16th July & 17th July at Kalamandir, Kolkata on physical mode after a span of three long years. I am sure that the deliberations by eminent resource persons at the conference will

serve as an exceptional learning platform for the student fraternity and make a meaningful impact

on their academic targets and growth prospects. The conference will also be providing opportunity

to students for exhibiting their ability of making presentations on topics of their academic

curriculum. I request you to encourage your articles and the students known to you, to register and

actively participate in the conference and not miss the opportunity of availing countless benefits

offered by the event.

For catering to professional development needs and for enhancement of professional expertise,

numerous seminars, workshops and the like were conducted during the last one month, both on

physical and virtual platform. On 24th June, Joint Audit Conclave was co-hosted with Institute of

Internal Auditors, India, Calcutta Chapter at Kolkata, together with other premier professional

institutes on the theme “Future of Profession- Adapt, Transform, Innovate”. The event was attended

by more than 200 professional delegates representing various organizations of our country and

Bangladesh. A seminar on International MSME Day was conducted in EIRC premises in recognition of

the contribution of MSMEs towards our country’s economy and to discuss about the role of

Chartered Accountants in the growth and sustainable development of these industries. Recently,

Sub-regional conference with the theme “Jagruti” was hosted by Siliguri Branch. The deliberations by

eminent speakers at the Conference enlightened the delegates with their valuable guidance and

insights, vital for operating in an environment witnessing transformations and challenges. With the

aim of updating and imparting clarity on various critical issues related to Goods and Services Tax, a

three days Virtual Conclave was conducted from 12th July to 14th July, 2022.

To commemorate the Foundation Day of our Institute and to strengthen the bond within the

member fraternity, CA week was celebrated from 28th June to 4th July, 2022. In addition to the

various programs, workshops, seminars and multiple well participated competitions, several social

activities conducted during the week which included Blood donation camp, Roti on Wheels and visit

to Orphanage. With utmost humbleness, I would like to share with you that more than 120 persons

donated their blood at the donation camp. Further, various sports and fun-filled activities viz.

Cricket, Badminton, Darts, Mini Marathon, Cyclothon and Zumba were organized in Happy CA Zone

at ECO Park in which members, students, employees and their families participated with great zeal

and enthusiasm. It was indeed a delight watching happy faces of the participants during the funfilled day. Later during the CA Week, distinguished industrial experts, academicians and eminent

faculties deliberated on the topics - Impact of Inflation on Indian Industries and Importance of Green

Energy to Industries. The learned panelists and speakers highlighted the reasons of current inflation,

the effects of inflation on Indian economy, benefits of renewable energy for sustainable

development and the headway made in this regard in our country. I would also like to take this

opportunity to thank all the members, students, employees and their families for being a part of CA

week celebrations and for making it memorable for all of us.

With immense pleasure and pride, I would like to convey my heartfelt congratulations and best

wishes to CA.Shivani Shah for winning Double Gold at Kettlebell World Championship, 2022 at

Greece. Her well deserved success at the international competition has once again brought utmost

pride and honour to our fraternity and our nation.

On 23rd of July, IT Conference is being organized for enabling members to gain insights on

profession-friendly digital solutions that can be implemented in the firm for securing

transformations inevitable for achieving future growth. In addition to this, many more value addition

programmes on diverse topics of professional interest are being planned for this month, which shall

be intimated to you as and when they are finalized.

My dear member, in the long run, evolving technologies will transform the work of professionals,

demanding newer ways of providing service deliverables. With innovation and technology taking

centre stage, acquiring hands on work experience and requisite skills has become inevitable to thrive

in the changing ecosystem. Hence, we have to be proactive about the transformational initiatives for

reaping rewards of progress. I strongly believe that the key to change lies within ourselves and its

potential of creating possibilities is only limited to our imagination and aspirations.



Best wishes always
