Chairperson Speaks

CA Sonu Jain

My beloved Professional colleagues,

Once George Bernard Shaw said, “Life isn t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself".

With this milieu, I assume with the deepest sense of responsibility the prestigious office of Chairperson of the Eastern India Regional Council of our Institute for the year 2018-19, the last term of the Twenty Second Regional Council. I convey my heartiest regards to all my predecessors, illustrious and worthy past leaders to take our Region to newer highs. I am thankful to all my colleagues in the Council to pose faith on me to shoulder the responsibility of the prestigious post. On 26th February 2018 we took oath to give our best to serve the profession, members & students with dedicated & innovative ways. More so, it is also a challenge and blessing all together on me to take over the highest office of this Region (EIRC) as the first lady, first time to this coveted post.

Oh behalf of the members of our Region, I heartily congratulate CA. Naveen ND Gupta for having taken over as the Hon’ble President and CA Prafulla P Chhajed as the Hon’ble Vice President of our Institute, the two flag bearers of our Institute.

A determined effort of our beloved Council Members of our Region, have been a constant support to our Regional for all our efforts. We in this Regional Council wish to assure them that there will no dearth of efforts and sweats on our part in initiating every step to fructify all the dreams they possess in extending our qualitative services to all our stake holders.

The schedule of events is enumerated in this edition of the newsletter and the members are requested to take note of the various forthcoming activities of the EIRC of our Institute. I also seek suggestions from my

members spread across the Region to come forward and guide us and we few representatives is not inadequate to take care of all situations and address all issues given the precarious conditions our country is facing in this scenario of scams, frauds and other mishaps. We have seen how the aberrations caused recently, initially had a dent to our professional aptitude. We professionals have to ensure quality service along with devotion and loyalty. ICAI has clarified its position as a regulator and has already moved with suitable actions. What is observed is that public confidence should be restored and expectations from the auditor should be flagged so that the CAs as they have served the nation earlier continue their steadfast march in the aspect of sustaining Public confidence in financial reporting.

My best wishes to all my Branch representatives and Study Circles, Chapters and Groups to continue to do their best and I hope they continue with their great efforts. EIRC has conferred awards for Best Branches and Best Students’ Associate recently on 24th February 2018. I give due credit to all the awardees and wish them success for their future endeavours.

Before I conclude, I wish you and your family a very bright and colourful Holi!! I wish each one of prosperity, happiness, longevity and all round progress on every day of life. I would always be looking forward for your unstinted support and cooperation in the future to achieve the objective of EIRC.

Thanking you,

CA (Ms.) Sonu Jain
