Dear Esteemed Colleagues,
There are few lines that have influenced my life and the way I work, like the one by William Penn which reads. “I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.”
At EIRC, we thrive to deliver the best, fully realizing that becoming better is a process and not an event. We are working towards channelizing our energies into efforts in a manner such that it leads to effortlessness while we serve the profession.
We shall all agree that many a times people fail to be consistent because doing the same thing over and over again may look monotonous and boring, but if we are improving that little bit each day, the same activity becomes a source of delight everyday. I have begun to apply this formula of one step at a time, a little improvement everyday both qualitative and quantitative in all areas of EIRC’s activities. I am confident that this strategy shall help to perform effortlessly at all times.
Some one has correctly opined that if we can get that one percent improvement each day, just imagine how much better we will be in a year’s time! The self belief and confidence that I gain out of the process of one percent improvement each day is immeasurable. Let me take you through the journey of our vibrant regional council and it’s continuously improving activities in the auspicious month of April.
APRIL 2019 @ EIRC
The month of April has been no exceptional than the other months. Full of enthusiasm and energy, the entire team performed with exhilaration. Starting from taking care of the students to members and the community at large, we tried to move closer to our silent oath. An oath, not only towards our immediate stakeholders but to the society in which we live in. Some of our engaging events which are worth mentioning are shared below:
Open House Session
For the first time, any Regional Council in the country organised an open house and interactive session with all its members at all its branches on same day and same time. The suggestions and feedback received are being collated for the necessary action. The same shall also be uploaded on the website of EIRC subsequently. Prior to the open house at EIRC, we also felicitated CA (Dr) Rajesh Kumar, IPS, for his recent elevation to the august position of Commissioner of Police, Kolkata.
Career Awareness Drive at Schools & Colleges
As part of our vision at ICAI, and to popularize the Chartered Accountancy course, career awareness program is being frequently conducted by us in different Schools & Colleges offering commerce stream. This is also an opportunity for us to further showcase the CA brand and its WOW factor to the outside world. A total of 7 such sessions were conducted at different schools during the current month. We invite more members to come forward and help us in organizing more such events.
We have launched a public speaking empowerment drive for our members titled as “WOW Talks”. This would constitute of series of 9 sessions by experts, designed on the lines of the 7 habits of highly effective people by Stephen Covey. We shall also provide opportunity to speak to the successful participants before the members. The first class shall commence on 14th May, 2019. All participants shall be provided CPE hours.
Session on Networking & CABF Awareness
A session on networking and merger of firms in terms of the ICAI guidelines and also an awareness session on CABF was conducted during the month. The members present immensely benefited from the deliberations. Many more such sessions shall be conducted for the benefit of the members.
Information Technology Conference for Small & Medium Practitioners
Information Technology Conference was successfully jointly with DTPA Chartered Accountants’ Study Circle-EIRC. The same was attended by about 235+ participants. The conference focussed on increasing the efficiency of the practising firms with the optimum use of tools of technology. We shall be glad to organise more such joint seminars with the other study circles too.
Friends, we all have only one life to live. We live it the way we want. The trajectory of our lives is determined by the choices we make daily, the consequences of which tell us how well we have lived our life. The development of a professional is not a linear progression. There is truly no beginning or end in being a professional. It is a lifelong learning curve. Let us make the best of this professional life!!
In anticipation of your continuous and valuable feedback.
Wish our profession be talked as one with a WOW!!
