Southern Regional Committee 2013-17
The Southern Regional Committee (SRC) of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan (ICAP) is responsible to provide its members with a platform for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) via programmes for professional updates and enhancement of soft skills.
CPD activities are provided through seminars, conferences and workshops. The SRC is working on introducing CPD Programmes through the channel of webinars, for the convenience of its members. Each year the SRC offers its members a diverse range of topics to choose from for their CPD requirements and is continuously striving to enhance the quality of CPD programmes alongside with the number of hours per year.
The SRC believes in a healthy work-life balance, hence strives to provide social activities to its members and their families. A headline social event is the Annual Family Get together. Recently, an Annual Dinner for members has been introduced where members get the opportunity to socialise outside work. The SRC also aims to provide social evenings with families where the members can enjoy a taste of the softer side of life, such as light humour and comedy.
The bi-annual Certificate Distribution Ceremony for newly qualified Chartered Accountants is also organised under the aegis of the Southern Regional Committee.
In addition to catering for the CPD requirements of members the SRC also oversees the affairs of the Chartered Accountants Students’ Association, South (CASA-S) and the library. A role of mentoring and guidance is provided to the elected members and opportunities for learning and development are created for the student body.
The SRC encourages the members to share their feedback to serve them better.
