Chairman Communication

CA Manish Gadia

Dear Professional Colleagues,

“A clear vision backed by definite plans is the way to success”. Hence, we have ensured that our vision for 2021 is crystal clear. As mentioned in my last communication, we will be ‘BOLD’ and FOCUS on CSR to grow as individuals and as a Region.

It give me great pleasure to wish all members and students a very happy 70th Foundation Day of our Regional Council, which is celebrated from 1st April, 2021 onwards.

I am glad to announce that during the last month we generated 49,500 CPE hours from Virtual CPE Meetings.

Based on our focus areas, I am proud to announce three new initiatives undertaken by us, namely the ‘WOW Series’ , the ‘Tech Edge Series’ and ‘Learning from the Legends’ .

Women On Wednesday (WOW) Series
To ensure development and increasing professional opportunities for Women CAs, we have begun the ‘WOW Series of Lectures’. These will take place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. The first in this series was attended by 495 participants.

Tech Edge Series
IT, AI, Blockchain, Big Data, etc. are all increasingly finding their way into our profession. The ‘IT on Thursday’ series will take place on 3rd Thursday of each month and will focus on aspects of Information Technology relevant to the profession.

Learning from the Legends
To inspire and encourage other CAs to get the benefit of experience of the legends, we are starting an initiative to organise a series of interactions with the legends of our profession.

Meeting with Past Presidents & Past Chairmen

To avail the experience and knowledge from the veterans to improve our Region, WIRC organised a meeting of the Past Presidents of ICAI from WIRC and Past Chairmen/Chairpersons of WIRC, which saw productive interactions between current office bearers and the senior members of the Institute.

Meeting With University
We met with Prof. Dinesh Panjwani, Vice Chancellor of Hyderabad Sind National University (HSNCU), and Secretary of the Hyderabad Sind National College Board. We also invited Dr. Hemali Desai, Vice Chancellor of Veer Narmad South Gujarat University of Surat in order to combine our synergies to reach out to a larger student body and give them the gift of a an exciting and growth-oriented career.

Meeting with Members in Industry
We had a meeting with Mr. Ashish P. Gujarati, Vice President & Mr. Manish R. Kapadiya, Hon. Treasurer of South Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SGCCI) to create better relations for the future. We connected with various members in industry like JSW Steel, Forbes Group, Nayara Energy, Aditya Birla & Times Group to explore create stronger synergies.

Covid Vaccination
We are pleased to inform you that WIRC has tied up with hospitals as below:

  • Accord Hospital
  • Tarachand Hospital
  • H G Cancer centre
  • Bhatia Hospital
  • Kokilaben Hospital
  • KG Mittal Hospital

During the month, 4670 CAs and their family members have taken the benefit of the same.

“Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.”

I am sure that members are geared up for the busy season. To keep members at the forefront of subject knowledge, we have organised a number of Webinar on relevant subjects and members are requested to attend the same.

I request you to share your ideas, vision and suggestions to chairman@wirc.in

As always, take care, stay safe and remain healthy.
