Keep positive mindset, ICSAN charges new members
Noting that the role of the chartered secretary had evolved from being just coordinators and administrators to that of gatekeeper and repositories of corporate knowledge, regulations, and good governance, ICSAN said chartered secretaries and administrators needed to continue to learn, develop and grow to meet up with job challenges.
Speaking at the 20th induction ceremony of ICSAN, a fellow of the institute and Chairperson, Board of Trustees, United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking, Julie Donli, said as chartered secretaries and administrators, members must recognise the value of what they bring to the table and ensured that the value is not only recognised but adequately rewarded.
Donli, who spoke on ‘The Chartered Secretary and Administrator: Understanding your Worth and Potential’, urged the newly inducted to continuously learn on the go, adapt, evolve, disrupt, innovate, stay consistent, stay inspired, and keep a positive mindset.
While charging them to make themselves relevant, proactive, and versatile, she said it was imperative that as chartered secretaries, they should understand their worth and potential as well as know the value they bring to their organisations and clients.
She added that they needed to broaden their role to become facilitators and enablers in the areas of oversight “through to foresight, director reviews, succession planning, and inductions, corporate planning as well as in risk management and strategy.”
President and Chairman of Council, ICSAN, Bode Ayeku, charged the newly inducted to undertake their assigned tasks with consummate skill and expertise as expected of a chartered secretary and administrator.
He said through dint of hard work, they owe themselves the responsibility of excelling in their profession and advancing in a career.
He charged them to be ethically upright and not found guilty of misconduct amounting to ethical impropriety, else such a person would lose his membership status.
