ICAN holds annual conference, set to bridge trust gap
The annual conference of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) is set to hold in December this year.
With the theme: ‘Trust in Governance’, ICAN president, Mrs. Comfort Olu Eyitayo, FCA, said over the past fifty years, the conference has pooled in one place, the largest gathering of accountants in the country.
According to her, the purpose of the conference is to hold conversations that enhance the accounting profession, reposition accountants as professionals for greater impact and relevance.
She added that the theme of this year’s conference came from the need to bridge the trust gap between the governed and the government, enterprises and clients.
Speaking further, she said, “ICAN as a professional body cannot afford to take an unconcerned stance, hence, the need for this discussion to hold. The current situation in the country, across various parameters will be x-rayed and solutions proffered to the matters arising.”
Specifically, she disclosed that the conference is scheduled to hold from November 29 to December 3, 2021 at the Abuja International Conference Centre and the Sheraton Abuja Hotel. It is open to everyone, ICAN members and non-members alike.
Registration is currently ongoing and strictly online.
