Okezie charges chartered secretaries, reporters on ethics
President of the Chartered Institute of Certified Secretaries and Reporters of Nigeria (CICSRN), Dr. Amachukwu Chibuzor Okezie, yesterday charged members to be ethical.
He made the call in Enugu, at the opening of its 31st Annual National Conference/General meeting.
The theme of the three-day conference was: “The Nigerian Secretaries and Reporters: Challenges of Office Technology Management and ICT in the 21st Century.”
The president noted that though the challenges of ICT were universal, it require “economic politics and development instincts for any group of professionals to surmount and become practically relevant.”
Okezie explained that the democratic dispensation has provided the institute the opportunity to collectively contribute directly and indirectly to the socio-political, economic and professional growth of the country.
He said upholding integrity and professionalism is critical to the discharge of members’ responsibilities, even as the institute must tackle challenges to playing its required role.
He urged professionals to, as a matter of necessity, give value to their services and training to remain relevant in the changing scheme of things.
Founder and Registrar of the institute, Samuel Ozomah, said the conference in Enugu is coming after the first that was held 20 years ago.
Okezie also commended Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s support for the bill for an act to establish the CICSRN, during his days at the National Assembly.
Participants had expressed concerns about alleged dichotomy in their placement in civil service in some states of the country.
They urged the institute to intervene in the placement, which makes their members to remain at level 14, while civil servants from other professionals grow above that.
