The sustainability of any organization depends on how amicably commitments are transformed
into action. The confidence you gave to this National Council expects a radical
changes. The steps taken in the leadership of my predecessor have set priorities
and a ground towards right direction. This is for the first time any President of
the Institute set an example to voluntarily accept the decisions made in-principle
before it become the law.
We intend to maintain this tradition and planning to set goals for next year and
there onward I expect from the Council to decide new leadership to lead the Institute.
I am lucky enough to work with Mr. Kashif when he was kind enough to complement
my initiatives and ideas which supported me a lot in discharging my responsibilities
as Vice President and Chairman of Examinations and Research & Publications Committees.
I think this was the reason that the Council has showed its confidence and transfer
leadership of this prestigious Institute to me. The dream come true when for the
first time in 65 years of history of the Institute, a member from Manchester of
Pakistan not only get elected on the Council of the Institute but also become its
In order to bring good governance, we are going to implement performance oriented
culture and will also engage all members through the disclosure of transparent information.
Among the priorities, we set to take quick decisions by having more meetings of
the National Council, Executive and other Committees. We intend to make an independent
and empowered Secretariat to serve students and members without any influence of
the Council members.
We decided to give priority to (i) amendments in Chartered Management Accountant
Bill; (ii) launch new Syllabus; (iii) initiate process to amend CMA Regulations;
(iv) continue advocacy to effectively pursue our case with SECP and other regulatory
bodies; (v) global collaboration; (vi) completion of CMA Tower at Karachi; (vii)
construction of Faisalabad campus building; (viii) develop corporate identity guidelines;
(ix) undertake organizational development exercise so as to align Institute's functions
with best international practices, setting KPIs for departments and accordingly
decide alignment of salaries; and (x) settle all litigations and enquiries judiciously.
The capacity of the Institute to meet its expenses from operational revenue and
to take growth initiatives is very much depending on how early we can overcome ongoing
deficit of the Institute. I am confident that above-mentioned measures will regain
confidence of members, students, prospects, corporate sector and other stakeholders
in general and would In-sha-Allah significantly help in making us self-sufficient
with less reliance on financial income.
Last but not the least, it is my personal desire to bring unemployment among our
members at zero-level. A proposal to make the Management Accountancy top tone in
the industry is also under active consideration. It will be unfold after the approval
of the Council. May Almighty Allah enable us to achieve this goal for the interest
of all the community of Management Accountant.
I hope to have full support of our members' community, hence these goals may be
achieved in true letter and spirit. Please feel free to contact me and any of my
Council members and Executive Director to apprise you with your suggestions. We
look forward to have your continued support.
With utmost regards
