The 30th National Conference of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (ICASL) will be held on September 18 and 19 in Colombo.
The institute said the theme of this year’s conference is ‘Leading a New Beginning’. Chairman of the Conference Committee Sujeewa Rajapakse said this year’s theme focuses on the situation today. “We are today at the end of possibly the worst financial crisis that we will see in our lifetime,” he said. “At the same time our country has been rid of what was the single largest negative factor holding back economic progress for the past two and a half decades.”
According to a press release, Chairman of the Technical Committee Channa Gunasekera said that a group of eminent and respected corporate personalities from overseas as well as from Sri Lanka will conduct the technical sessions over the two days and take participants through five main presentations titled – Leaders and Market Makers, Agile Organizations, Making Corporate Boards More Accountable, Cash Alert and Common Cents.
The final session – Survive and Thrive - is a panel discussion which connects all the topics that were discussed in the previous five sessions.
