The Sri Lanka Chapter of the Institute of Chartered Management Accountants (Australia) recently appointed the Executive Council for the year 2011/12 with Murali Prakash being appointed as President and Dr. Nalaka Godahewa as the Honorary Chairman.
ICMA is a rapidly expanding accounting body in Australia with an increasing membership in India, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates and Sri Lanka. ICMA has been present in Sri Lanka since 1999 with the Academy of Finance as its strategic education partner.
In a statement issued by the local unit, Mr. Prakash said that the ICMA council for the year 2011 is looking to enhance the accounting body’s role as a conduit of knowledge and networking among professionals.
“The ICMA (Australia) programme is very well accepted in Sri Lanka and each year we have 100 to 150 participants enrolling. ICMA is gaining in popularity because it offers a very unique proposition for non-finance professionals to gain financial acumen within a flexible study programme. As the ICMA council we are keen to further this role of ICMA by creating opportunities for professional development for both members and non-members through a series of events planned throughout the year.”
