The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (ICASL) is launching the 'Induction to Hall of Fame' recognition which aims to appreciate senior chartered accountants who have made an outstanding contribution towards the development of the institute, the profession and society in general.
Nominations for this purpose close on September 15, 2011. The event, planned as an annual event, will recognize senior members of the ICASL of good standing over the age of 65 years, who have been recognized at the highest level and whose efforts reflect the institute's core values.
"The ICASL believes that it is imperative to recognize its most senior and esteemed members during their present lifetime rather than afterwards, and hence the decision to launch the Induction to Hall of Fame recognition," the institute said.
A special committee will evaluate the nominations and make their finalized recommendations to the ICASL council, following which the council will make a final decision based on the special committee findings.
The recipients of the ICASL "Induction to Hall of Fame" will be announced next month and will be invited to attend a prestigious ceremony where the recipients will be presented with a specially-designed award.
