I thank the members of the Bahrain Chapter of ICAI for giving us the opportunity to be of service to the profession. The vision, hard work and service by our legendary leaders since the inception of the Chapter in 1985 has ensured that the Bahrain Chapter of ICAI is one the most vibrant and well respected Overseas Chapters of ICAI. It is a great honour for me and my team to take over the management of the Chapter with such a great legacy and rich history of excellence. As the Chairperson of the Executive Committee, my team and I are getting ready to take the Chapter into the future during the term where our theme will be:
"LOG INTO THE FUTURE"
1. "Log into Future" is about new digital way of doing things. The digitalisation of our world has been accelerated by the global pandemic. The world will never be the same and even if we get back to normal, it will be a new normal, a digital normal. This is what we want to embrace and log into and be innovative in our approach.
2. "Log into the Future" is about ensuring the future of the Chapter is secured from a long term sustainability perspective.
3. "Log into the Future" is about my endeavour to mould the young members of this team in to Future leaders of BCICAI
4. "Log into the Future" is also about our mission to prepare the members for the future by enhancing their current skills, adding new skills, opening new avenues for members to reinvent themselves.
We are at a re-defining phase in human history, one which requires us to transform, be positive and take the opportunities. With this in mind, we have set up seven strategic objectives which would drive our efforts during the year.
To make the all of our plans a reality, I appeal to all the members to come forward and actively participate in the activities of the Chapter. The challenges of the present time can only be overcome by the sticking together and supporting each other. Remember every thought, every feedback and every little action matters in a crisis.
I welcome all the members to join us and “Log into the Future".
