We are in the midst of uncertain times due to the spread of COVID-19 pandemic in India and across the world. I hope that each one of you and your family members are safe. I believe that you are continuing to adhere to various guidelines and are taking all the necessary precautions.
At the outset, I must tell you all that I feel honoured and humbled on being elected as the President of the Society. I assure you with a deep sense of commitment that with such an enthusiastic team of Office-Bearers and Managing Committee members, I will do my best and the good work in the best interests of the society. I also convey my deep and sincere thanks to all stakeholders for reposing their trust and faith in me and considering me fit to take up this prestigious and responsible position.
To start with, the Idea behind formation of HCAS is our Managing Committee Team’s wish of building a platform for learning and facilitating better environment for career growth and subject development of fellow professionals.
HCAS shall also provide an environment conducive to students to the pursuit of knowledge and encourage them to achieve their potential to become complete Chartered Accountants.
Learning should be based on doing things and not merely knowing things. Until and unless learning solutions relate to real life and motivate the learner to acquire and apply the knowledge, the whole process will remain superficial. Our society has set specific objectives and has planned activities for achieving excellence in all spheres of technical knowledge. Our vision is based on hard work, open communication, a strong emphasis on team work coupled with a high level of responsibility. This visionary culture allows and emphasises our members not only to adopt the present day challenges but also enriches individual responsibility to the society and our nation at large.
Our aim is to take forward our Society in an ethical way with innovative concepts and ideas. We desire to be one of the leading voluntary organisations of Chartered Accountants in India which enjoys a high level of credibility amongst members within five years down the line.
We also aim to set the quality of our upcoming programmes and publications to set as a bench-mark for others, and our journal is to probably be the best in the profession.
The environment around us is changing constantly and the needs, preferences and profiles of our members are also changing at a rapid pace. New and emerging areas of practice are gaining importance. Technology is also changing the way we approach our work. In such a situation, our Society will constantly innovate and adapt to cater to the changing needs and aspirations of our members.
Before I sign off, I would like to thank you all once again for bestowing this honour on me, showing confidence in my capabilities and considering me worthy of this position. I am looking forward to an eventful and exciting days ahead along with all of you.
Thanks and Regards
CA. Prabina Kumar Moningi
