Addressing the curtain raiser press conference, CS Ranjeet Pandey, President, The ICSI said, “The presence of practising professionals in India Inc. can be compared somewhat with water. It changes form with change in industry, the sector, the legal framework encasing and even so the dynamic socio-political environment. Given the ever increasing role of the professionals, it is high time that the brigade of Company Secretaries especially those in practice ensure good governance in their personal conduct while moving forward in their professional pursuits.”
Company Secretaries in practice are trusted by the regulators for their role, responsibility and accountability towards the multifarious stakeholders. Understanding the novelty of this role, the Institute of Company Secretaries of India leads the way with its various initiatives aimed at upskilling and honing our members to perform their designated accountabilities with utmost diligence

The sub-themes focussed on emerging areas of Artificial Intelligence and Start-ups and expansion of existing activity base in Secretarial Audit are a forthright endeavour to strike a chord between the existing and expected role of professionals”.
