Chairman's Message  
It is my greatest delight for the trust and faith bestowed on me as 32nd Chairman of the Nagpur Branch of WIRC of ICAI. With great honor and humility I have accepted the position as the Chairman of the Nagpur Branch of WIRC of ICAI. I consider the chairmanship as a call to duty; a call I am prepared for and willing to undertake with complete devotion and dedication.

Nagpur Branch of WIRC of ICAI in the past has had outstanding leaders and thinkers who have contributed immensely for the benefit of the profession and for the Institute as whole. No other Branch in the country has been fortunate to have such great statistics in all fields. It is because of such personalities the Branch is being continuously recognized for the contributions being made to the profession and to the society as whole. I firmly believe that the rich history of the Branch should never be forgotten and we owe it to the members and students of this profession.

We are fully aware that the there is a need for us to come together to protect our profession now more than ever. It therefore behooves on us to respond quickly to the changing dynamics of the Indian economy so that we continue to have the same respect that Chartered Accountants have received in past. Indeed there is no better time than now to strengthen the profession and reposition it for the task ahead. I therefore think “Pursuing Excellence” is the call of the hour and the CA professionals should today have the ultimate goal of excelling in the respective fields of work and to keep the flag of the institute high at all times.

The Branch under my leadership shall work upon the core idea of updating the knowledge and skills along with creating an atmosphere of unity amongst the members. The programs to be delivered in the coming year would enable the members and the students to reach the peak of excellence in their practice and service as a respected person of the society.

I wish to also congratulate CA. Sandeep Jotwani, for leading the Branch in 2017-18 is a very effective manner which was recognized by ICAI by awarding All India Second Best Branch Award, All India Second Best Branch of Student Association at Central level and Best Branch of WIRC and Second Best Branch of WICASA at WIRC Level.

Dear colleagues with all the opportunities and challenges that come with my acceptance to serve us all, I am of the belief that this journey will not be a smooth one if I am to walk it alone and thus I hope to have continuous support from the members and students of this noble institution. I therefore look forward to work with you all.

Yours in Profession
CA. Umang V Agrawal
