The Institute of Cost Accountants of India
(Statutory body under an Act of Parliament)
My Dear Professional Colleague,
The Election to the Council of the Institute and the Regional Councils have been announced. The elections of our Institute conducted every 4 years is an opportunity for all the members to exercise their voting right and choose the best candidates amongst themselves to serve the profession. I request all the members to vote judiciously in the best interest of the profession.
However especially in any election season rumor mongers are normally on a rampage. Our Institute elections are no different. We must remember that ours is a professional Institute. We are all highly qualified professionals. Our elections should be contested on the candidates own merits rather than spreading ill about other candidates. It is expected that we promote the highest level of professionalism in all our actions. We must understand that mass mailing incorrect information and spreading thru social media will not only affect the candidates but image of our own Institute. I request all CMAs not to promote / blindly believe any propaganda. Use your own wisdom and only then come to conclusions.
Remember Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools and accepted by idiots.
