Briefing the Press Conference about the National Convention, CS Nagendra D Rao, President ICSI, said, “With Good Governance being progressively viewed as a catalyst in enabling trust, transparency and accountability in an organisation, the need for structuring a robust governance framework that facilitates effective decision making, has risen considerably. Good Governance is no longer just a compliance mandate and as Governance Professionals, Company Secretaries today have taken over the responsibility of ensuring that it becomes an all pervasive culture, not just within the organisation but also all across”. He further added “The theme has been rightly chosen to reflect on the renewed role of Company Secretaries as an important driver of an equitable and sustainable development”.

CS Devendra V Deshpande, Vice President, ICSI, CS C Ramasubramaniam, Council Member, ICSI and Chairman, 49th National Convention Organising Sub-Committee, CS N Balasubramanian, Chairman, SIRC, The ICSI & Programme Coordinator, CS Vijay Kumar Sajjan, Chairman, ICSI Bengaluru Chapter & Programme Facilitator and CS Asish Mohan, Secretary, ICSI were also present at the Press Meet.
