As I mentioned in the previous newsletter SICASA Bangalore has started a unique program to develop students oral communication and leadership skills. The name of the program is “SICASA SPEAKERS FORUM”. Which is meeting every Sunday morning 8AM to 10AM at our Bangalore Branch of SIRC of ICAI, Race Course Road Premises, Bangalore.

In every program of SICASA, we are encouraging students speakers, In our first program  Mr Muhammad Ajsal, a student spoke on Technical topic “GST-Matching Concept”. It was well appreciated by all. Looking forward more students to come forward and make use of such opportunities to present their public speaking and presentation skills.

SICASA is of the student, by the student and for the student and I am looking for more and more students participation in all the activities and make it a vibrant SICASA of ICAI. Immediately after May CA examination, we are planning to form a new office bearers for SICASA 17-18. Looking forward a good number of students active participation in the upcoming SICASA activities.
