ANNUAL SEMINARS – A BRIEF HISTORY
Each year for the last 35 years, ICPAK has maintained a rich tradition of congregating once a year in the month of May to reflect on the profession and emerging issues affecting the nation. This year’s seminar follows in pattern as it seeks to reinforce the role of professional accountants in safeguarding public interest. The previous 35th Annual Seminar attracted 2,500 participants largely drawn from Kenya but with representation from Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Nigeria. This year, the event is targeted to attract a wider representation of East Africa and the continent at large.
