I humbly take over the baton of Ahmedabad Branch of WIRC of ICAI with a deep sense of gratitude and greet you through my first message as the Chairperson of the Best Branch of the country which is one of the largest across all regions.
As I take over the chairmanship from CA Bishan Shah who has been a dear friend, I take immense pride and privilege to chair the Managing Committee as the First Woman Chairperson in the 62 years of existence of Ahmedabad Branch of WIRC of ICAI. The icing on the cake is the Second Youngest President of India , CA Aniket Talati is the member of Ahmedabad Branch and We at Ahmedabad branch are really proud to work under his leadership and guidance.CA profession has been an integral part of my life and this profession has given me a lot of respect and power. I owe everything to my alma mater and have seen closely working with this branch as my husband CA Nirav Choksi was also the past chairman of the branch.I feel proud, privileged and obliged to have qualified into this great and noble profession.
2023 is an exceptional year in many ways as our nation is celebrating Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav and India holds the Presidency of the G20. ICAI will also enter the 75th year of its existence -long legacy of supremacy and partner in Nation building. Our beloved President from Ahmedabad leading from the front CA Aniket Talati and CA Ranjeetkumar Agarwal as the Vice-President ,WIRC will also handover its new leadership to the new team and Never ever a chairperson would have even dreamt of getting a year in which the president is from the same branch. I am blessed and we assure at the branch level to carry out its functions in synch with their Action Plans and the theme set up by our President CA Aniket Talati. I also hope to represent the problems,ideas and innovations of today's young chartered accountants who will sculpt the future of our great profession.
