The roles of company secretaries have evolved from performing only compliance and administrative functions to having a much more strategic and deliberative role as an organisation's governance advisor. The level of responsibility calls for a thorough knowledge of the business of the organisation and of the laws, rules and regulations that govern its activities. It also requires astute judgment and considerable confidence.
In 2018, HKICS organised it first series of Practical Company Secretarial Workshops. The workshops received an overwhelming response. HKICS is pleased to have primarily Mrs April Chan, Past President and Chairman of Technical Consultation Panel of the Institute and Inaugural President of Corporate Secretaries International Association Limited (CSIA), to re-run a series of practical workshops to facilitate company secretarial and governance professionals at their various stages of careers to appreciate the dynamic and evolving roles of company secretaries.
