The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) was established by the Act of Parliament No 15 of 1965 and has membership strength of 50459. It is one of the foremost Accounting bodies in Africa and a member of the global Accounting Body: International Federation of Accountants (IFAC); Pan African Federation of Accountants (PAFA); Association of Accountancy Bodies in West Africa (ABWA) and Chartered Accountants Worldwide (CAW).
The Institute is desirous of regularizing the database of its members to improve communication, serve them better and provide the enriched benefits of being a member of a global professional body. Also, this update has become expedient due to regular request by regulators, government and various stakeholders of the institute to provide information relating to its members.
In view of the above, the Institute is requesting members to urgently carry out their profile update on or before September 30, 2020.
Members should kindly logon to www.icanportal.org/members to review information on their profile page and update any changes with a view to ensuring its accuracy and completeness.
Furthermore, the Institute wishes to inform members that information provided would be reflected in the Institute’s Membership Year Book, which would capture only financial members and published in the first quarter of 2021.
