The 28th day of February has been declared as founder’s day by the President of the Ghana Institute of Surveyors Kwadwo Osei Asante.
This was during the launch of the founder’s day of the Ghana Institute of Surveyors at the Kofi Annan ICT Centre in Accra.
The founder’s day, he noted was to pay proper and fitting glowing tribute to the pioneers, the founding fathers and mothers through whose toil and sweat brought them where they are today. “We further salute those who watered the seed over the years sown by these Pioneers until fruition.” He stated and guaranteed that their efforts will not be in vain.
Kwadwo Osei Asante stressed that instead of celebrating the day with their founding members, due to historical references in their constitution, the founder’s day was launched as a yearly celebration.
He added that the greatest challenge the institute faces is their financial base and therefore on behalf of the Governing Council invited suggestions and inputs from all on how best to improve upon their finances and concluded that the institute that boast of many wealthy members are beset with poor finances.
