The Professional Insurance Ladies’ Association (PILA), has elected Mrs. Ose Oluyanwo, as its president.
Oluyanwo, in her acceptance speech at her investiture in Lagos said she will continue to sustain ethical standard and promote the welfare of women in the insurance industry.
The association, also launched a 194-page seminal book tiitled: “The Pillar: Evolution, Trends and Development of Professional Insurance Ladies Association”.
The publication, according to Mrs Oluyanwo, will serve as an unassailable historical reference as it highlights PILA‘s pathway from infancy till date.
She said her thrust will be the sustenance of the legacies and programmes of her predecessors.
According to her, members must come to terms with the fact that governance or administration of a corporate institution like PILA should be a continuum.
She said: “I believe that each regime must continually build conscientiously on the moulding blocks laid by previous administrations, of which, most times, they are part of. Suffice it to note that PILA already has in place solid programmes such as mentoring programmes for the younger professionals and new entrants; career talk across educational institutions, and most importantly, the completion of our ultra-modern secretariat complex to give the association a more formidable image.
“Similarly, we will vigorously pursue effective data collection for the association and its membership and the sustenance of ethical standards, without forgetting the association’s international responsibilities under the nascent PILA Africa, which would be a light to other sister African countries.
“We will continue to re-orientate members to shun divisive tendencies peculiar to the womenfolk and which often keep us disunited.”
