AGC 2018: Every registered member will get the conference materials – TCCP

The Chairman of the Technical Committee on Conference Planning (TCCP) for the 58th Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. George Etomi, has promised registered conferees to the 2018 Annual Conference that they will all collect their conference materials.

The TCCP Chair reacting to numerous complaints from lawyers who paid for the conference but are experiencing untold hardship in Abuja trying to pick up conference materials even after designating their choice location for pick up during registration.

According to Mr. Etomi “, the conference is meticulously planned, and every registered member will get the material whether the conferee attends the conference or not. The material is enough, so if they don’t come, theirs will be available and will get to them”. He further stated that lawyers who paid but could not attend should pick theirs from their respective Branch Chairmen.

Following the recent announcement by the Local Organising committee (LOC) Lawyers within FCT have started collecting their conference materials with series of complaints on the poor quality of this year’ annual event.

Lamenting his ordeal, an Abuja based lawyer, Peter Odia said:

“@ NBA CONFERENCE: I just picked my conference materials from Class-A Park Wuse 2 Abuja. The “Conference Materials” contain my Conference tag, a blue folder, a jotter and biro.

“I paid 100k for this conference as an early bird. Yet, even the flash drive they promised is missing. I feel very cheated. There is a dire need for accountability in the affairs of the NBA.”

Another conferee, Marcellinus Akamabe posted a picture of the conference materials he collected and wrote, “NBA conference materials. The beginning and end of 40k. Day light fraud. No flash drive.”

Yet another conferee lamented thus, “The conference materials they are giving to lawyers are not more than N2k.”

Reacting to the numerous complaints by registered conferees who are yet to receive complete materials the TCCP Chair, George Etomi, disclosed that a conference application will be deployed instead of flash drives.

According to him “A more modern approach to conference materials is being deployed which is the NBA Conference app”.

“Flash drives were considered initially, but the idea was discarded because flash drives can easily be misplaced,” Etomi asserted.

He stated further that the conference will be stream live on Channel 197 of DSTV, the app and CNBC.
