The Institute of Directors-Ghana (IoD-Gh) Council has elected Mrs. Angela Carmen Appiah, Assistant Registrar, Nursing and Midwifery Council, as its new president.
Since the Council’s founding, she is the institution’s first female president.
Currently serving as vice president and a fellow of the IoD-Gh, Mrs. Appiah was chosen by the council to oversee transitions and currently chairs three interim management committees (IMC).
She has also held the position of chair of the Institute’s Regional Outreach Committee (RoC), and she played a key role in the efforts to establish regional branches.
At the Institute’s 17th Annual General Meeting and Council Elections, which were held through Zoom Video Conferencing Virtual Platform on May 11, 2023, Mrs. Appiah was chosen.
She also offers technical assistance to the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) and is a fellow at the Ghana College of Nurses and Midwives (GCNM).
In a brief statement, Mrs. Appiah expressed gratitude for the chance to lead the Institute and emphasized the need of moving IoD-Gh forward.
“We shall be mindful of all stakeholders both local and international and bring together our individual and collective wealth to bring the Institute to a great pedestal,” she said.
She added that, “On behalf of my fellow council members and myself, we pledge our commitment and resolute focus to raise the flag of IoD-Gh.”
As vice-president, Madam Mary Asare-Yeboah, a licensed insolvency practitioner, will assist Mrs. Appiah.
