Chairman’s Welcome Address Lyndon Magsino, CPA, CIA, CRMA, CFSA, IFQ Mabuhay! Welcome to the website of PICPA Dubai! I am delighted and honored to welcome you in this prestigious institute as we are not only celebrating the successes of our organization, but most importantly, we are solidifying our profession and strengthening the existence of Filipino professionals in the UAE for the benefit our respective companies. Once again, as it is demonstrated in our Theme: Coming together is a Beginning… Keeping Together is Progress… Working Together is Success… …this is the very essence of our Leadership. We are PICPA Dubai and this is the place where we belong!

Lyndon Magsino, CPA, CIA, CRMA, CFSA, IFQ

We, the Filipino CPAs and Accountants, are now joined in a great moment to build our institute and to restore the confidence of our fellows. Thanks to PICPA National and Philippine Consulate for their unwavering support. Together, we will determine the course of PICPA for years to come. Just like when we establish PICPA Qatar 10 years ago, I know it will be a smooth sailing journey, for sure there will be challenges. We will confront challenges and struggles. But we will assure you for a “job well done”. It will be a magnificent year for PICPA Dubai! We must speak our minds openly, discuss our disagreements calmly, and always pursue solidarity. When PICPA is united, PICPA will achieve greater heights! Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the spirit of PICPA. PICPA Dubai will thrive and prosper again. I am deeply honored to be part of our hardworking and committed officers. We, as PICPA-Dubai leaders have the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of all members. We are not elected just to be the officers, but chosen to be the leaders by the quality of our actions and the integrity of our purpose. In behalf of the PICPA Dubai leadership, Thank you, God Bless You, and God Bless PICPA Dubai! Cheers! Lyndon Magsino, CPA, CIA, CFSA, CRMA, IFQ Chairman – PICPA Dubai
