The MCE, Hon. Collins Offinam Takyi in his welcome address welcomed all members present and thanked representatives from NALAC for making time to educate members.

He acknowledged that the workshop was needful because times keep changing and therefore calls for acquiring new knowledge on ways to tackle the work given.
