									             PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES (2009/2010)
Appreciation: The Curriculum Committee wishes to appreciate the efforts of the
various states and zones in carrying out successfully the programmes of the
confederation in the last year. The committee is particularly grateful to the National
President, Chief Adeniyi Falade, for his advice, encouragement and concern on the
activities of the committee. This has helped to motivate this committee towards
greater achievements. Nonetheless, the committee pleads with the zones and states to
work harder in this new session to see that programmes of the Confederation receive
more publicity and are implemented more effectively than in the previous years.


FORTHCOMING ACTIVITIES.
    1. 2009 MCPT
    This year‟s MCPT will run from October 2009 to February, 2010. The National
    Secretariat has directed that no MCPT should hold after February, 2010. The
    Confederation is having a new consultant to organize the MCPT workshops. He
    is Dr Sunday Adejimola Amuseghan, Associate Professor, Adekunle Ajasin
    University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State . While we commend the efforts of our
    former consultant, Prof. Pat Ngwu, we hope that our new consultant will take our
    MCPT workshops to greater heights.
