Registrar of the Institute, Mr Sidney Ogodo, said the conference would feature an AGM where elections for the positions of first vice-president and second vice-president would hold.

He added that the electoral committee has commenced the process for the election by inviting eligible members of the institute to signify interest to contest for both positions.
