FASA brings on board professional bodies and potential partners like KASNEB, CMA, ICPAK, ICPSK, ICIFA, KPMG and ERNST
AND YOUNG to give public lectures to its members and other students. The executive board of CUK-FASA appreciates the patron and the university management for support extended to them especially linkages. A notable case is the previous public lecture held on Monday 31st October, 2016 at our Main Campus’ Nordic hall.
FASA is run through various subcommittees; Finance and investment committee, cooperative business committee, alumni and external afﬁliation committee, publicity committee amongst ad hoc committees. This makes it outstanding. This is a step towards mentoring almost everyone in the club to inclusive leadership.
The association is currently working on a proposed member awareness scheme. FASA plans to own two magazines, The Student Co-operator and The Researcher. This will be published annually at the beginning of every academic year. The magazines will be supplied to students, alumni, the university administration and potential sponsors to communicate the association’s goals and mission to its clients and other stakeholders.
The CUK-FASA team wishes to pass gratitude to all stakeholders for their continued support as we roll out our second phase of sensitization.

‘The race is not to the swift or neither battle to the strong nor does food comes to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favour to the learned but time and chance happens to them all.
The analogy here in reminds us of our being. The place of doing that which we have been called for in life that ﬁlls us with enthusiasm, which eventually gives us a sense of euphoria and conﬁdence. A hindrance to this that most of us have succumbed to is our discouragement in childhood which has piled up layers of predisposition, fear and guilt in pursuant of our destinies as years elapse. Nonetheless, the fact that we have life is an implication that not all is gone, we can avert or disinter that which has conﬁned our minds to impede our progress. As we seek to align ourselves to the will of God for in whom we get our sense of living and existence we have to remember that, ‘’as warriors of light we must be prepared to have patience in difﬁcult times and to know that the universe is conspiring for in our favour even though we may not understand how’’, Paulo Coelho.
Let us all arise and shine to illuminate the world in the various spheres of life for which we have been gifted because ultimately we will be held accountable.’
