NIMN set to announce bonafide members soon

By Oghale Mafuru

The Council of the National Institute of Marketing of Nigeria, NIMN has indicated that it will be publishing names of bonafide marketers in accordance with the provisions of the NIMN Act number 25 of 2003.

This was confirmed in an exclusive interview with MARKETING EDGE by Idorenyen Enang, President & Chairman of the Governing Council of the institute.

Recall that the National Institute of Marketing of Nigeria had in a statement given a 90-day window for dormant and lapsed members who had a backlog of unpaid subscriptions for years preceding 2020 to pay for the years 2021 and 2022 cumulatively to have the backlog written off.

it read: Effective from July 1 to September 30, 2022, the National Institute of Marketing of Nigeria (NIMN) is  offering a 90-day window of opportunity to its lapsed and dormant members with backlogs of non-payment of their annual membership subscriptions from 2020 backward to reactivate their membership and be reintegrated into the Institute as active members”

“Payment of 2021 and 2022 membership subscriptions at the same time will qualify you for the backlog of outstanding subscriptions from 2020 backward to be written off”.

The President had also reiterated at the last Annual General Meeting held in Lagos, that the decision to write off the backlog of unpaid subscriptions was necessitated by the desire to cushion the impact of the pandemic and economic factors on members. Whilst, on the other hand, the Institute needs to plan for the future by having a good grasp of who the bonafide members are.

The new step implies that whoever is not part of the list lacks the locus and the right to practice the marketing profession in Nigeria.
