The Certified Institute of Cooperatives and Social Enterprise Management (CICOSEMA), “The Institute”, is a professional organisation, established under the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and duly registered by the Corporate Affairs Commission!

It provides training and support to Cooperative Societies, Civil Society Organisations (CSO) and other Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO), their managers and members, on issues that are of considerable concern on operational and administrative best practices in the achievement of their set objectives, challenges of compliance with government regulations and policies, etc.

The Institute does not intend to, and should not be misconstrued as established to, like a government agency, regulate and/or impugn on the activities and operations of these organization, but to work with them, and for them, to properly render support services that will help in the achievement of their set objectives and also guide them in areas that places responsibilities on them, to offer protection to them and their members. (Please, go further to read up the objectives of The Institute for a clear cut and explicit understanding of its objectives.) It is set up as a coordinating and regulatory body for its professional members and practitioners within the 3rd Sector, for the sustainability of high ethical responsibilities, behavioural practices and policy directions. By these, appropriate channels of control are synchronised for standardised corporate practices, good governance and accountability.

CICOSEMA’s objectives are elaborately pursued by, respectively, promoting standardized professional training through properly articulated curricula and administering professional exams on interested persons who join The Institute to test their proper understanding of what it takes to professionally run these organisations, including access to affordable funding of their dreams, and such related matters, records keeping, filing of returns with the relevant authorities, writing minutes of meetings and conducting Annual General Meetings, Extraordinary General Meetings and other statutory meetings, as required by law.
