The Africa Advisory Council (AAC) was formed and launched by Scott Atkins (INSOL President) at the INSOL London conference in June 2022.
The aim and function of the Africa Advisory Council (AAC) is to enhance and encourage active and ongoing interaction between Member Associations in the African region, fostering a strong sense of member engagement and collaboration. We further intend to assist and encourage the formation of new Member Associations in those jurisdictions that have very little active involvement at an organization level.
The AAC will be arranging interactive engagements with members of African Member Associations and will use the Webinar virtual platform to bring together members across borders to discuss restructuring and insolvency issues that concern members in practice.
In addition, the AAC intends to provide INSOL's support to African Member Organizations to - provide comprehensive education and training opportunities to practitioners and stakeholders in order to enhance their knowledge and skills.
Strengthen the ties between universities, students, academics, and non-government agencies in the region, facilitating productive collaboration and knowledge exchange.
Support capacity development within the applicable insolvency and restructuring Regulatory Departments in each region to improve the regulatory environment at all levels.
Advance and facilitate insolvency and restructuring systems within the African region, prioritizing the seamless flow of information and best practice, thereby empowering all pertinent stakeholders with the necessary knowledge and resources to successfully navigate these procedures into the future.
