The NiNAS director of Accreditation, Dr. Lawrena Okoro, has been elected as the new chairperson of the AFRAC Marketing and Communication Committee. Dr. Lawrena was unanimously elected during the just concluded 9th AFRAC General Assembly that was held in Mauritius between the 24th and 28th of September, 2018. This goes a long way to establish the representation of NiNAS in the regional accreditation system and by extension in the global accreditation community.
