The Institute for Human Resources Management Practitioners (IHRMP) is appealing for funds from stakeholders towards the construction of an office and Training Complex.

The first phase of the complex, which is under construction behind the Trade Fair Centre at La in Accra, would serve as the permanent location for the Institute.

The first phase involves the construction of an outer structure in which the Institute can start operating. The outer structure would include three lecture halls and offices for IHRMP Executives.

However, the pace of construction has been slow due to inadequate funds.

According to the Executive Director of the Institute, Mr Ebenezer Agbettor, the Institute required more funds to be able to speed up the project and therefore called for an increased contribution from members and support stakeholders including the government and development partners.

“The completion of the outer structure would not only allow us to move permanently from where we are now but also save us a lot of money from paying rent. And once we move in, we would be able to seek additional funds to construct the main complex building,” he added.

Mr Agbettor told ADR Daily in an interview that it was agreed at the Institute’s 2014 Annual General Meeting that members would pay a total of GH₵ 1,500 spread over three years.

“The challenge here is that the bulk of the members have not paid,” he said, explaining that only about 70 out of the 1,200 membership have paid.

“Presently, we are acquiring funds through other means, and we hope that our members would comply with the decision taken and come through with their payments,” he stressed.

Mr Agbettor explained that the construction of the complex is a huge undertaking with financial constraints, “but because of the limited funds available we have decided to construct an outer structure to house IHRMP until such a time that we are financially able to build the complex structure”.

In connection with the building project, a seven-member committee was formed last year to have oversight responsibility for the commencement and completion of the project.

The construction of the outer structure begun on December 11, 2017, and it is expected to be completed in May this year, depending on the availability of funds.
