APSEA sets up professionals database

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 28 – Kenya’s first database of professionals has been launched by the Association of Professional Societies in East Africa (APSEA).

With over 50,000 registered Kenyan professionals, APSEA Second Vice Chairperson Grace Injene said the database is the first attempt to house individuals from diverse occupations under one roof.

“It’s undoubtedly an exciting project for APSEA since at the touch of a button the public will be able to easily access the architect, gynecologist, lawyer or whatever type of professional they may require at any given time,” she said.

The database will require members to be part of an existing professional association to be eligible, which Injene added will help in verifying professionals’ authenticity.

Apart from giving the public access to a wide range of professionals for ease of vetting, Injene says the database will bring a new level of integrity and ethics to the way the public and private sectors operate.

“Professionalism underpins the Constitution of Kenya and several public office positions shall be held by professionals including those of Cabinet Secretaries, therefore the public needs a database through which they are able to gauge nominees or potential candidates to public office,” she noted.

New applicants can register at www.professinaldatabase.co.ke for a six-month free trial, after which they will be required to pay an annual fee of Sh500.

APSEA is the joint forum and umbrella body of professional associations and societies in Kenya, representing a corporate membership of thirty professional bodies.
