The Chartered Institute of Administration (CIA) in Nigeria
The Chartered Institute of Administration is a professional and examining body established in 1987 and Chartered by Federal Government Act No.103 of 1992 - Now an Act of the National Assembly, Cap C7 Laws of The Federation of Nigeria, 2004. Also visit www.nigeria-law.org. The Act empowers the institute to, among other things; regulate the Standard and practice of Administration in Nigeria within a professional membership framework. Membership of the institute is strictly by examination and proof of practical experience.
The need for effective administration and thereby the creation of wealth and employment is universally recognized. We are a developing nation with vast economic resources and unless we have efficient administrators in the management of the various sectors of the economy, we shall not only fail to prosper as a country but our whole economic survival will be in jeopardy.

The institute has been able to chart a professional pathway that resolves a lot of academic conflicts and yet gives the graduates and members professional leverage to be the best and interact positively with the business frontiers of the nation and otherwise.
