Our association is a collective of amazing people striving to build and unite all indigenes of Amaigbo!
Concerned Amaigbo Sons and Daughters (otherwise known as CASD) is an association of indigenes of the ancient town of Amaigbo in Nwangele Local Government Area of Imo State.
As the name implies, the association is open to all sons and daughters of Amaigbo.
Being the brainchild of Dr Johnbosco Nkpadobi, CASD actually came into existence on 18th October 2010 as an online association to unite young people of Amaigbo as well as give them a sense of responsibility towards their ancient homeland.
The association was tremendously embraced and churned out exciting programmes on weekly, monthly and annual basis.
The activities of the association became so ideal and appealing that the adult community (older persons) complained of exclusion and signalled interest to be part of the group.
This gave rise to opening the association to all indigenes of Amaigbo irrespective of age or status.
In course of our convocation which started as a whisper, we have seen the depth of love, the height of greatness, and the indomitable spirit of sons and daughters of Amaigbo.
The Admin duo of Mr Stephen Igbokwe and Dr Chinedum Titus Nwosu have been meticulous in approving members of this association.
As years passed and in the course of our growth, there arose the need to identify members based on their various locations and places of residence.
It was at this point that the founders initiated the physical group into branches.
From this point, activities that were hitherto online, were implemented physically.
We kept growing in leaps and bounds and stamped a global presence.
With the guidance of our legal consultants, CASD was officially registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on June 24 2021 (RN 160666).
Apart from the registration of CASD at the CAC, the association was also duly registered as a bona fide group under the Amaigbo Town Union (ATU) and is represented at all ATU Annual General Meetings.
Currently, there are over 6000 members of the association both online and physical members with branches in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Onitsha, Aba, Owerri, Amaigbo (Home), CASD Family (for members from other areas of Nigeria), CASD National and International/Diaspora.
In addition to these branches, there are committees that are primarily mandated to implement the activities of the association.
Some of these committees are AGM, Education, Peace Walk, Hospital/Health, Sports and Vocational Skills etc.
