The role of the company secretary should not be looked at as merely fulfilling administrative secretarial duties. Despite the name, the role is not a clerical or secretarial one in the usual sense. The company secretary keeps board members informed of their legal responsibilities. It is true that a company secretary does not take part in the management of the company as this is the responsibility of the Directors, but nowadays the role of company secretary is being increasingly considered as that of a special advisor to the board.
