Re: AGM Day - Live Feed

Fellow members of CPA and CPAmembers.org. The change to CPA will take time, but it can happen. Do not think that the loss at the AGM should be the end to this matter. It does require getting the good people of this organisation to encourage all the members, both young and old to take part, for they ...

Re: ABC - Entry exams and fail rates

Hello Ancor,

I would suggest that you attend the AGM, along with as many of your fellow CPA friends, to voice your opinion to the board about the CPA education system and vote.

Change can only come from the voices of many CPA members.
