CASSI Update - May 2017

May 02, 2017
The sun is shining and everyone is heading away on their holidays which can only mean one thing – exam time for all Chartered Accountants Ireland students. Fortunately for you, CASSI is here to help.

On Friday 5 May, we will be having the annual CASSI Mystery Tour. This is an inter-regional event and a great last night out before revision.

As we are approaching exam season, we would like to take this opportunity to remind all students that we are here to help and lend support. If you have any feedback or concerns about exams, revision, length of study leave etc., please let us know. If we cannot advise you directly, we will be able to put you in contact with someone who can help. Contact the education officer directly on education@cassi.ie or leave a message on Facebook.

The Institute recently underwent a huge transformation, to modernise and improve the website and all social media pages. CASSI were involved in this process, liaising with the Institute and ensuring students’ needs were met. If you have any issues or concerns about the new website, please let us know.  

Finally, we would like to wish all CAP1 students good luck. Professional exams can be different and daunting at first but your approach should be no different than it always has been: stay calm, eat healthy, get into a good routine and do as many questions as you can. Good Luck

CASSC Update

The CASSC Annual Charity Ball took place on 22 April in the Clayton Hotel, Cork City and held in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. A great time was had by the 100 attendees from the Cork region. Attendees were kept entertained by a live Band (named UV5) followed by a DJ until late, with other surprises on the night including a photo booth, chocolate fountain and an Electric Picnic ticket giveaway.

The final donation tally is still to be confirmed, but over €1,000 will be making its way to the charity thanks to the event. Attendees were kept entertained by the live band UV5 followed by a DJ.

CASSU have had a busy April. They saw the return of the annual CASSU comedy night held at the Empire Music Hall, Belfast on 25 April. The night was a great success, with plenty of food, socialising and laughs. Some of the attendees finished off the evening with a meet and greet with some of the comedy acts.

Keen to fit in as many events as possible before the majority of CAP1 and CAP2 students commenced study leave, CASSU hosted send-off drinks at our usual end-of-the-month venue of Morrissons, Belfast on 28 April.

CASSU are planning a number of exciting events over the summer months, including the annual summer BBQ and taking part in a charity dragon boat regatta. Details will be circulated with members soon.
