Chartered Accountants Student Societies update – January 2019

Jan 03, 2019

A round-up of news and events from the Institute’s student societies around the country.


CASSS continue to have their coffee mornings every three weeks, the next happening on 25 January. The bowling and go-karting from the last update was unfortunately postponed until after Christmas break, so CASSS have this to look forward to this month.

The CASSS Christmas party took place on Friday 8 December with dinner and drinks in the Sligo Park Hotel, which was a fun-filled evening with a great turn out.


CASSU recently held their annual AGM and elected a largely new committee, with Ciara Flanagan elected as the new Chair. The new committee would like to extend their thanks to the previous committee for all the work they put in, particularly Katrina Bingham in her role as Chair.

The new committee have been hard at work putting in early preparations for the Annual Ball in February with tickets on sale now. It’s set to be a big one!

CASSU held their annual Christmas drinks at Belfast Continental Christmas Market in December. Next up, the society will hold their monthly drinks on 18 January to help students get through the long month! 



CASSM would like to congratulate all members who recently enjoyed success in their FAE exams. We positively note the good results recorded across the region. The committee held a hugely enjoyable FAE results night in the Junction, Athlone to celebrate the successes of our members. 

To those who didn’t quite get over the line – don’t lose heart and reach out to your committee for guidance in any area where assistance is needed. 

The final event of the year was the annual 12 pubs of Christmas, held in Athlone on Friday 21 December. This event is a mainstay of the CASSM calendar, and one that all our members thoroughly enjoyed.
CASSM would also like to congratulate our vice-Chair, David McNamara, on his recent engagement. We wish him and his partner all the best in the future.



CASSI have remained quiet since the Annual Conference in November. However, the AGM will be held in February – date TBC. Please keep an eye on emails for more updates.
