Sub committees

As well as the main committee, the society has four sub-committees as follows:

  • CSR
  • Training, Education & Careers ( incl. CPD )
  • Members’ Services and Communications
  • Chartered Accountants in Business

These sub-committees are chaired by a main committee member and membership is open to any society member who would like to be involved. It is a great way to be involved in activities without having to be on the main committee. It also allows members to be involved in an area that they may have a personal and professional interest in.
