The four objectives of the committee

  • To provide educational, professional and social opportunities to members across the province
  • To enable our members to engage in charitable activities.
  • To assist in promoting the Chartered Accountant brand.
  • To represent members to the Chartered Accountants Ireland.

It is pleasing to see that we have made a lot of progress in meeting the first two objectives in recent years.  Our high profile business lunches, seminars and Health and Wellbeing evenings provide great networking and educational opportunities for our members at economic prices.  Events such as our highly popular Charity Ball and Christmas lunch, sell out regularly and raise significant amounts for charity, in line with our second objective.  We also run two golf events annually.

Other successes include our annual Published Accounts Awards, the premier forum for recognition of excellence in financial reporting on this island. 

As part of our continued efforts to encourage third level students to recognize the Chartered Accountant brand, we sponsor annual competitions for business students in DCU, UCD and the Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown and Athlone.  We propose to extend the number of colleges with which we are involved.

In order to meet our fourth objective, the Chairman attends the Chartered Accountants Council meetings throughout the year as the Chartered Accountants Leinster Society representative.  Additionally, the Vice Chairman, attends the Chartered Accountants Member Services meetings.  This allows us to partake in the discussions about issues that relate to our members, to suggest changes, to learn about future developments and to raise any concerns.

In light of the current economy, we will continue to seek appropriate sponsorship for our events in order to ensure the events stay cost-effective.

Feedback from you

We welcome your views in respect of any issues that you believe should be raised at Council meetings and your ideas about new events, seminars or venues. Additionally, if you would like to get involved in any of the activities, are interested in sponsoring our events, donating prizes or working with us to run an event in your locality, we would be delighted to hear from you.
