Admissions to associate membership

On admission to associate membership, you join an elite network of  professionals, many operating at the highest levels of Irish business. As an Associate Chartered Accountant, you hold Ireland’s premium accountancy qualification with all the opportunities for advancement, earning potential and sector mobility that it confers. If you want to travel, you will be supported internationally by our network of reciprocal agreements with other Chartered bodies.

Associate membership, as distinct from someone who has just passed their examinations, is crucially important to your future employer. In reality, employers regularly contact the Institute to confirm that a candidate for interview is a full associate member in good standing, so it is important to ensure your professional status is accurate.
