Māori Accounting

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) understands the importance of providing support to Māori throughout their accounting career journey.

CA ANZ has enjoyed a strong relationship with Ngā Kaitatau Māori o Aotearoa (NKMoA – National Māori Accountants Network) spanning more than a decade. Through this partnership, CA ANZ and NKMoA share a passion for whanaungatanga (and the strength of your Māori CA membership and making a difference together), mātauranga (your ongoing pursuit of learning, financial literacy, knowledge and growth), and tikanga (at the forefront of all you do). 

CA ANZ and NKMoA established an MOU to describe the overarching objectives of the partnership. These are to:

  • Establish a Māori consultation committee to support and advise CA ANZ on issues relating to Māori business
  • Establish a framework for consultation and collaboration on public advocacy and communications
  • Raise the NKMoA profile among CA ANZ members
  • Encourage more Māori to choose accounting as a career.

We are proud to report that globally, there are now more than 900 Maori Chartered Accountant members and that number is growing. 

Developing and building connections

Supporting our commitment to growing the number of Māori in the accounting profession, Tertia Whitcombe, CA ANZ Māori Sector Manager fosters long-term and meaningful relationships with Iwi (tribes), employers, Chartered Accountants ANZ members and prospective members to increase the number of Māori Chartered Accountants across the globe.

Tikanga and a better you

Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōna te ngahere. Engari, ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga, nōna te ao - For the one who consumes only within their surroundings, that will be their domain. For the one who engages in education, opportunities are boundless.
