Māori Accounting

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

We support Māori to make a difference in their whānau, hapū, iwi and communities.

We embrace Māori values as a way for our members and our organisation to enhance our benefit to business and community.

There are 4 key focus areas for the CA ANZ Māori Sector:

Upcoming events

In association with Ngā Kaitatau Māori o Aotearoa (NKMoA, National Māori Accountant’s Network), Tutira Mai NZ and Reo Whairawa Limited, we have a great line up of akoranga (learning) and whanaketanga (development) options for 2022.

CA ANZ in partnership with Tutira Mai NZ - Tikanga for Business Professionals

A (wānanga) series designed to give you the confidence and knowledge on how to engage and conduct yourself when meeting or working with Māori. You will have the chance to learn the importance of te reo Māori, pronunciation and some key phrases when working in a Māori business environment, Te Tiriti o Waitangi in the Workplace.  No prior knowledge or fluency needed. There will be 3 different start dates to choose from, and sessions will run over 8 weeks – on the same day and time.

We recommend colleagues to undertake this learning together and are providing the same price for members and non-members to encourage all team members to join in.
