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.
