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 four key focus areas in the CA ANZ Māori Engagement Strategy:

Ngā Kaitatau Māori o Aotearoa

Ngā Kaitatau Māori o Aotearoa (NKMoA) is the National Māori Accountants Network. NKMoA focuses on increasing the number of Māori in the accounting profession, creating a strong network of Māori accountants, and helping Māori to excel in commerce. Each year, with logistical support from CA ANZ, the organisation holds a Hui-ā-Tau (annual conference).

Māori and Pacific Special Interest Group (SIG)

The CA ANZ Māori and Pacific SIG meets regularly in Te Whanganui-ā-Tara Wellington. All members are welcome to attend the SIG events focused on Māori and Pasifika content including guest speakers, panel discussions and whakawhanaungatanga (making connections).
