This programme matches experienced members with early career Chartered Accountants.
As mentors, members of more than ten years and with relevant skills can offer advice, information and guidance to assist another CA's personal and professional development.
Mentees in turn develop a new professional relationship, meeting with their mentor to discuss their goals, career progression and skill development needs.
Mentees must have been a member for less than five years to be eligible for the programme. Mentor Exchange is run annually and is designed to run for six months with any ongoing relationship left up to the participants.
The programme is currently available in Adelaide, Auckland, Brisbane, Christchurch, Hamilton, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, London, Melbourne, Perth, Singapore, Sydney and Wellington.

These teams provide advice on the needs and preferences of members in their local area. Each team requires up to eight members.

These groups provide support to members and, through their Councillors, provide advice to the Chartered Accountants ANZ Council.

Most SIGs and Discussion Group meetings qualify for CPD hours.
SIGs are organised regionally in New Zealand while in Australia Discussion Groups may be organised by your state office or directly by members for members.
Join our Member Research Surveys initiative
Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) is dedicated to meeting the evolving needs of members, and to help achieve this important goal, we are calling for members to join our Member Research Surveys initiative.
Participants will be able to share their views, have their voices heard, and provide deeper insights into the challenges Chartered Accountants face. The panel is an opportunity to provide feedback to CA ANZ, with the resulting insights allowing CA ANZ to better support our members well into the future.
