Fellowships

Peer-to-peer recognition of a member’s outstanding career achievements and significant contribution to business, the profession, or the community.

Fellowships honour the significant career achievements and/or contributions of members which may have been to CA ANZ, to the community, to business, or through teaching, research, or writing in the field of accounting.

Members who have been awarded a Fellowship are entitled to use the designation FCA, FACA, or AT (Fellow).

The deadline for 2024 nominations is 6 August.  All nominations are first considered by the local Regional Council and then by the Council of Chartered Accountants ANZ. Fellowships are conferred annually in November or December. There is no cap limit on the number of Fellowships each year. 

We encourage all members to consider nominating their deserving peers for a Fellowship.
