Meritorious Service Awards

Awarding the exceptional volunteering effort of members who offer their time and skills to give back to their professional body.

This award recognises outstanding contribution to CA ANZ as a professional body such as through service on a Regional Council, a Committee or panel, or representing CA ANZ on joint panels, Government working groups or Inquiries. Three awards are bestowed each year in each region.

  2. Being a ‘fit and proper person’ in the view of Council, including an exemplary membership record in the following areas: 
    o Conduct/discipline 
    o CPD compliance 
    o Financial compliance 
    o Quality Review (if applicable) 
    o Other membership issues that reflect on Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand or profession. 

Age and length of membership do not form part of the criteria. 

Selection process

Up to three recipients are chosen annually by the CA ANZ Council based on recommendations from Regional Councils or CA ANZ management.

Members are not able to submit Meritorious Service Award nominations directly but may discuss potential candidates for consideration with their Regional Council or CA ANZ Regional Manager.
