Our strategic plan is focused on facilitating opportunities that build value for members, their clients and the communities in which they live and work.

Released on 10 October 2019, the 2019 Annual Report details our surplus and our continued voluntary, expanded disclosure within the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand financial report.

2019 Annual Report highlights

This year we saw significant delivery for members, including:

  • a healthy increase in CA Program module enrolments and our membership growing to more than 125,000
  • the launch of our online community hub My CA for members to share, connect, learn and collaborate with each other
  • implementing a programme, CA Catalyst, dedicated to helping members leverage innovation and technology
  • strengthening the connections we have with our members outside Australia and New Zealand
  • introducing more flexible study pathways to attract a more diverse range of candidates
  • our dedicated advocacy work ranging from the financial reforms in Australia to the future of taxation debate in New Zealand
  • successfully showcasing our profession at the 2018 World Congress of Accountants
  • honouring the contribution members have made to the profession by recognising 4 Life Members and 188 Fellows, along with numerous milestone recipients.

After extensive member and employer engagement on our flagship CA Program, the Board has also recently approved a high-level design of a future-focused Program that shapes and supports the capabilities sought by employers while maintaining the pre-eminence of the CA designation.

We plan to transition to this renewed CA Program environment from mid to late 2021 and will keep members informed on the proposed changes as the detail is developed.

To deliver on our promise during amalgamation, we have also focused on updating and streamlining our own structure. We held a member vote to both broaden and strengthen members’ voices in our governance structure and all five resolutions were passed by members.
