Strategic update

CA ANZ Chair, Murray Jack, President, Jane Stanton and CEO, Rick Ellis recently updated members on the progress of the strategic initiatives underpinning Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand’s (CA ANZ) transformation strategy.

The organisation’s strategic direction is to proactively shape and strengthen the profession of the future to provide greater benefit to the clients and communities its members serve.

As such, the Board has endorsed the initial development work on the creation of a new online community hub for members and enhancements to the CA Program. Underpinning the overarching strategy is how CA ANZ can increase the value it provides – as a professional body – and improve how its members can engage with each other.

In today’s connected world, it is important that members’ expectations are met for accessing tools, services and information from anywhere, anytime.

Another key focus has been on reforming the way current and future learners enter and progress within the CA Program. CA ANZ are exploring more flexible pathways for members to enter the CA Program while also reviewing the Program’s content and design. This will further embed the relevance of the CA Program for the profession while preserving its pre-eminence and the level of education it delivers.

Also approved by the Board was a re-alignment of the structure of CA ANZ to ensure the organisation has the right capabilities, systems and focus to deliver value to the clients and communities its members serve.

While the transformation progresses, CA ANZ’s key focus remains on continuing to deliver high quality services for its members.
