On 3 August 2022, the Hilton Sydney Ballroom was bustling with 230 new Chartered Accountants and their family and friends celebrating their achievements at our NSW New Member Ceremony.
The ceremony began with a Welcome to Country from Brendan Kerrin, an Arrernte and Barkindji man, followed by an introduction and welcome from our NSW Regional Manager, Renee Feltrin FCA. She acknowledged the hard work, perseverance, courage, and determination it takes to become a Chartered Accountant.
Peter Woodley FCA, NSW Regional Chair then took the time to speak to our new members, expressing the many doors the CA designation will open and how it will allow them to stand among the best in the profession. Peter recognised members’ hard work to obtain this achievement and encouraged them to build upon it, believe in themselves, and follow their ambitions.
"New members have worked hard to obtain this achievement, that they should build upon it, believe in themselves, and follow their ambitions”
Our new CAs also had the pleasure of hearing from CA ANZ President, Kate Boorer FCA who shared her story of how the CA designation helped her achieve professional goals, shape her career and open countless opportunities.
Members then received their Chartered Accountant membership certificates, with Peter Woodley FCA reading the charge. Sarah Hyde CA, one of our new members, accepted the charge on behalf of her peers, acknowledging that the last few years of becoming a CA had been a challenging but rewarding experience.
The night ended with the opportunity for members to network with CA ANZ committee members, chairs, and staff as well as fellow new members and guests.
We congratulate all our new members on becoming Chartered Accountants and look forward to seeing their achievements in the future.
