CA ANZ members for 25 years

Celebrating 25 years

Whilst June is often busy with closing out the financial year, the New South Wales team were busy celebrating various member anniversary milestones, from 25 years to 70 years. The events took place over three weeks to ensure each cohort were able to be celebrated in their own light, and was hosted by our NSW Regional Relationship Manager, Una Cullen and Senior Account Manager for the Corporate Sector, Rosanna La Martina.

Throughout each event, we had the pleasure of hearing from a few members who were selected to speak on behalf of their cohort. Elizabeth Carson FCA who spoke on behalf of the 1998 cohort, spoke about the pathways that the CA designation held. Whilst she began in a Big 4 company, she ended up in education, a pathway she never would have ventured down without the CA designation. John Stewart FCA, spoke about the different journeys his CA led him to, sharing how far technology has come in the last 40 years since he’s been in the industry.

One of the most special events we host each year are those to celebrate our members who have been CAs for 50, 60 and 70 years. Life Member Dennis Robertson FCA and spoke to the cohort and shared his experiences as a CA. Dennis has been involved in the CA community for numerous years in a variety of ways including being on our NSW Chartered Accountants Advisory Group. 

This year we were lucky enough to be joined by John Squires, a 91-year-old CA who has been a member for 70 years. John is a passionate CA who spoke about the history of his career from becoming a CA back in 1953 to now in 2023.   

These events are not only special to celebrate achievements but provide an evening where CAs can catch up with colleagues, sometimes those they have not seen in decades. 

In the last 25 years we have seen many changes within CA ANZ, including our merger from the Institute of Chartered Accountants to Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, but the values our members continue to live by remain the same as they did all those years ago when they first became Chartered Accountants. We are proud to celebrate our members who demonstrate integrity, objectivity, confidentiality, and professional behaviour every day. 

We offer congratulations to all our members celebrating milestone anniversaries this year, whether we were able to celebrate you in person or from afar.
