About us

Our primary aim is to bring together trainee Chartered Accountants across the city to enhance their networking opportunities. This is primarily through the organisation of social and sporting events throughout the year with our Fall Ball and Annual Dinner bringing over 300 people together in one room!

As we continue to develop our society we hope to bring more development opportunities to our members through workshops held with our sponsors.

Elections are held annually to ensure an upward flow from the student body to the Executive Committee, which is the governing board of the society. There are a variety of roles including Chair, Treasury and Secretary to our event and sponsorship reps. We are always looking for new representatives on the Committee and if you would like to get involved or just get some more information about what we do contact Louise Hollington
