Worcestershire Group of Chartered Accountants
Our primary aim is to provide support for local Chartered Accountants.
This support is offered in the following ways:
- The group organises a lecture programme to help local firms or individuals to meet their CPD requirements.
- We also organise a fantastic Annual Dinner each year hosted by Chartered Accountants and attended by over 150 local professionals and businesses. As part of this, we also designate a charity each year for which we donate money raised at the event.
- We assist with organising the annual BASE event to introduce Chartered Accountancy as a career option to local schools and colleges.
- We organise Young Accountant events to engage trainees and newly-qualified accountants, and to help them create a tight knit community for the future of our local firms.
- The group also organises an annual Christmas Dinner event, which has traditionally been attended by the more senior local accountants and is seen as a key date to catch up with old friends.
We are a member of the Birmingham & West Midlands Society of Chartered Accountants.
Group members will receive updates on the events including any changes to the arrangements or ticket news.
