With District Society AGMs just around the corner, this is a great time to find out more about your local member group and to get involved with your committee. We spoke to some members who’ve already taken that step - and explored the many ways that they – and their fellow members – have benefited from their involvement
The North West Society of Chartered Accountants was formed in 1965, having previously been the North Lancashire Branch of the Manchester Society of Chartered Accountants. The society supports over 1,760 members in the Lancashire & South Lakeland area. In March 2017 the society changed its name to 'ICAEW Chartered Accountants Lancashire and South Lakeland’ and while the name has changed, the aims of the society remain the same and we continue to strive to improve on what was started 50 years ago.
ICAEW Chartered Accountants Lancashire & South Lakeland plays a key role in the training and development of chartered accountants, offering excellent technical and soft skills courses.
We have strong links with other professional organisations in the area. We also act as a link between ICAEW in Moorgate Place and members in the district. We are always keen to hear from members who wish to become more involved with our work.
The society is made up of Office Holders: a President, supported by a Deputy President, Honorary Treasurer, Honorary Secretary and other members of the main committee. The Office Holders and members of the committee are ICAEW members who undertake their role in a voluntary capacity to support their membership body.
