The South Essex Society of Chartered Accountants was formed as a Branch of the London Society in 1968. It became a District Society in 1974. It covers the county of Essex (excluding the Districts of Braintree, Colchester, Tendring and Uttlesford) and the London Boroughs of Barking, Havering, Newham, Redbridge and Waltham Forest. The society supports the Essentials CPD Programme, which is complemented by those run by its two town groups, Highams Park and Southend-on-Sea. A charity ball and other social events are also included in our programme of events for local members.
