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 runs a comprehensive programme of continuing professional development courses, which are complimented by those run by its three town groups, Highams Park, Southend-on-Sea and South West Essex. A charity ball and other social events are also included in our programme of events for local members.
