The Centre for Accounting and Industry Partnerships extends its warmest appreciation and thanks to the major sponsors of the 2019 Australian Accounting Hall of Fame Dinner and Awards Ceremony for their support and assistance.
CPA Australia is one of the world's largest accounting bodies with a global membership of more than 163,750 members (as at 31 December 2017) working in 125 countries and regions around the world. Our members work in diverse roles across public practice, commerce, not-for-profit industry, government and academia, throughout Australia and internationally. Over 25,000 work in senior leadership positions.
CPA Australia’s members are distinguished by their degree qualifications and the additional education they undertake post-graduation. The quality of current and future members depends on the quality and accessibility of their educational pathways. The skills and qualifications acquired through higher education are integral for a successful career grounded in accounting. This is a key reason why CPA Australia values and works in close partnership in academia: we share a passion for building a solid foundation of professional accounting skills for the leaders of tomorrow.
CPA Australia supports accounting academics in their teaching and research; facilitates their connections with their colleagues, education and business stakeholders; advocates for policy change in the public and professional interest; and engages academics in our activities and events. We work alongside academics to support their students in their studies and careers, and enable their peer networks and connections to future employers. We are advocates for the profession on campuses.
