Fellowship is a significant milestone

Achieving fellowship is a significant milestone in a member's professional life and demonstrates to employers that they have extensive experience and made a long-term commitment to professionalism and ethics.

We mark this achievement by automatically issuing a fellowship certificate, which is sealed at a special meeting of ACCA's Council (usually held quarterly).
