Council members greatly add value to the work of ACCA, through their contributions to debates and through the knowledge and experience they bring to the organisation.
Why stand for election?
Many ACCA members stand for election to ‘put something back’. They are grateful for the opportunities ACCA has given them, and now want to ensure the same – and even better – opportunities remain available for others.
Council membership also offers a rare opportunity to influence the development of the profession as a whole – to help shape the future of accountancy by learning more about the threats and challenges it faces, and working with like-minded individuals to prepare and implement strategic responses.
While its duties may appear to be onerous, service on Council is both challenging and fulfilling. Find out why from some of the current Council members talking about their time on Council, their role in ACCA’s governance and what ACCA means to them. Council is always keen to identify ACCA members with talent and an understanding of good governance who may be interested in standing for election to Council.
