ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

There are many ways that you can get involved with ACCA and make the most of your membership. In this section you will find everything you need to know about being an ACCA member. This includes information about the sector-specific networks and regional panels.

Support for members is provided by 39 regional members' networks and six sector specific networks. Enrolment in all of these is free. New members are automatically enrolled in their local regional network and the sector specific network relevant to the business sector in which they work, unless they specify otherwise.

For information on your local regional members' network please select from the following list:


Become a Panel Member

Inspire. Encourage. Support. Are you up for the challenge?

By becoming a panel member, you can help shape how ACCA provides services to its members. If you are elected, you will attend networking events and meetings, chair lectures, contribute to discussions about important new issues, develop regional activity and embrace this central role as an ACCA ambassador.

Your voice counts, and you can really be heard as a panel member with ACCA.

Being a panel member requires dedication and hard work, but it gives you the opportunity to steer services to members in your network. This may even be the start of your ACCA career with the opportunity to progress onto other groups and committees including International Assembly, ACCA Council and maybe even the ACCA Presidency.  

To get a better idea of the activities of the panels please see 'The Network' in Related Documents on the left hand side of this page. 

If you are interested in nominating yourself as a panel member please see the nominations form and the standing orders in Related Documents on the left hand side of this page and submit the form to by 20 April 2014.

Please be prepared to write a statement as to why members should vote for you, written in the 3rd person and a recent photograph, as this may be required if the network enters an election.

Background and guidance notes

Each of the 39 regional members' network panel comprises of up to nine members, meets four times a year and is supported by a member networks manager.

Panel members are elected for a term of three years subject to the retirement in rotation rules, where one third of the panel must stand down or stand for re-election each year. A panel member may serve for a maximum continuous term of nine years.
