The 93 new members 


The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Sri Lanka recently held its new member ceremony at the Oak Room, Cinnamon Grand, to celebrate the achievement of 93 new ACCA members, who have attained the membership milestone during the last year.

The ACCA membership is considered today as one that provides access to what is widely regarded as the profession’s most comprehensive range of career and professional development resources, including accounting and auditing standards, technical updates, online and face-to-face learning opportunities, and further qualifications.

ACCA Sri Lanka Member Network Panel Chairman Adrian Perera, welcomed the new members to the ACCA fraternity and said that they will now become a part of the vibrant global ACCA community, which consists of more than 200,000 members in 183 countries. 

ACCA Global Immediate Past President Brian McEnery, the keynote speaker at the event, highlighted the important role that professional accountants will play in the future and cited some of his own experiences in how the ACCA qualification and membership had opened up many career opportunities for him. He further showcased the forward-thinking approach of ACCA and added that this greatly contributed as to why employers across the globe accepted and valued the qualification.
