On October 25, 2019, the CPABC Fraser Valley Chapter hosted the annual Member Engagement Tour (MET) event in Abbotsford.
Over 75 CPAs were in attendance to learn about the latest labour market research for accountants, connect with the other CPA and celebrate member milestones.
The MET presentation was delivered by Lori Mathison FCPA, FCGA, CPABC’s CEO and president, and Amy Lam FCPA FCA, CPABC’s Executive Vice President corporate services and CFO. The presenters provided an update on the CPABC and BC government study examining the labour market and changing market expectations and the skills needed to succeed now and in the future. They also discussed the impact of technology on the accounting profession and the progress being made on the CPA Canada Foresight project.
