Welcome from the Chapter Chair

Cecil Stoochnoff, CPA, CMA

As chapter chair, I’m very excited to introduce you to the Kootenay East Chapter officers for the coming year.  I will be joined by:

Claudia Goodwin, CPA, CA (Vice Chair)

Elaine Eccleston, CPA, FCMA (Treasurer)

Alan Redding, CPA, CGA (Secretary)

This chapter belongs to all CPABC members, students and candidates in our region and we welcome your involvement.  If you have an idea for an event or are interested in volunteering, please contact any of us.  You can email: KootenayEChapter@bccpa.ca.

Check out our blog for upcoming events which include:

  • Thursday November 13 – Provincial Member Engagement Tour luncheon in Cranbrook (tentative – venue to be announced).   Come out and listen to an update on national and provincial issues impacting the CPA profession presented by Richard Rees CPA FCA, CEO of CPABC and one of our provincial board chairs.

The 15 CPABC chapters provide a local presence for the profession while connecting and engaging with members, students and candidates throughout the province.  Like their predecessor CMABC and CGA-BC chapters and ICABC associations, the CPABC chapters will undertake a broad range of activities in their local communities.

The chapters will play a key role in building pride in our unifying profession and developing a strong professional culture.  The mandate of the CPABC chapters include:

  • serving as an important link with the professional body
  • networking
  • professional and personal development
  • local community involvement
  • mentorship and recruitment

To keep up to date on these and other chapter events, we invite you to check our blog regularly.
