The CPABC Surrey/Langley/North Delta Chapter hosted the annual Member Engagement Tour (MET) event at the Northview Golf and Country Club on November 28.
Approximately 140 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 Jamie Midgley, FCPA, FCA, Executive Vice President, Regulation & Registrar, and Kerri Wilcox, Vice President, External Affairs & Communications.
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.

Among them were Terry Fearn, CPA, CA, Ron McGregor, CPA, CGA, Hugh Rebiffe, CPA, CMA, and Philip Snobelen, CPA, CA, all of whom marked 50 years of membership and Ivor Richardson, CPA, CGA who celebrated 60 years of membership.
