On October 30, 2019, the CPABC Member Engagement Tour (MET) made a stop in beautiful Pitt Meadows, BC.
The local chapter hosted 85 members at the Meadow Garden Golf Club where attendees heard about the latest labour market research for accountants, connected with the other CPA’s and celebrated member milestones.
The MET presentation was delivered by Amy Lam FCPA, FCA, Executive Vice President, Corporate Services and CFO, and Kerri Wilcox, CPABC’s Vice-President External Relations and Communications.
The presenters provided an update on the CPABC and BC government study examining the labour market, changing market expectations and the skills needed to succeed now and into the future. They also discussed the impact of technology on the accounting profession and the progress being made by CPA Canada on the Foresight project.
In addition to the presentation, another highlight of the evening was the recognition of members who were celebrated for attaining important member milestones:
