On November 14 and 15, 2019, the CPABC Upper Vancouver Island Chapter hosted the annual Member Engagement Tour (MET) in Nanaimo at the Nanaimo Golf Course and Campbell River at the Anchor Inn & Suites.

Over 100 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, CEO and President, and Ben Sander FCPA, FCA, CPABC Board Chair.  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.
