On November 6, 2019, the CPABC Vancouver Chapter hosted the annual Member Engagement Tour (MET) event at the Sutton Place.

Approximately 150 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.

In addition to the presentation, another highlight of the evening was the recognition of members who were celebrated for attaining important member milestones:
