(CNS Business): The Cayman Islands Society of Professional Accountants will be honouring 13 Caymanian accountants at its fifth annual Gala at the Ritz-Carlton on Saturday, 6 October. The group being honoured this year includes seven newly qualified CPAs and five graduates with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. “The path to becoming a qualified accountant is not an easy one,” said Jennifer Collins of CISPA’s Membership Development Committee. “It takes a lot of dedication to finish a degree and then go onto complete a professional qualification like a CPA or a CA. By welcoming new accountants into the profession with this Gala, we want to celebrate them as they start this next step into their careers.”
The officers and council members of CISPA believe it is important to show their appreciation for these students’ efforts and dedication.
CISPA President James George explained that the event will also allow CISPA to highlight the strength of the accounting profession in the Cayman Islands, which is vital to the continued success and growth of Cayman’s financial services industry and infrastructure.
“The CISPA Gala allows the community to come together to celebrate and recognise the achievements of these young Caymanians who have clearly spent many hours in obtaining their undergraduate degree or professional qualification,” said George.
Kadi Merren, who was recognised at the Gala in 2011 for achieving her CPA qualification, said, “I think it’s incredible that CISPA recognises people that have worked hard for their qualification. It’s definitely a very exciting night and I really appreciate that CISPA holds this event.”
CISPA is a not-for-profit organisation that regulates and promotes the accounting profession in the Cayman Islands. To learn more about CISPA visit, www.cispa.ky
