ACCA and insurance institute team up

Chartered accountancy body announces dual membership option with insurance institute to 'extend and enhance' benefits for both groups

ACCA and the
Chartered Insurance
Institute
have rubber stamped a deal that will allow dual membership in the
two organisations.

ACCA members who join the CII, the professional body for the insurance
industry in the UK, will be able to access regular technical support concerning
insurance and financial services industry related issues, plus regular
networking opportunities from training workshops to on-line learning and
knowledge provision, the institute said.

Clare Minchington, ACCA
managing director – education, learning & development said: ‘Continuous
professional development is very important to us as a membership body and we
work hard to ensure our members are supported in their need to advance their
professional competence requirements.’

Under the terms of the deal ACCA members will still pay a subscription to
gain membership of the CII, but this will be at a reduced price. Minchington
added: ‘It is vital for our members to be up-to-date about the regulatory
environment in which they work, and this agreement with CII will help them in
this goal.’
