Go-ahead for ICAEW global city groups
Building on its close ties with Australia, the ICAEW has given the go-ahead to launch a city group in Sydney, an idea that could be copied around the world.
The aim of the Global City Groups is to develop contacts with overseas members of the institute, raising its profile in the international arena.
Currently, the institute has more than 2,000 members in Australia, the bulk of which are based around Sydney.
The Sydney group will be officially launched in February next year, after which a decision will be taken on rolling out the idea to other countries.
The go-ahead for the city groups was given at a meeting of the institute’s council this morning (Wednesday). Council members endorsed clearence for the project already given by the council’s executive.
