ICAEW relaunches practice-focused group

Practice Centre formed to replace the Practice Advisory Board

A NEW practice-focused group has been created at the ICAEW.

Provisionally known as the Practice Centre, it replaces the institute’s Practice Advisory Board.

Discussions about how best the institute could represent practices has been ongoing for several months.

Society of Professional Accountants chairman Peter Mitchell welcomed the appointment of vice chairman Howard Gross to chair the new body.

“The primary objective of the Practice Centre is to support and guide those in practice by communicating members’ needs and concerns. We are confident that, with Howard at the helm, noticeable improvements will soon be evident,” said Mitchell in a notice to SPA members.

The centre will be run by a 15-strong committee during its first year.

Gill Sykes, ICAEW’s head of practice services, said: “Against the backdrop of the ever more complex and changing environment in which our firms operate, our practice committee will help us understand the challenges facing our diverse practice sector.

“ICAEW is committed to the further development of our premium quality services, qualifications and representation in support of practice and the expertise within the practice committee will be invaluable in helping us deliver this.”
