Chartered Accountants' Benevolent Association appoints three ambassadors to promote its work at accounting events

THE CHARTERED Accountants’ Benevolent Association has appointed three “ambassadors” to help accountants with financial, health and emotional problems.

The ambassadors are Patrick St Leger, who is a support volunteer at CABA; Andrew Campbell-Hart, a CABA debt volunteer; and Carol McLachlan, who also works as a CABA trainer.

The ambassadors, who all come from an accountancy background, are part of a move to make CABA as accessible as possible to chartered accountants. They will attend regional events across the country.

Karen Handcock, volunteers co-ordinator at CABA, said: “It is impossible for CABA to have representatives on the ground at every conference and meeting that we would like to attend, especially in the far flung corners of the country.”

“However, [our ambassadors will be] able to show a human presence at more places where chartered accountants and their dependants are likely to be present and offer help and advice on a group or one-to-one basis.”

CABA was formed in 1886. It supports current and former members of the ICAEW and their dependent family members.
