Association Regional Advisory Panel
Background and Makeup
The Association of International Certified Professional Accountant’s (Association) Nominations Committee will convene in early March and nominate members for its Regional Advisory Panel terms beginning June 2019-May 2020. Each Regional Advisory Panel consists of ~10 seats – 7 of which are nominated and 3 of which are determined by an elections process.
Regional Advisory Panels provide management accounting insights and input on local marketplace trends and offer the perspectives of CIMA and AICPA members in management accounting as well as those of students, employers, and key regional stakeholders. Following the launch of the Association in January 2017, the Regional Advisory Panels now report into the MA Board of the Association and their new terms of reference are posted on cimaglobal.com. Members of the Regional Advisory Panels are members of their founding body (CIMA or the American Institute of CPAs) and are also members of the Association. They also include students studying to become an ACMA and/or CGMA and employers. As a member of CIMA or AICPA and the Association, you are entitled to a vote on the elected positions to the applicable Regional Advisory Panel. These include:
- The Americas
- North Asia
- South East Asia
- United Kingdom
