CIMA members to vote on ‘the Association’
11 April 2016
CIMA and AICPAs members are to be asked to vote on the plans to join forces to create a new accounting association (the Association). The voting opens on 18 April and runs until 16 June.
CIMA has told members it must evolve to continue advancing the profession, expanding opportunities and keeping its designations at the forefront of market demand.
The institute has stressed it has no plans to move into public accounting and CIMA members will continue to be ACMAs/ FCMAs, and be able to use the CGMA designation.
CIMA has stressed there are no plans to increase student or members subscription fees to support the proposals. The 2015 CIMA syllabus will also be unaffected.
PQ magazine broke the news that CIMA and the AICPA planned to take their relationship to the next level in our December 2015 issue. CIMA MD Andrew Harding said a new association of 600,000 current and next-generation professionals would improve PQs employability and career prospects. “Students will be one of the main beneficiaries of the move,” he claimed.
