CPA Australia Recognises, Awards 13 Fijians, Two Organisations Here

 

Thirteen individuals and two organisations have been recognised by the Certified Practicing Accountants (CPA) Australia.

The graduation ceremony was a part of the CPA Australia-Fiji Branch 2016 Congress held the past week.

Amongst those recognised was Vodafone Fiji chief executive, Pradeep Lal and CPA Australia-Fiji Branch President, Shaneel Nandan.

Mr Lal was awarded the status of a fellow which is the highest level of membership in CPA and only a select few in Fiji have this status.

FCPA is CPA Australia’s highest appellation – it is a sign of considerable experience, knowledge, and professional standing.

These long-standing members, are the cornerstone of CPA Australia’s membership body and a credit to the accounting profession.

Mr Lal was therefore recognised by CPA Australia for his knowledge, experience and contribution to the profession.

Meanwhile, Mr Nandan was recognised for achieving 10 years of membership with CPA Australia.

To mark this milestone, he was presented with a unique service pin which is crafted especially for CPA Australia members.

CPA Australia President and chairman of the board, Graeme Wade, said Mr Nandan, as a member of CPA Australia, had made a difference.

“Through your ongoing education and knowledge exchange, your development of professional networks or your advocacy of standards and regulations, you have contributed to the accounting profession,” he said.

“You continue to provide strategic leadership, innovation, vision and exemplary technical skills to the organisation in which you work.

“CPA Australia owes its strong reputation as a leader in finance, accounting and business to the support of members like you.”

 

Certificate of excellence

Meanwhile, Avindra Nand, was given a special award for having achieved more than five high distinctions in his CPA Certificate.

Mr Nand is the Assistant manager in Audit and Assurance at the PricewaterhouseCoopers and has been working there for almost six years now.

Therefore, in addition to his CPA Certificate, he also received a Certificate of Excellence.

Recognised Employer Partner

The CPA Recognised Employer Programme is one of Asia Pacific’s most prestigious professional development partnerships.

It is a powerful demonstration of an organisation’s commitment to continually developing their employees.

Recognised Employers ensure that individuals development needs are aligned with business strategy and they understand that the most important element of their organisational success if their people.

ANZ Fiji and Vodafone Fiji were two new organisations who were noted to have demonstrated this and were given the Recognised Employer Partner Certificate.

 

Other CPAs

Meanwhile, 10 other individuals have also advanced to the status of Certified Practicing Accountants.

In order to gain this designation, these members have undertaken and passed the CPA Programme as well as having at least three years relevant professional experience.

In addition, these members have now made commitment to undertake continuing professional development.
