This year has once again reminded us just how complex, connected and fast-changing the world really is. Which is why it's more vital than ever that accounting professionals are prepared to perform today and advance tomorrow.
We're proud of the crucial role the CPA Australia community has played over the last 12 months. You've been trusted to transform businesses and enhance communities. Navigate risks and take on new responsibilities. Throughout it all, we've been your partner for progress. Leveraging our strength, resources and initiatives to help build your skills, connections and support networks.
Together, we've achieved a lot. For those at all stages of their careers, we've delivered improved value and service to help you succeed. From being your voice on policy, an advisor on topical issues, a guide for career development, and a place of community.
Here are some examples of how we provided, and continue to provide, a foundation of support for CPA Australia members and their success.
Community and advocacy
This year we’ve continued to focus and enhance our policy and advocacy activities for the benefit of you, and the communities you serve.
11,000+ registrations for Policy and Advocacy webinars
60+ media releases
To help you understand and respond to the many ongoing – and new – challenges of COVID-19, we continued to provide regular updates on managing the workplace, government grants and business support for SMEs. We also developed new initiatives, like our COVID Chat for Business podcast mini-series, to help interpret and untangle key issues for members and businesses.
Tax Time 2021
From a public interest perspective, we worked to educate the community on their tax obligations and what they need to consider at tax time. To support this, we issued four media releases, covering topics like the gig economy, small business, mum and dad investors and top tips for employees this tax time.
Net Zero commitment
CPA Member Connect
Through 2021, it’s been a place to share experiences and seek support. Popular topics included working from home, government grants and entitlements, employment, and taxation. In June, we even established a dedicated Tax Community to make it easier to search for specific advice and discussion topics.
In 2022 and beyond, we’ll continue to grow the CPA Member Connect community and support member engagement. If you’re not yet part of the platform, make sure you sign up.
