Members advancing to CPA or FCPA status, receiving a Certificate of Achievement or Certificate of Excellence, or celebrating a significant membership milestone will be invited to attend Member Recognition Ceremonies where we publicly acknowledge your achievements in front of your family, friends and peers.
Member Recognition Ceremonies are held each year in local CPA Australia divisions and branches.
We’ll send you an invitation to attend a Member Recognition Ceremony approximately six weeks before the next scheduled event in your region.
Member Recognition Ceremony dates and times vary by location. Some larger Australian states may run ceremonies twice a year, while others hold events once a year.
We look forward to celebrating your achievement at the next Membership Recognition Ceremony in your area.
If you do not see your region listed, contact your nearest CPA Australia office for information on local Membership Recognition Ceremonies.
Advancing to CPA status
Once you’ve completed the requirements to become a CPA, we will notify you of your advancement of CPA status and invite you to attend a Member Recognition Ceremony.
Please allow up to five business days after completing your final requirement for us to assess your membership details and confirm your advancement.
If you believe you’re eligible to advance but haven’t received an email confirming your CPA status, please contact us.
