ICPAU Regional Members Network Executives

Communications Officer, ICPAU

Regional Members Network Executives of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Uganda (ICPAU) convened on 30 April 2024 at Hotel Africana to share ideas on how to grow the accountancy profession and impact the communities.

The accountants reminded themselves of who they are, how they can strengthen the profession, enhance the Institute’s visibility, and how they can create impact in their communities.

While speaking to the Executives, CPA Derick Nkajja, ICPAU Secretary/CEO reminded them about their most important roles as members of ICPAU.

“We must use our Regional Members Networks to promote member value such as personal and professional growth, support for each other as well as the numerous social benefits of belonging to a fraternity,” remarked CPA Nkajja.

This is the first time Regional Members Network Executives are coming together since the recently concluded elections within their respective networks. Each region consists of at least 5 executive members, as prescribed by the constitution.

CPA Ronald Mutumba, ICPAU Vice President emphasised the importance of belonging to a network and urged the executives to utilise the available resources for growth of the different associations and the Institute as a whole.

“Work hard to transform the communities and neighbourhoods where you dwell, by ensuring that your presence is felt within the spaces that you occupy. Engage with your local communities through fundraisings and various forms of Corporate Social Responsibility,” noted CPA Mutumba.

The speakers further emphasised the need for accountants to be thought leaders, participating in national and international dialogues on behalf of the profession. This will enable them to achieve the main focus of the new strategic plan, We Create Impact.

The meeting had representatives from various Regional Members Networks including Lango, Ankole, Acholi, West Nile, Mid–Eastern and Central.

An ICPAU Regional Members Network is a formal association of members of the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Uganda who work, reside or hail from a region as registered with ICPAU. Regional Members Networks were introduced by ICPAU to improve member engagement by acting as a communication link between the Institute and its members. Currently, there are 12 Regional Members Networks. Members of ICPAU are eligible to join the networks. To join an ICPAU Regional Members Network, please log into your ICPAU portal account.
