The CPA Alberta Board governs the business and affairs of the organization and helps ensure CPA Alberta meets its mandate under the Chartered Professional Accountants Act.
The Board is the bridge between individual members and CPA Alberta, it fulfills its mandate by:
- Ensuring the public is protected
- Representing the interests of Alberta CPAs from across the province and across all sectors

- Setting the CPA Alberta strategic direction
- Representing Alberta CPAs at the national level
More specifically, the Board provides leadership and oversight to the organization’s mission, vision, operating principles, strategic plan, and annual operating plan, in partnership with the Chief Executive Officer.
The CPA Alberta Board consists of 12 members—nine elected CPAs and three public representatives appointed by the Government of Alberta. Voting for open board positions is held annually.
