Connect with local CPAs: attend an upcoming chapter event!

Chapter events are a great way to establish personal contact with your fellow CPAs. As an Alberta CPA or CPA candidate, you already automatically belong to a local chapter, and are encouraged to become an active participant. Chapters organize their own events, which often include informative presentations and social gatherings, making them ideal for both expanding your networking and learning new skills. Each chapter is independent and guided by an elected board of directors, comprised of local CPAs and CPA candidates.

Below is a list of some upcoming chapter events around Alberta.
