About the conference
Known as the cradle of mankind, with some of the oldest humanoid fossils discovered there, it is fitting that Ethiopia will host ACCA’s inaugural members convention in the historical city of Addis Ababa in December 2017.
The convention is themed, ‘The impact of socio-economic trends on the future of finance and business in Africa’ and is based on the premise that the future role and relevance of the practice of accounting in Africa will be impacted by the shifting paradigms of social expectations and economic focus underpinned by rapid digital transformation. Some of Africa’s most illustrious finance and business leaders including the rock star of public speaking – Vusi Thembekwayo who will be delivering the key note address – will lead panel discussions and breakaways sessions such as ‘Ethics in a digital world’, ‘Managing and navigating the new economy’, ‘Leadership – redefining the new order of the profession’ amongst others.
The Africa Members Convention is the landmark African event on the ACCA calendar, bringing together up to 1,000 distinguished ACCA members from all spheres of finance and business, within the public and private sectors, to tap into a wealth of resources, knowhow, inspiration and unparalleled insights.
