Global accountancy body Chartered Accountants Worldwide (CAW) has launched a network member logo on 4 November 2019 to recognise and promote a global family of Chartered Accountants.
Over 750,000 qualified chartered accountants of 14 professional institutes who are the members of CAW will be able to use the new logo in their email signatures, letterheads as well as on their social media and websites, says a press release.
The institutions are ICAEW, ICAS, CAI, SAICA, ISCA, CA ANZ, IAI, CA Sri Lanka, ICAB, ICAN, ICAM and ZiCA.
"The Chartered Accountants Worldwide network member logo allows all chartered accountants who are part of the CAW family to promote the value of their chartered accountancy qualification," said Michael Izza, Chairman of Chartered Accountants Worldwide and CEO of ICAEW.
"It also allows chartered accountants to demonstrate that they are part of a substantial international network. The chartered accountancy network spans the globe with 750,000 members in over 190 countries, it's an opportunity to show that you are not only strong locally but connected globally," he added.
"ICAB members are now connected and recognized by the global family of Chartered Accountants which will certainly elevate their positions at global level," said A F Nesaruddin, president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh (ICAB).
The press release also said that, at the heart of CAW is the desire for all Chartered Accountants to be recognised as trust leaders in business, finance and accountancy around the world.
By displaying the logo, individual members can show they are part of a global network of qualified professionals who share common values and a commitment to the highest technical and ethical standard.
The logo will create international recognition for the quality of the chartered accountancy profession, ensuring that chartered accountants' qualifications stand out in an increasingly competitive market.
