30th June 2017
The Institute of Incorporated Public Accountants (IIPA) and The Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Ireland (CPA Ireland) confirm that they have been in discussions on possible models for collaboration between both bodies.
Following a member consultation process within both organisations, and engagement in a due diligence process, the Councils of both organisations have now held separate Extraordinary General Meetings on June 23rd last. At those EGMs members of both bodies voted by the necessary margins to approve resolutions with an approval of a pathway for IIPA members to join CPA Ireland.
Members of Institute of Incorporated Public Accountants voted at the EGM to adopt new Constitutional documents and passing a series of special Resolutions which will, inter alia, facilitate the closer collaboration, admittance and regulation of members of the Institute of Incorporated Public Accountants (IIPA) to the Institute of Certified Public Accountants (CPA Ireland). Over 95% of the Members present in person or by proxy voted in favour of the motions and approving the model for collaboration between both bodies.
This model for collaboration of both bodies and new Constitution will become effective if approved by the Board of the Irish Auditing and Accounting Supervisory Authority (IAASA) at their meeting on 11 July 2017.
Kind personal regards,
John Mc Carrick,
Institute of Incorporated Public Accountants
