CAPA members, the Board and working committees normally meet in-person 2-3 times per year. However, due to uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions in international travel, it is anticipated that CAPA will continue to organise meetings and activities utilising digital technology and virtual platforms throughout most, if not all, of 2021.
The exact dates and timings of next meetings are discussed at the end of each (previous) meeting. The specific timing is dictated by a range of matters, including governance requirements or when approval, advice or input is required for ongoing initiatives, projects and publications.
As a general guide, we intend to host the following minimum number of virtual meetings, and approximate dates, for all of 2021:
General meetings: 2 i.e. the AGM (July) and EGM (November)
Board: 2-3 (March, May and October)
Governance & Audit Committee: 2 (April and October)
Member Development Committee and Public Sector FM Committee: 2 each (February and August/September)
Audit and Ethics Groups: 2 each (August/September and November/December)
Plans are underway for CAPA to stage a series of webinars commencing from 2021. The webinar program is currently envisaged to cover five streams, namely: (1) Maturity ModelTM, (2) Accounting Technicians, (3) Improving PFM, (4) Audit and (5) Ethics.
Full meeting details will be updated on this website as soon as they are available.
The CAPA Conference, proudly hosted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka), is an important milestone as it is the 20th instalment of a legacy that marked the birth of CAPA. The conference will be held both in-person and to be broadcasted LIVE (accessed via the dedicated CAPA Conference microsite).
Theme‘Heritage: Many businesses, One planet’
The flagship event seeks to take a holistic perspective on how the accountancy profession can play its part today, for a better future. Moving away from purely traditional focus areas of the accountancy profession to encompass the changes affecting our business and environmental landscapes, the conference will explore contemporary conversations, opportunities and challenges presented by our times.
The Asia-Pacific region includes some of the most dynamic and fastest-changing economies. The stage is set for extensive deliberations on what the accountancy profession can and must do, including reforms that must take place, and how we can rebuild trust, embrace ethics and good governance, as well as harness the positives of technology to forge a sustainable future and leave a heritage we can be proud of.
Come join us for an opportunity to share knowledge, network and mingle with like-minded professionals from all over Asia-Pacific.
