This member is entitled to attend and vote at the general meeting through its duly authorised representative.
Associate Membership is given to organisations which have an interest in the accounting profession and in financial matters, although such organisations may not have been set up at a professional level or, where such organisations, although set up at a professional level, are located outside the CAPA region. This member is entitled to attend the general meeting through its duly authorised representative, but are not entitled to vote thereat or to be counted in the quorum.
Affiliate Membership is given to professional bodies or organisations within and outside the CAPA region and of good standing, enjoying visibility on an international scale and interested in CAPA, its programmes and activities. This member is entitled to attend the general meeting through its duly authorised representative, but are not entitled to vote thereat or to be counted in the quorum.
A CAPA member organisation must be a sponsor for the organisation applying to be a full or associate member of CAPA. Those applying for membership may contact CAPA members directly for sponsorship.
