Proud to be a CA

The pride of the CA qualification comes from the versatility, opportunities and experiences it creates, allowing CAs to achieve remarkable success whilst giving back to society through their careers.

ICAS will be sharing the real and inspiring stories of CAs and their experiences for 2019. Our members should be rightly proud of the 'CA' badge and it should be recognised for its value and meaning.

Join us on our campaign to ditch misconceptions that the CA is just about accountancy, and find out why it has meant so much to so many. Most of all, be Proud to be a CA.
