Power of One

ICAS are thought leaders with a good ethical stance which is really important in today’s world.

Of all ICAS’s values, ethics is the most deeply embedded – the organisation’s motto is “Quaere Verum” or “Seek the truth”. Last year, the Power of One initiative was launched to place ethical leadership at the heart of CAs’ professional responsibilities.

The Power of One is setting the standard for the advancement and application of ethics. It recognises the power of every individual CA “The power of one” to influence those around them and supports them throughout their careers.


There is great access to great influencers and great mentors through your career at all levels.

The influence of CAs is felt throughout the business world, at every level. ICAS members are in a unique position to be able to access this powerful network – informally and through exclusive structured mentoring schemes.

CAs Career Mentoring is the only global virtual career mentoring programme in the UK, and it’s only available to ICAS members.

Professional Development

We are helping each other through coaching and mentoring. ICAS is a pro-active member-focused institute that supports its members.

ICAS’s vision is to help all members attain and maintain their professional competence, a proposition that is clearly much more than offering a few courses.
