PQ Top Up (ICAS)

An exciting new development that allows fully qualified CIPFA members to 'top up' their PQ qualification through the ICAS Pathways route, to become joint members of ICAS and CIPFA, and gain full Chartered Accountant (CA) designation.

Regional forum

A forum for CIPFA members and students in the regions to share ideas, documentation and discuss future plans.

The forum is restricted to CIPFA region members and uses the same login details as the CIPFA website. You will be asked to login if you are not already logged in to the website.

We have produced a guideline document on how to use the forum and some best practice hints and tips to help you get started.

Volunteering in your region

You could help your region to support members and students, in a variety of ways as a regional volunteer. We need the help of willing volunteers and have a broad range of opportunities for any member or student who is interested in getting involved.
