ACCA UK and Generation CFO have unveiled a new, formal agreement that aims to see the organisations work collaboratively to “support each other’s members in their roles as finance professionals”.
According to ACCA, the partnership formalises their existing relationship that began in May, with the launch of a virtual summit with Accountex and Practice Ignition.
The two-day event attracted over 15,000 registrations and generated £45,000 in donations for the NHS.
The new agreement will provide members with access to each organisation’s thought leadership, “top-level” contacts and events, and connect members as part of a “growing community of finance professionals”.
Claire Bennison, head of ACCA UK, said: “Generation CFO brings together the new world of digital and the new class of modern accounting and finance into one collaborative group.
“In these challenging times and beyond, the opportunity to build our connections and community is all the more important, so we’re delighted to be working with them through this MOU and look forward to our future collaborations together.”
Chris Argent, founder of Generation CFO, said: “In the coming months, we’ll be delivering a plan of activities to help us all to share insights and new ideas. We are also developing an award, so watch this space for more information about this project which will champion and recognise the exceptional work that finance professionals are doing at this time.
“We’re thrilled to be cementing our relationship with ACCA UK, connecting UK members with our community of 70,000 people. Both our memberships will benefit greatly.”
