Ghana Management Committee

Representation and Advocacy

Our international management committees play a crucial role in overseeing and advancing AIA’s standing in the accounting profession in their jurisdictions.

The Ghana Branch was formed on 20 September 2001.

The committee acts as a voice for our members in their region. It advocates for their interests, ensuring their concerns, needs, and perspectives are considered in policymaking, regulatory changes, and industry developments.

They work to establish and maintain relationships with governmental bodies and local professional organisations to further recognition of the AIA Professional Qualification and the reputation of the Association.

The committee provides expertise and guidance to AIA on local technical consultations and regulatory developments, staying updated on technical changes and developments in the accounting landscape. They also establish and maintain connections with national professional bodies, building relationships and creating opportunities for knowledge sharing and best practice.

Education and Networking

The international management committees are also key in providing additional services and support to AIA members in their countries.

The committee contributes to the Association’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes, ensuring our members have access to high-quality educational resources and opportunities for skill and knowledge enhancement throughout their careers.

They also forge relationships with local educational institutions, creating opportunities for members to enhance their professional qualifications and facilitating pathways for aspiring professionals to enter the field.

The committee also perform the vital function of enabling connections among members, creating a peer network that allows professionals to exchange ideas, share best practices, and collaborate.

Organising social events fosters camaraderie among members, promotes networking in a more informal setting, and strengthens our professional community by creating spaces for social interaction and relationship building.
