AIA GHANA BRANCH

Togbe Korku Ganu III (Seth Ebenezer Kwaku Ganu) is a Fellow member of the AIA, a member of the AIA Council and the AIA Ghana Branch Chairman

Seth works tirelessly for AIA and its members in Ghana, securing recognition of the AIA qualification by agreeing a pathway to join the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ghana.

AIA Ghana Branch has negotiated with Educational Authorities in a bid to have the AIA qualification introduced into tertiary institutions. This dedication has resulted in recent approval by the University of Professional Studies, Accra, to run the AIA Professional Accountancy courses forom 2018-19 academic year.

Another institute, the Pentecost University of Ghana, one of the specialist tertiary accountancy training institutions in Ghana, has also agreed to run courses for AIA students in Ghana and these will be introduced in 2018-19.

Seth is now continuing his quest for recognition of the AIA qualification and to forge links with academic institutions in Ghana.

AIA Ghana Branch is dedicated to working hard to represent AIA members and provide individuals with an opportunity to gain a reputable and recognised qualification leading to a successful and rewarding career in accountancy for members in Ghana.

PARTNERSHIPS AND AGREEMENTS

AIA and the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana (ICAG) have agreed a pathway to membership that provides a route for AIA members to join ICAG. This agreement offers members of both AIA and ICAG the opportunity to enjoy the benefits that both organisations can offer, which include increased international recognition and improved professional mobility.

To obtain ICAG membership, AIA members must demonstrate three years' relevant practical work experience in accountancy and finance, provide two referees and attend an induction programme that outlines the professional and ethical expectations of the Ghanaian Institute.

Both organisations require members to adhere to their continuing professional development policies and pay their annual subscription to maintain their membership.
