Volunteering - building collective knowledge

The FSAA is a membership organisation.  While we have professional, employed staff, we draw heavily on our Members’ expertise to accelerate the development of the Association and the program of services.  FSAA organises its Member contribution into two groups – Federal Council whose responsibility it is to provide a long term strategic resource and governance, and Committees that are formed to manage specific issues or address particular activities.

The Association welcomes new ideas and participation from its Members.  If you have any feedback that may help develop the Association or would like to participate in a particular Committee then please contact us.

This site has been created as a resource for Members and as a service to help foster an understanding of the types of issues impacting on accounting professionals in the financial services industry.  The Association conducts many events and training programmes.  We invite you to browse the web site, and feel free to contact us if you require any additional information.
