Governance structure 


The Certified Public Accountants Association (CPAA) is a not-for-profit membership organisation.

We aim to provide a professional association for UK based small accountancy practitioners and those working within small accountancy practices.  

A Board of Trustees govern the Association, primarily consisting of practising members and the Company Secretary/Operations Manager. This group typically meets once a quarter, or more frequently if needed. They are responsible for agreeing major strategic decisions and for scrutinising the activities of the organisation.

A group comprising the Chairman, Deputy, and Company Secretary/Operations Manager form the Management Team regularly meets to help the Board develop its strategic vision and ensure this is implemented. On a day-to-day basis, the Company Secretary/Operations Manager is responsible for the running of the Association, with a team of dedicated staff.

The CPAA is a company limited by guarantee incorporated in England and Wales with company number 03448159
