For my mini-placement I have the privilege of working with Chris May and the public affairs team at Chartered Professional Accountants – Ontario (CPA). It’s an exciting time to be at CPA, in the midst of the amalgamation of the accounting designations. At this point, CPA has already entered into a unification agreement with Certified Management Accountants Ontario (CMA) and is in the process of joining with Certified General Accountants Ontario (CGA). I’m looking forward to attending town halls CPA and CMA are hosting across the province to educate members about the amalgamation process. It’s also been a pleasure sharing an office with Chris. I have my computer and a name plate set up on the other side of his desk and we often take time during the day to talk politics. Overall, it’s been a great experience and a nice way to end the OLIP year before our London trip!
