   active part in the ICAEW and in representing its members across the Liverpool City Region, as we are now known and North Wales, and maintaining its traditional links with The Isle of Man Society.
There continue to be active Branches and Town Groups in Southport,
Chester and North Wales.
Members of the current Committee
are present at the Council of the ICAEW,
with Brian Ricketts and Carol McLachlan sitting as our Council Members, and John Nolan who chairs the National Technical Advisory Committee and is a member of both the Technical Strategy Board and the Outstanding Achievements Awards Selection Committee. Each year the Society provides high quality courses under its Learning
and Development Programme, led by
Rob Adams, together with access to other events, and its Annual Dinner is one of the highlights of Liverpool’s business calendar.
The most recent dinner attracted over 350 professionals and guests from near and far, and it is traditionally the best attended by other District Society Presidents. In fact, this dinner was also featured with great affection by our guest speaker Matthew Parris in his Times column.
At the start of our next 150 years, our President is launching an initiative designed to support young trainee Chartered Accountants, mainly from disadvantaged backgrounds, to follow their dreams and create a career in this most rewarding of professions. Styled 150 2 with its basic
premise being that 150 individuals or businesses donate £150, thus creating a fund of £22,500 which will have a life until the 175th anniversary and provide bursaries to many of our next generation.
With Liverpool’s renaissance moving apace, the Society and its members continue to play a vital and proud part in our city’s history, and in the future of the ICAEW.
It will continue to uphold the values
of integrity, honesty, honour and professionalism that underpins our profession and the maintenance of these important standards by its members and those who proudly serve on its Committee will help give great confidence that the achievements and contributions of the last 150 years will long continue.
