CISPA organises professional development week for government

The Cayman Islands Society of Professional Accountants is organising a professional development week designed specifically for finance and audit personnel in the government, but also of interest to all public sector managers and private sector accountants.

The event provides an opportunity for public and private sector accountants and auditors to share knowledge and practices. The training will take place from 26 to 30 November at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort.

Working with the Civil Service College and a planning committee made up of senior accounting and auditing officials, topics to be discussed include governance, ethics and values, performance auditing and what is new and challenging within public sector accounting standards. Keynote speakers include Cayman Islands Governor Duncan Taylor, Deputy Governor Franz Manderson, Auditor General Alastair Swarbrick and Chairman of the Central Tenders Committee Nick Freeland.

“I am very excited by the programme topics being offered at this event and encourage all government finance personnel in core government and in the statutory authorities and government companies to register for all or some of the sessions,” Mr. Manderson said. “I would also like to encourage managers in all government entities to consider attending the sessions to hear about what is happening in the government today. This is a terrific way to learn about what you need to know and to hear about what challenges lie ahead.”

Participants will pay $100 per day to attend, CISPA said.

Information about the event, speakers and registration is available by calling David Stock at 244-3190.
