The International Federation of Accountants has appointed Sheree Ebanks to its Professional Accounting Organization Development Committee.
The 12-member committee is responsible for identifying and sharing development best practices, providing guidance and facilitating knowledge sharing.
Ebanks, the CEO of the Cayman Islands Institute of Professional Accountants, attended the committee’s first meeting of the year in New York, which focussed on challenges facing the profession including those from changes in technology.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the global conversation on the future of the profession and share CIIPA’s story with other developing PAOs,” Ebanks said. “It is also an excellent opportunity for CIIPA to work in partnership with other international institutes to ensure the profession works toward sustainable development goals, capacity building and strengthening not only other professional organisations, but also working as a liaison to regional bodies.”
She noted that the profession is changing rapidly through the impact of new technologies and increased regulation. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the Cayman Islands to participate with and learn from these international leaders of the profession,” Ebanks said.
