  • Raises awareness of the issues, challenges, and opportunities facing Alberta CPAs;
  • Sets the CPA Alberta strategic direction; and
  • Protects the integrity of the profession, including ensuring the public interest is protected.

More specifically, the Board provides leadership and oversight to the organization’s mission, vision, operating principles, strategic plan, and annual operating plan, in conjunction with the Chief Executive Officer.
