Peer-to-Peer Forums

CPA Alberta Peer-to-Peer Forums provide an opportunity for Alberta CPAs and CPA candidates to share their experience and knowledge around a common topic, and help each other tackle issues and challenges they may be facing. The first Peer-to-Peer Forum was recently launched this past March, centered on the theme of innovation and technology.

The forums are held in-person in Calgary and Edmonton, with plans to expand remotely in the near future. Specific topics covered at each forum will be driven by the group's own interests, needs, and discussion. Meetings are anticipated to take place four times a year.

Innovation and Technology Forum

During the Innovation and Technology Forum, participants will discuss topics such as disruptive innovations, innovation strategies, and analytics. Additional subjects may include automation, artificial intelligence, cyber security, and other technology issues to help CPAs drive innovation within their organization.
