The guiding principle in establishing the membership categories is for the Association to be all inclusive by encouraging all government employees working in the public finance space to join the Association, irrespective of their qualifications and experience. One of the key tenets of the Association is to up-skill and develop all the people (human capital) working in this profession, thus all of them must be accommodated into the membership structure.
There is a comparative table of other Accounting Institutions for guidance on the last page. Applicants have to apply for admission to a specific membership category based on the qualification criteria set for each of the categories.
This is the entry-level category for members who are just joining the profession or have been in employment for a while with no more than a Diploma and less than 3 years’ experience. Any staff working in the public finance space who does not qualify for any of the higher categories can join as a technician and work their way up the ladder.
The Honorary Membership designation will be awarded by the Council at its discretion to outstanding individuals who are not necessarily Accountants or financial management experts but have made significant contributions to the public service or community in general and have impacted or contributed to the public financial management.
Applicants with a Diploma with not less than 3 years’ work experience, or those graduating from universities with a degree in Accounting or have taken up accounting courses will join in as Associate Members.
A senior member will have acquired all the academic and professional qualifications required for the Member category and have working experience of not less than 5 years.
Applicants with a degree or professional qualification with not less than two years’ experience after graduating/ award of CPA.
