In 1971, the annual Alberta Accounting Dinner (previously CA Dinner) began with the objective of uniting students and corporates in a professional dinner setting that facilitates networking. The high corporate to student ratio at this networking event provides a rare opportunity for one-on-one interactions between students and corporate representatives. The dinner has now become one of the most highly demanded accounting events on the U of A campus.
The 2018 Alberta Accounting dinner will be held on Tuesday, September 18th.
For the 47th Annual Alberta Accounting Dinner, our main focus and theme is “Community”. This theme is inspired by the charming way in which the accounting industry has embraced building a strong community and network within the Edmonton area. We are proud to see the great work that firms and accounting professionals have contributed to.
We see a shift in what the industry now considers an ideal accounting professional: an innovative thinker that can leverage their network, experience and ideas to deliver more value to their clients, firm and city. By using the theory and knowledge obtained from the CPA designation, new graduates enter the workforce ready to lead in today's technologically-driven world. With this dinner, we hope to provide a variety of speakers from public practice and industry to help students make their mark on their profession.
