The CFS experience

When thinking about your professional future, how do you feel? Excited, curious, confused, anxious? All the above?

Chartered for Success (formerly Chartered for Finance) was designed to inspire future CPAs, regardless of their confidence in a career path, because the CPA designation is your passport to a world of opportunity, in any industry. At the CFS conference, meet CPAs from diverse backgrounds and industries and discover how to take your dreams further.

Not only will you get to hear from successful CPAs, you'll also meet like-minded students on a similar journey. At the end, you'll leave with a greater sense of purpose and direction about your future, having grown your professional network and gained unique insights into one of the best designations in the world.


This two-day conference is jam-packed with opportunities including workshops covering both technical and human skills, spotlight interviews with CPAs and dynamic panel discussions. You'll get to meet with CPA Dreamers and find out how the designation has impacted their careers, as well as take part in live debates, interactive games, prizes and more.
