Based on feedback from our members, we have altered the FCPA nomination process to make it easier than ever before:
- CPAs or members of the general public can fill out an FCPA nomination form (just some contact details and simple support documentation) and tell us why their candidate should be accepted into Fellowship;
- Once accepted, the nominee will be contacted by CPA NB to provide any necessary details;
- Completed forms will be sent to the Member Recognition Committee for candidate review and selection!
You nominate the best, and we'll do the rest.
Please note: Nominations for Fellowship can be submitted at any time throughout the year, however any submissions received after October 1st will be pushed through to the next year.
