Association of Chartered Accountants in the United States (ACAUS)
The Association of Chartered Accountants in the US (ACAUS) is a non-profit, professional and educational organisation, representing the interests of chartered accountants in the US. It has a number of chapters in major finance centres across the US and communicates with its members mainly through its LinkedIn Group.
ACAUS organises business and social events in cities across the country. These include talks by prominent US business people, as well as networking and CPD events. The organisation is partly funded by ICAEW and our members are automatically eligible to join and attend.
ICAEW has a network of contact members around the world. Our contact members in North America are your key points of contact for enquires and act as ambassadors in promoting ICAEW’s strategy and brand within our country.
Invitation to events
To ensure you receive invitations to social events, please opt into ‘networking’ under ‘Management, staff and personal development’ via your communication preferences. Updates on events which cover finance or business topics will depend on your other communication choices.
