Shropshire Society of Chartered Accountants
The Society was formed in 1990 to bring together chartered accountants who worked or lived in the county of Shropshire to provide an opportunity for members to have an effective medium for the exchange of views and to meet socially.
We still aim to provide a focal point for members in the county. We also join with similar branch societies in North Staffordshire and Wolverhampton in comprising the Staffs, Salop and Wolverhampton District Society. The District Society is represented on the governing Council of the Institute, and contributes to the Institute’s policy formulation.
All members of the Institute working or living in Shropshire would be made very welcome should they choose to become involved in the branch by participating in any of our meetings or activities which may be of interest.
Benefits of participating in the Shropshire Society
- Meeting other members of the Institute working or living in the county, in practice or in business;
- Participating in discussion groups;
- Attending occasional social events with partners; and
- Becoming involved in the process of governance and policy making for ICAEW.
We are currently running two Discussion Groups, one in the Telford area and one in Oswestry. Please let us know if you would be interested in forming a discussion group in another part of the county.
Telford discussion group
This meets over lunch four times a year, in March, June, September and December, usually on a Thursday at the Old Vicarage Hotel in Worfield. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in joining our group.
Oswestry discussion group
This has been formed only recently, but is already attracting healthy interest. Please contact Richard Durrant at email@example.com if you would like to become involved in the group’s future activities.
We organise events for members, ranging from CPD courses to annual dinners, social events and discussion groups, as well as representing the interests of chartered accountants in the district to the wider business community. Visit our ICAEW Events page to see what is going on in your area.
These are held 4 times a year, usually on a Wednesday evening at the Lord Hill Hotel in Shrewsbury. All local members are welcome to attend and will be rewarded with food and drink in return for helping to shape the agenda for the society. We also hold an Annual General Meeting in May. This takes the form of a social event with a different venue each year.
