ICAC 31st Annual Caribbean Conference

The 31st Annual Conference of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of the Caribbean (ICAC) will be held in Barbados over the period June 27 - 29, 2013. The selected venue is the luxurious Hilton Barbados Resort, which is conveniently located near Bridgetown.

The theme for the conference is “Global Challenges – Regional Solutions” and it is intended to examine the global issues impacting the Caribbean including the global economic recession, the changing international trade environment as well as the impact of new international accounting and auditing standards, rules and regulations. Additionally, the conference will seek to bring into sharp focus the need to develop effective strategies to overcome these challenges affecting the Caribbean region. It will also seek to examine how we can leverage the talent and ingenuity of the professionals in the Caribbean to increase growth, transform the region’s economies and increase competiveness in the global environment.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Barbados (ICAB) will be the host of the 2013 Conference. ICAB President David Simpson says, “The planning process for the 2013 conference continues at a smooth pace. Our planning committee under the chairmanship of our Treasurer Rueben Blenman has formed a range of subcommittees to manage key aspects of the event.”

A cadre of local, regional and international speakers is currently under review for final selection, and registration information for the conference will be available to delegates from January 2, 2013.
