ABOUT ICPAK – THE HOST
The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK) is a regulatory body mandated to regulate and coordinate the activities of qualified and registered Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) in Kenya – including promoting research into the subject of accountancy and finance and related matters, publication of books, periodicals, journals and articles in connection therewith; promoting the international recognition of the Institute, advising the Examination Board on matters relating to examinations standards and policies, advising the Minister for Finance on matters relating to financial accountability in all sectors of the economy and setting and enforcing standards of professional practice such as accounting, auditing and ethical standards. The Institute is established by an Act of parliament – The Accountants Act No. 15 of 2008 and has been in existence since 1978. Over its long history it has registered over 29,000 members. Its members work in diverse sectors of the economy as accountants, financial experts, auditors and financial consultants. Over 800 of our members have emigrated and are working beyond the borders of Kenya. Members of the Institute are present in 41 different countries around the globe.
Each year for the last 40 years, ICPAK has maintained a rich tradition of congregating once a year to reflect on the profession and emerging issues affecting the nation. The last seminar followed the same pattern as it sought to reinforce the role of professional accountants in safeguarding public interest. The second edition of the 39th Annual Seminar attracted an average of 2,900 participants on both physical and virtual attendance, largely drawn from Kenya but with representation from Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Mozambique. The current event is targeted to attract a wider representation of East Africa and the continent at large.
Due to limited seats the Institute has held two Annual Seminars since 2021to enable participation by most embers. This year, the Institute shall also hold two Annual Seminars dubbed Edition 1 and Edition 2 to accommodate all the professionals that had expressed interest to attend the Annual Seminar. The first edition shall be held on 22nd -26th May 2023 while the second one for this year shall be held on 13th– 17th November 2023.
This year’s events mark 40 years since the time when the Institute held its first Annual Seminar in 1984. This demonstrates resilience and commitment towards the Institute’s mandate and the Accountancy profession. Throughout these decades, the Annual Seminar has acted as a beacon of hope to the profession.
Occasioning from the limited seating space and to provide comfortable delegate experience, the Institute shall hold the Seminar in two physical venues i.e Sarova White sands and Pride Inn Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa Hotel in Mombasa, Kenya with an option of live streaming and allocation of speakers and panelists across both venues. The delegates’ allocation to both venues shall be done based on date of payment, with the first venue being allocated the early paying delegates. The seminar shall also be streamed on the virtual platform where some delegates shall be participating.
