The Jersey Society of Chartered and Certified Accountants (JSCCA) has announced its 2014/15 Executive Committee to support its members and represent the accountancy profession in Jersey.
Following its recent Annual General Meeting, JSCCA members re-appointed Andrew Quinn as President and Clare Treharne as Vice President, whilst Bob Henkhuzens was elected Treasurer following the retirement of Chris Matthews, who has held the position for the past seven years.
Also sitting on the new committee are Matt Ryan, Jane Richardson, Paul Woodman, Aynslie Le Brun, Chris Stuart and Natalie Passmore. Caroline Harrington remains Secretary.
Over the course of the next 12 months the JSCCA will be organising various events to celebrate its 40th anniversary. This year, for the fourth consecutive year, the JSCCA is also offering its bursary, designed to financially assist Jersey students for the duration of their studies at a university where students ultimately wish to pursue a career in accounting after university. The interview process for this year’s bursary, worth up to £5,000 each year, has just been completed, with the recipient of the bursary to be announced shortly.
First established in 1974 and currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, the JSCCA has a membership of 700, representing accountants in various industries across Jersey including finance, retail, utility companies, and hospitality. It liaises regularly with the Jersey Financial Services Commission and Government on matters relating to the accounting profession in Jersey and organises regular CPD events for the accounting profession in Jersey. Its membership extends to members of Chartered, Certified and other recognised accountancy bodies and students.
Andrew Quinn commented:
“I am delighted to be re-elected for a second term and look forward to continuing to work with my committee and our new student representatives to support all our members and prospective members in a rapidly changing business environment, particularly in such a milestone year for the JSCCA.
“As well as representing the interests of the accounting sector, I am pleased that we will be maintaining our support of local students and future business leaders wishing to pursue a career in accountancy and business through our bursary scheme. Once again the standard of applicants was very high, and we will be announcing the recipient of this year’s bursary very soon.”
