2018 CPA New Brunswick Convocation

This prestigious event is the highlight of the year for our organization. Having taken place at the Fredericton Convention Centre on Saturday, February 3, 2018, CPA New Brunswick celebrated the accomplishments of the 53 candidates who successfully completed their designation education requirements, or who have been admitted into membership.

In addition, we also awarded the FCPA title, the profession’s most prestigious honour, to 5 members who have rendered outstanding service to the profession, the organization and their community.
