Who are we and what do we do?

CASSI is an umbrella organisation that works to provide a link between all the local chartered accountant societies in Ireland and Chartered Accountants Ireland, our parent body. Our aim is to effectively coordinate all the local societies in order to provide a strong voice for all accountancy students in Ireland. We work to gain a consensus of the local committees’ opinions in dealing with the student issues of the day. The local societies are the backbone of what CASSI is and what CASSI does. Without a vigorous local society network it would be impossible for CASSI to operate. Through the medium of CASSI all the local societies have an opportunity to be heard at a national level through one voice. CASSI committee members are all elected once a year and positions are open to all accountancy students in Ireland.

When do we meet?

CASSI undertake to meet bi-monthly to discuss all issues of relevance to students. Through these meetings we address the topical local student issues and work to promote student issues at a national level.

CASSI is the forum which the local societies can communicate and form an effective student voice within the accountancy profession here in Ireland.
