International Accountants Day is back for the 5th year on 10 November! This year marks the first time we will be celebrating International Accountants Day on the actual international date.
Once again organised by the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC), CPA Australia and the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA), it's a carnival-themed event that promises fun and laughter for accountants and their families.
What are some of the activities you and your organisation can do at the 5th International Accountants Day?
#1 Break the Singapore Book of Records together!
We are aiming to break our 2012 record by stringing 3000 namecards together this year. Accountants, gather your friends, families and their namecards and help us set a new record!
You can collect the namecards in advance and drop them off at the offices of SAC (International Plaza), CPA Australia (One Raffles Place) or ISCA (Cecil Street), or just bring them to Gardens by the Bay on event day.
We are counting on you!
#2 Take part in the Amazing Photo Race
Form up teams of 5 and have a splendid time running around Gardens by the Bay to capture landmarks and answering a quiz on the charities present at this year's International Accountants Day.
Fastest team to make it back to the starting point with the correct photos and answers to the quiz will win attractive prizes!
Organisations interested to send a team, please send your names to Karen at email@example.com
#3 Tour the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest with Beneficiaries
Every year, International Accountants Day strives to make a difference to the less privileged. Back by popular demand, we are once again bringing back the Gardens Tour with Beneficiaries. Every caregiver pays only $10 while the beneficiary goes in for free.
This year, Community Chest is bringing 6 charities to the event. Organisations or individuals who are keen to be paired with a beneficiary from this list, please contact Carol at Carol.Lau@cpaaustralia.com.au
There will also be a special Community Chest booth at the Charities corner to know more about the charities present at the event. Watch out for the Sharity Mascot roaming the grounds!
#4 Enjoy FREE Carnival food
Everyone loves their candy floss, popcorn, ice cream...and the list goes on. At this year's International Accountants Day, feast on these finger food while enjoying the rest of the activities.
#5 Soak in the Carnival atmosphere
There will be a variety of gamestalls for you to try your luck at. Suitable for both kids and adults.
#6 Enjoy live music!
We have some extremely talented accountants in our midst! Just take a listen to the bands from PwC Singapore and KPMG, who will be performing live at this year's International Accountants Day.
See you there!
