The Chartered Accountants' Company

STOP PRESS: Our Master, Graeme Gordon, has now completed his odyssey the length of the Thames from its source under a rock, far to the west in Gloucestershire, all the way to Tower Bridge in the heart of London in the east; a distance of over 150 miles. Graeme was raising funds for five excellent charities. He began on Sunday with a half marathon, then a cross-country cycle ride, and then took to the river in his scull, finally making landfall at HMS President in the shadow of the Tower of London, where he was greeted by the Lord Mayor, Sheriff Chris Hayward, and President’s CO. Graeme has already raised over £23,000, which is a splendid sum, but if you would still like to donate, then just visit www.source2city.com


The Company has four “pillars”, or principal aims:-

  • Business and professional: To promote the values and objectives of the profession, to nurture leadership and to influence the broader business debate;
  • Charitable: To give something back to society, to direct our efforts and funds to relevant sustainable causes and communities and to leverage the skills and experience of our Members;
  • City Civic: To contribute to the governance of the City of London Corporation, and to participate actively in the life of the City; and
  • Fellowship: To engage effectively with our Members, with the broader Livery movement and with our profession, whilst enjoying ourselves.

Within these we further prize, endorse and promote seven key values: integrity, friendship, leadership, giving back, trust, citizenship, and linking the past, present and future.

350

Our Royal Charter allows us to have 350 Liverymen and an unlimited number of Freemen. A Freeman may enjoy many of the privileges of membership, but may not vote at Guildhall or wear the Livery Uniform, until he or she becomes a Liveryman.

ICAEW Members are always welcome to contact the Clerk and discuss the possibility of joining us, initially as a Freeman.

Personal merit, a willingness to contribute in a collegiate environment and to donate to a range of good causes, and a pleasant personality are all we ask of applicants.
