Recognising the achievements of the next generation of CPAs
We are proud to announce that the CPA Australia has recently launched the Murray Wyatt Award, established in memory of our very own Murray Wyatt FCPA, who passed away unexpectedly in July 2021.
Murray was a strong advocate for CPA Australia members and the broader accounting profession. He took an active role in mentoring the next generation of CPAs working in public practice, and was always ready to face the next opportunity or challenge in the public practice community.
The Murray Wyatt Award recognises a member of the CPA who demonstrates Murray’s innovative and progressive mindset, and advocates for their community. They must be in the early stages of a career in public practice, and reside in Australia or New Zealand.
Announcement and Prize Information
The Murray Wyatt Award is an annual award presented at the Public Practice Virtual Conference.
Along with the title of award winner, the recipient will receive a $1,000AUD credit to be used towards CPA Australia professional development activities to support their career growth.
The winner will also receive complimentary registration to this year’s Public Practice Virtual Conference held on Thursday 18 August.
We are confident that Murray will be looking down and celebrating as he continues to support and cheer on the next generation.
We encourage all members of the CPA early in their careers to register and put their best foot forward, celebrating Murray’s passion for the profession and the public practice community.
If you know if anyone that fits the criteria, please nominate them, or encourage them to register.
