What is CA Nights?
SAICA’s CA Nights is an exclusive VIP trainee-only event that exists to keep trainees like you on the journey to greatness as well as to challenge them to develop the “responsible leadership” traits expected from qualified CAs(SA).
Using current thought leaders and experienced professionals to debate practical and implementable solutions for troublesome and complex socio-economic issues, CA Nights supports the development of a community of young leaders who can lead the country in achieving its development goals – passing on SAICA’s leadership baton to you – the next generation of qualified CAs(SA).
Why should you attend?
Based on review of last year’s events in Cape Town and Johannesburg, these forum-style discussions are proven to help trainees feel less isolated and better prepared for what being a member of the chartered accountancy profession entails.
Who are the speakers?
The speaker list for each event is a closely guarded secret. But rest assured, you will be delighted by the people who form part of the CA Night’s panels.
