Event Details

We are just 3 days away from ABASA's National Annual Convention in Cape Town from the 27th - 29th of October 2022 under the theme: Driving Leadership Excellence.


This is the organizations flagship event which will celebrate 37 years of ABASAs existence as a transformation leader in the accounting and auditing sector.


ABASAs ultimate focus is the creation of a pipeline of leaders who will elevate the agenda of transformation at higher echelons of management. This convention is an opportunity for ABASA to showcase what the organisation is about and to create a platform for engagement with members and key stakeholders on matters of national interest. It also presents an opportunity for sponsors and partners to inform our members of products, services and opportunities. It presents an opportunity for the organisation to set targets for the next 12 months, report on activities of the organization to members and celebrate the milestones of transforming the profession.
