On Thursday, February 9th, 2023 the Victoria/Southern Vancouver Island Chapter celebrated Lunar New Year.
The Victoria/Southern Vancouver Island Chapter hosted 188 members and candidates, along with their family and friends, at their annual Lunar New Year event. Everyone enjoyed a nine-course dinner at Don Mee Seafood Restaurant; from wonton soup, to spring rolls, to chow mein, no one went home hungry! The room was full of energy as attendees re-connected with their peers and also developed new relationships with fellow attendees.
Throughout the evening, the Chapter held a blended online and in-person auction to support the CPA Award in Accounting at Camosun College. The Chapter exceeded their goal and raised over $4,400 for the award which will assist the next generation of CPAs.
A variety of speeches were made, including a fascinating overview of the history of this annual event which began almost 20 years ago, as well as remarks from last year's CPA Accounting Award recipient who described the significant impact and value of receiving the award.
The Victoria/Southern Vancouver Island Chapter would like to thank everyone who attended. Stay tuned for information on the next event.
