As the 6th President of the Accountants Group in Germany (AGIG) since its formation in 1980, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.
The AGIG is funded by the six Accountancy bodies and this funding is coordinated through the Consultative Committee of British and Irish Accountancy Bodies (CCAB). We currently represent more than 700 professionally qualified Accountants resident here in Germany.
The AGIG is run by a committee elected by the members at the AGM each April. Our principal goals are to encourage networking between members, to develop relationships with local professional bodies and to help with continuing professional education (CPE).
Our main contact with our members is through the Seminars which we hold twice a year in Frankfurt. Being subsidised by the CCAB, they are excellent value for money, and the committee and I are continually seeking out new speakers and selecting topics of interest for the seminars.
In September 2010 we celebrated our 60th Anniversary Seminar, and I was pleased to host this special event in Strasbourg, the first time an AGIG event has been held outside Germany.
For those of you who have not yet managed to come along, please do so, and I look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt sometime soon.
With Kind Regards
