Who We Are

Professional Accountancy Organization Development & Advisory Group

Established November 2005

The Advisory Group helps IFAC support strong, sustainable professional accountancy organizations—the most effective, efficient, and sustainable source for advancing the accountancy profession—around the world as part of the IFAC’s capacity building efforts. The Advisory Group actively contributes to IFAC’s strategic objectives, especially in preparing a future-ready profession. It primarily focuses on:

  • Raising awareness on PAO development best practice;
  • Facilitating adoption and implementation knowledge sharing; and
  • Empowering PAOs with guidance, leadership, and technical assistance.

Advisory Group members come from both developed and developing economies and represent a variety of different sectors of the economy and the profession. They are nominated and supported by IFAC members. Committee meetings and workshops often include donor agencies, regional organizations, and non-member PAOs to generate expansive knowledge-sharing.
