Accountant honoured

Sointula’s Daniel Cheetham has been granted a Fellowship by the Certified General Accountants Association of Canada.

Sointula’s Daniel Cheetham, a certified accountant who splits his time between Sointula and Vancouver, has been granted a Fellowship by the Certified General Accountants Association of Canada, the CGA of British Columbia announced this week. CGA-Canada awards the fellowship designation in recognition of exemplary service to the Association, the profession or the community.

For more than 30 years, Cheetham has been a key contributor to the success of the CGA designation and profession, CGA-BC said in a written release.

He received his CGA designation in 1976 and became a CGA-BC employee in 1984 as the Director of Professional Services. In this position, he played a major role in the design, implementation and refinement of the Association’s continuing professional development program.

In 1995, Cheetham assumed the role of Director of Administration and Human Resources and led the implementation of many vital initiatives. These include the development and launch of CGA-BC’s first website; the adoption of Program 90, the first fully integrated microcomputer learning system for the accounting profession; and the implementation of a financial management strategy that enabled the Association to retire the debt on the CGA building in only 10 years.

Cheetham’s other notable contributions to the Association are diverse and numerous. They include helping to establish the CGA-BC Educational Foundation, which gives prospective students access to the financial resources for success; acting as a founding director on the Vancouver CGA-Computer User Group for the past 24 years; facilitating knowledge sharing through ongoing meetings with senior staff of CGA affiliates; and maintaining excellent working relationships with his counterparts at the Institute of Chartered Accountants of BC and the Certified Management Accountants Society of BC.

Cheetham has provided valuable support to the Association’s Executive Directors and indispensable leadership and guidance to CGA-BC’s employees.
