Success at PQ Awards 23 February 2017

NCASS - Northern Chartered Accountant Students' Society


NCASS are delighted to announce that we have been crowned Student Body of the Year 2017 at the national PQ Awards held on Tuesday 21st February!

Our night at the PQ Awards was filled with entertainment and celebration! The awards were wide-ranging, and nominees travelled from across the UK and abroad to attend the event. ‘Student Body of the Year’ was the first award of the night….NCASS were up against tough opposition, including another ICAEW student society (BCASS), Accounting Student Network Facebook Group, CIPFA Student Network and North West CIPFA Student Network.

For NCASS to come out on top is testament to the hard work and commitment of our committee, both past and present, and this was recognised when we were presented with the award. The award provides both reassurance that NCASS have done a great job, and motivation to continue doing all of the things which allowed us to win on the night. We have a great programme of events lined up for 2017, and NCASS wants to encourage all of our student to be involved!

Speaking about winning the award Chris Soan, President of NCASS (Newcastle University Business School), said “NCASS winning the “Student body of the year” at the PQ Awards this week is a fantastic achievement and well-deserved. Whilst often overused as buzz words, the win is down to teamwork, hard work, commitment and ownership. An active (voluntary) committee and well-attended regular events provides ICAEW students in the region with a fantastic opportunity of widening their professional network beyond their firms. Therefore national recognition of this is the ultimate accolade. I look forward to continuing this momentum into 2017 and beyond. A huge well done!’


NCASS (Northern Chartered Accountant Students’ Society) is the official body that represents ACA students under ICAEW training contracts in the Northern Society area in the North East of England and Cumbria. We have been supporting student chartered accountants across northern England since 1896.

The society is run by ACA student volunteers for ACA students and, space permitting, new committee members are always welcome.
