John Howarth and Andrew Ratcliffe ICAEWAt the ICAEW Student Council (ISC) AGM on 4 April, John Howarth (from Anderson Barrowcliff, Thornaby) was elected as the new ISC Chair for 2014-15.

John, who is the outgoing Chair of NCASS and the previous ISC Vice-Chair, will represent ACA students on the ICAEW Council over the next year, as well as chairing meetings and representing the ICAEW at a variety of functions.

John said “I am pleased to have been elected and look forward to working with the new Vice-Chair, Eleanor Winder, over the next year. I’ve really enjoyed the year I spent as Vice-Chair, particularly the involvement in BusinessFutures and my work with the outgoing Chair to improve how the ICAEW engages with younger members. I’m excited about taking this further forward, and the opportunities available to deliver on the platform I stood on involving encouraging student members to get involved in volunteering, and improving the central resources around sharing best practice for student societies.”

The Northern Society of Chartered Accountants was delighted to hear of John’s success in the recent election for the ISC Chair for 2014-15.

Andrew Jackson, Deputy President of Northern Society said: “We are really pleased to hear of John’s success in his bid to be Chair of the ICAEW Student Council for 2014-15.  John has already been representing the views of ACA students during his time as Chairman of NCASS and by his work in the past year as the ISC Vice Chair.  It’s great that a member of Northern Society is now taking the lead of the international body that provides the younger members perspective on what it’s like to train to be an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.  John will also be a member of the Council of ICAEW and we are pleased that he will be able to join our Council member Rob Barrigan in representing the views of the north east & Cumbria too.”
