As a Member of Accounting Technicians Ireland, you can use the highly respected professional letters of MIATI after your name. Members are required to maintain this designation by completing compulsory continuous professional development (CPD).

Why is Continuous Professional Development important?

CPD is important as it enables you to maintain your professional competence and designation status. The Institute provides you with 30 hours of CPD training as part of your Membership to support you in keeping your knowledge and skills at the correct level required to ensure that clients and employers receive competent accounting technician professional service.

How can I connect with Members in my area?

We have four District Societies - Leinster, Munster, Western and Ulster - which exist to encourage interaction and engagement between our Members. These are established local communities of professionals who further promote the Accounting Technician profession on the ground and facilitate networking in different regions.

Each District Society plans a variety of charity, networking and social events throughout the year, invitations to which are emailed to Members in advance. Once you become a Member, you are automatically enrolled in the District Society relevant to where you live.
