Why Regional Meetings?

Our members are the heart and soul of The Bookkeepers Alliance. We understand that our members want to build relationships and network with other bookkeepers, both in their own locality and further afield. Our goal is to provide as many opportunities, over a variety of mediums, as possible to facilitate this.

Much of the work we do it online, but as The Bookkeepers Alliance grows we appreciate that there will be more of a need for face to face networking opportunities. To this end, we have developed the concept of Regional Meetings.

Regional Meetings provide an opportunity for bookkeepers to get together in their own region to discuss and debate changes to and challenges in the profession, but also to get support from other bookkeepers. The Bookkeepers Alliance holds support as one of the pillars of our community. Whether this is peer support or support from other professionals.

Establishing regional meetings can be both time consuming, and deeply rewarding. The ability for bookkeepers to come together is often greatly appreciated. As a profession, we tend to work in an isolated environment. While we tend to face similar challenges, we often feel that we are alone, and the only person to have faced this.

At The Bookkeepers Alliance, we understand that while you may have a desire to assist your fellow bookkeepers in establishing such a community, that you have a business to run to. To this end, we will provide you with all the support you need to get your regional meetings up and running, but also help you develop it over time.
You will never be left feeling alone, or with more work or responsibility than you are happy to take on. We encourage you to do as much, or as little as you feel comfortable with. We can assist in sourcing venues, appropriate speakers and so much more.

If you are interested in setting up a regional meeting in your area, please speak to Mike or Kris in the first instance, who will be able to provide support and guidance.
