About CAW Network USA
What is Chartered Accountants Worldwide Network USA?
Chartered Accountants Worldwide Network USA (CAW Network USA) is an organization dedicated to helping Chartered Accountants succeed in the United States. CAW Network USA is run by a team of US based volunteers with a full time Chief Executive. In 2023 CA ANZ agreed that we extend our coverage to ‘North America’. We opened chapters in Toronto and Vancouver in 2023. We plan to add other chapters as needed and to extend coverage to the Caribbean in 2024.
CAW Network USA is the first local network of Chartered Accountants Worldwide, an organization that represents 1.8 million Chartered Accountants and students worldwide and is dedicated to global promotion of the Chartered Accountancy profession.
