Welcome to the ABASA website!
38 years of undefeated Success
The Association for the Advancement of Black Accountants of Southern Africa (ABASA) was established in 1985 to promote the professional interests of Black persons engaged in the accounting profession. ABASA is committed and dedicated in this pursuit and is driven by the need to ensure that every black accountant and aspiring accountant can realize
their full potential and aspirations.
Our Latest Initiatives
The ABASA Convention is our Annual flagship event. Its focus is the creation of a pipeline of leaders who will push the agenda of transformation at higher echelons of management. It is an opportunity for ABASA to showcase what the organisation is about and to create a platform for potential employers to engage with black talent. It presents an opportunity for the organisation to set targets for the next 12 months, report on activities of the organisation to members and celebrate the milestones of transforming the profession.
Committed To The Advancement Of Black Accountants
As a non-profit organisation, ABASA relies on contributions and funds raised from members and from stakeholders in the broader business and education community. We accept ad-hoc contributions from a wide range of philanthropic organizations from time to time, however, our most successful form of raising funds has been via our membership fees and events. Please see below for our upcoming events and opportunities to sponsor these.
