  • social media
  • business cards
  • email and hard copy signature blocks
  • individual names listed on letterhead
  • all references to members' names in marketing and advertisements

Examples of use are:

Please note:

  • The use of a comma between your name and your designations is optional.
  • The use of a comma between designations is required.
  • Where there are dual or triple designations, the order of the CA, CMA and CGA designations may be reversed. The CPA designation should be followed by the legacy designation it was granted with.
