BC Accounting Clubs Committee

The Langara Accounting Club is an active member in the BC Accounting Clubs Committee (BC-ACC). The BC Accounting Clubs Committee is a united body of accounting club executives, representing the student accounting societies in the Lower Mainland. By coming together, we are able to give a voice to the thousands of accounting students represented by our societies, share best practices, and support each other in our challenges.
