“Congratulations to Matthew Stam for making the national honour roll. Matthew and two other Chilliwack students, Kayla Murray, and Trevor Pehlke, have earned their designation through rigorous training and assessment of their business and accounting competencies,” said David Hallinan, FCPA, FCMA, chair of CPABC board of directors. “These students represent the future of the accounting profession in British Columbia, and I congratulate each and every one of our new graduates. We welcome them to the ranks of B.C.’s chartered professional accountants.”
