Institute of Certified Bookkeepers

#GlobalBookkeepingWeek celebrates the bookkeeping industry and the value bookkeepers bring to small businesses


How you can celebrate Global Bookkeeping Week!

Free Network Meetings

Throughout November bookkeepers can attend a local Network Meeting for FREE. Whether it’s face-to-face or virtual, this is a great opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and see how engaging and supportive these groups are.

Our Network Meeting groups will also be competing in a quiz to put their bookkeeping knowledge to the test (but mostly to have a bit of fun). ICB will award the group with the most correct answers in the shortest time with a $100 voucher for their end of year Network event.

Everyone that took part in the 2019 Network event enjoyed last years quiz so hopefully they’re up for the challenge again… but perhaps we’ll ask that no one ties up Deb this time (rest assured no ICB employee will participate in the quiz).

Global Bookkeeping Week is celebrated all around the world. See how other countries inlcuding New Zealand and the United Kingdom are celebrating with you. You might even see the occasional interaction from the Ukraine!

See how bookkeepers are being celebrated globally!


#GlobalBookkeepingWeek

Each year tens of thousands of bookkeepers across the globe take time out of their busy schedules to come together and raise a cup to their profession in recognition of the value they bring to the small business world. We encourage you to post a photo of yourself, your clients or even your pets raising a cup to bookkeepers! Have some fun, get creative and show your support to the community. Just make sure to use the #GlobalBookkeepingWeek hashtag on social media.
