Niagara-on-the-Lake Chartered Accountant and prominent business leader Stephanie Antonucci, CA, has been appointed President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario's Niagara District CA Association. The District Association is the CA profession's local presence and organizes activities that benefit local Chartered Accountants and the community at large.

In addition to helping to serve, represent and provide fellowship among local CAs, the District Association helps bring the Institute's many programs to its members, while also organizing important community events, such as tax clinics for people with low incomes. The District Association also contributes to local charities through fundraising events.

Ms. Antonucci is Manager of Receivables and Leasing at John Deere Credit in Burlington. A CA since 1999, she graduated from Brock University in 1995 with an Honours Bachelor of Business Administration degree.

Previous to her employment at John Deere, Ms. Antonucci worked in public accounting.

"The Niagara District CA Association offers a variety of continuing education and social events for all CA's in the Niagara Region. These events provide a great opportunity to learn and interact with CA's from both public accounting and industry in our region," said Ms. Antonucci. "We encourage all local CA's to become a member of the District Association and to participate in events held by the Association."

"The CA profession is in the forefront of our province's economy, and important to communities of all types and sizes," said Rod Barr, FCA, President and CEO of the Institute. "We believe that strong District Associations help build and strengthen the CA designation and our profession's contribution to Ontario's prosperity."
