CMA Students' Guild


CMA Students' Guild, which we called as "CSG", is the student body of the Institute of Certified Management Accountants of Sri Lanka (CMA). CMA Students' Guild builds cohesion among the students of the Institute of Certified Management Accountants. CSG was initiated by Prof. Lakshman R.Wattawala, President of CMA Sri Lanka to promote and develop CMA students' body for the betterment of current and potential studentship.

CSG is operated by CMA students; this is initiated with the thoughts that rose in the minds of students who could gather "Indo Lanka CMA Students Fest" held at Cochin, State of Kerala, India. That unity could bring proud to the Institute as well as to our mother land by achieving a prize of overall runners up. CSG was formed with 12 active student members in March 2012, and currently CSG has more than 200 student members and also planned to increase its council members; therefore every student should stand together with the Guild to achieve our ultimate goals.

The purpose of the CMA Students' guild is to stand as representatives of students within the Institute and externally and to help them to go ahead and beyond their profession. CSG also responsible for providing various services to the students to promote their extracurricular activities, such as academic conferences, training contracts, publications, the coordination of student organizations, seminars and also sport & entertaining activities to build up interaction between fellow students.
