In 2017, the New Zealand Bookkeepers Association Incorporated membership voted to enter into a joint venture agreement with ICB Global
As part of this joint venture agreement, we benefit from having global recognition, access to tailored membership management software and the opportunity for collaboration between the many associations across all of the countries that make up the ICB Global network.
ICB Global benefit by having another reputable local association join the Global network and contribute to the ongoing development of the bookkeeping community around the world.
ICB Global has a fluid and contemporary approach to meeting the needs, discussing the current developments and ensuring on a global basis we achieve objectives that benefit each local (country) association but leverage off the Global recognition that we have. This implies that the communication between us all is open and honest and develops over time.
Countries currently representing ICB Global include:

The ICB Crest
In heraldry the unicorn symbolises bravery, innocence, purity, healing powers, pride, intelligence, joy and virility. Apparently.
The Lions often represent England and symbolise courage, nobility, royalty, strength, stateliness and valour, because historically the lion has been regarded as the "king of beasts".
The portcullis (the gate) represents support, strength and defence.
Luca Pacioli himself appears in the crest together with a feather and the scroll to represent our history, the importance of keeping record, learning, etc.
