New Slogan Competition

From September 2009 onwards, as I have not paid my AAT Membership Renewal because its too expensive and I work in IT now. This means I am no longer a Member of the Association of Accounting Technicians, which means I can’t use MAAT after my name.

So I need a new website slogan, as “Now with added MAAT” will not be true. So I decided to offer a competition! People can submit website slogan ideas, and the person who came up with the one that gets used wins a box of Belgium Chocolates!

Only takes a few clicks, and you could not only get to decide on a new slogan, but win a Box of Belgium Chocolates that have come all the way from Antwerpen!

I do feel its a little unfair to charge £140 a year, just so I can have MAAT on my CV. I worked very hard to complete all of the courses and exams, and already paid many fees for those courses and exams.

Basically, when you become a member you have to agree the following…

“I agree that as long as I remain an AAT full member, I will observe the provisions of the Memorandum and Articles of Association, the Guidelines on Professional Ethics, the bye-laws and all other regulations of the AAT for the time being in force, and that I will use the designatory letters, ‘MAAT’ only while I remain an AAT full member.”

I am tempted to continue to use the MAAT on my CV on my website though, seeing as I earned it. Paying £140 for the privileged of using something I spent years earning is extortion as far as I am concerned. But, I guess as potential future employers may not see it my way and use that as a reason not to hire me, I had best remove it and play ball.

Finally, I have been reminded (read told off) that I have to thank Alice Davies for taking the time to read my blog.
(Epic win really, as its proof someone actually reads it! lol)

    “Taking time out from masterminding domination of the spacelanes” ?
    I have a bunch of indoor cricket tactic hunting people who still read my blog :-) But I don’t know who they are so I can’t thank them directly. And there’s also the Huggy Jacket Cases who are stalking the England Women’s cricket team, not sure if I want to thank those individuals …
