Furthermore, to apply for Fellow Membership, the individual must be a member in good standing of an IFAC member body recognised by the Institute in addition to meeting the general eligibility criteria and has worked in public practice or, in commerce industry, or as a lecturer at an institution of higher education or, as an accountant in business for a period of at least five years.
