Branches
There are five active branches around the country with elected and volunteer office bearers who work and reside within the vicinity of the branches. The   branches operate on their own with minimal support from the head office. We currently have branch offices located in Lae, Madang, Mt Hagen, Kokopo, Goroka and Tabubil. The National Council wants to see branches established in provinces that have a minimum of five (5) financial members. The Lae branch office is staffed with a full time Office Manager and it is the intention of the National Council to establish regional offices.

Staffing
The Executive Director heads the organization in implementing Council decisions well supported by an Academic Director, an Administration Director and a Branch Manager based in the Lae office. CPA PNG has total staff strength of thirteen full time staff members with seasonal casuals employed during conference and examination periods.
