Change of Name to CAPA

At the 2nd CAPA Conference held in Melbourne in 1960, there were three new members from Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), Singapore, and the United States. To reflect the extended membership, the description of the confederation was aptly changed from the Far East Conference of Accountants to the Confederation of Asian And Pacific Accountants (CAPA).
