Merry Christmas to Peter Wilson. When it was suggested that Peter Wilson should be independent of the old board so that we can have a fresh start Peter responded with "That's your issue". Summary of the meeting here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=594

Re: ABC - Entry exams and fail rates

Student members cannot vote. May be you could ask a question. I don't know if that is reserved for voting members only. If someone fails a subject 3 times surely they could bring them in and sit down with someone that can explain to them where they went wrong. Of course they have to set some pass ma...

Re: CPA Australia members are 'being taken for a ride'.

Who and how can we verify each proxy is true and correct not a concoction of deceit? I don't think that there is any way to differentiate between the people who genuinely wanted their vote to be for resolutions 1-4 and against the rest and those that got tricked into giving an undirected proxy to t...

Re: CPA Australia members are 'being taken for a ride'.

Do you think Peter Wilson met with Ian McPhee in the two months prior to his appointment as Director/President of CPA Australia on 1st October 2017? I leave you to consider why that could be a relevant question in view of what has been happening at CPA Australia. Well in the Notice of Meeting in Pe...

I've heard from credible sources that <A Divisional President> was telling people at the Women on Boards meeting that if they are unsure of how to vote they should give an undirected proxy to the chair :evil:

Re: How to vote in AGM 2018? If I can't attend in person?

If you vote YES or NO to all resolutions the proxy cannot override that. If you choose undirected the proxy can choose. DO NOT appoint the Chair as proxy AND choose undirected. That is a vote for the board proposed resolutions and AGAINST any other resolutions. I recommend you vote against resolutio...

Re: D Day has arrived for CPA Australia Members.

Hopefully you can go in and edit it. Let us know how you go. If you tick "undirected" the proxy can do what they want. If you choose one of the yes/no/abstain then the proxy has to follow your direction. It should not matter that the chair is the proxy they have to follow your directions. It would b...

It's really odd because the only comment about AHRI in there is: CPA president Peter Wilson (paid $225,000, plus $200,000 as the literally irreplaceable president and chair of the Australian Human Resources Institute) In fairness they did link to the other articles as well: Concern over Peter Wilson...

Re: Accountants Daily - CPA believes penalties still low

Yeah if CPA Australia wants to understand why the banks don't respond to ASIC they only need to look as far as their own 202B request. In that instance, an offence of strict liability ASIC said: we cannot impose a penalty for non compliance as it would require court action. ASIC has not even imposed...

Re: D Day has arrived for CPA Australia Members.

Resolution 5 - It wouldn't hurt to support this. In fact it's fairly unlikely that the resolutions which require 75% would pass so discussion of the member proposed resolutions wouldn't seem to hurt? Resolution 7 - This does not contradict resolution 6. They can both pass and there can be 2 provisio...

Zero accountability.

Engineers Australia is another member body of Professions Australia of which Awty was a Director, in 2017 I think.

Brilliant article. Insane situation.

Tim Youngberry, a member of the old guard was also paid $44K in a consulting fee. Refer the related parties disclosure. They didn't tell us that at the time, when they assured us how independent he was. Just doing it for the members.

Re: CPA director Caroline Spencer appointed WA Auditor General

It would seem like forgoing the fees makes it legal from the point of view of the act. However, I think the question remains about the time commitment BOTH ways. As far as members are concerned we should be wondering if we are getting a committed Director or someone with a great resume that simply d...
