Re: 2017 Australian Human Resources Institute accounts

So looks like the poor old Directors miss out with fees of $29,500 while the Chair creams off a tidy $188,510 - not bad for 6 meetings a year!

Re: Email 8: 13thMarch2017.CPA Special Members Resolution. Reduce Directors Fees, Time for Members Action

The resolution to reduce the current boards remuneration, may have been defeated, but their is still the next AGM to get more members involved and act. I suspect the way to achieve this outcome will be to commission a credible 3rd party to benchmark the salaries and include the report in a new reso...

Re: AGM Day - Live Feed

Statements of "more than 75%" support for the first four resolutions make it sound like you won the popular vote, even it the turnout was only 5%! As I pointed out, the Board resolutions passed with 3% of the membership - hardly a mandate and a poor reflection on the Board's ability to engage with ...

Re: D Day has arrived for CPA Australia Members.

Brett,

How can the Chair and Board vote (for themselves and undecided proxies) for resolutions in which they have a pecuniary interest. Surely, under principals of good governance they should excuse themselves from voting and leave the vote on those matters to the members?
