Re: What do members think of "InTheBlack" magazine?

Only about 5 percent (if that) is worth reading. The rest of it is useless globalist crap.

There are only so many articles on 'diversity', 'equality' and other such nonsense that I can stomach.

Does anyone know the name of the committee so that I can view Hansard etc? I'm having trouble finding it on the APH website.

Re: CEO terminated effective today!

Unless my twitter feed is down, it looks like the CPA have taken down their @nakedceo twitter site. So much for all the money CPA have spent promoting that line. Referring to Alex's recent radio interview, does that mean the CPA Board now recognises that its previous strategy of raising brand aware...

Re: What sort of organisation should Australia CPA be?

I think that a lot of CPAs in practice are also a member of some other association that they get more value out of. Some have things like tax help lines. Ask a CPA for a template trust distribution and you'll get one produced by a some other association. The majority of CPAs are not in practice but...

thenakedceo.com has had references to Malley removed (at least on the landing page)

And incoverstionwithalexmalley.com redirects to the CPAA website.

Re: Alleged past professional misconduct of CEO

Didn't he get pushed out just a few years before that? Well, yes; but it was done very quietly with no finding of wrongdoing. And he received a payout then, too, I believe. So, he obviously had some 'friendlies' in the upper echelons of the university looking out for him then as well. Seems like he...

Re: CEO terminated effective today!

Based on media reports Alex has a number of positions with affiliates/other bodies that prima facie seem to be connected to his former role as CEO. Should check that they go too. I thought PDL academy (Professional Development & Learning Academy Pty Ltd - ACN 147 966 836) would be one, but not acco...

No doubt his contract had CPAA stitched up legally. He will need to save his pennies (millions). He’s got to be unemployable now.
He probably will have trouble finding something that he wants.

But he doesn't need to work - he's earned many millions of OUR money.
