I think it's still another case of 8 days a week. I am expecting Directors to perform, not to have better things to do.
Mmmm, and it's not exactly sailing at CPAA at the moment... the commitment required now is more than it ever was.

Lame. All they have done is formalise the assessment for stuff that was already available and free. And there's still much better webinars etc. being offered by for-profit companies for free. There also still doesn't seem to be much focus on accounting. Perhaps we should change the organisation name...

Just a small observation about governance of CPA and CPD hours: registration for the forthcoming "Member Consultation Forums" [sic] carries NIL hours for CPD.
The forums are free, aren't they? CPAA doesn't like giving away CPD hours for free, it hurts their business model.
