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

The latest issue of ITB actually , finally , published a letter from a member expressing their disappointment with the past events at CPA Australia, the lack of pursuing accountability, and the need to restore the brand.

Memo to the Editors: too little, too late.

Last time I met Malley, back in about 2015, he told me what a great guy Tyrone Carlin was. Look how great he has proved to be. Great at getting his snout in the trough, but not much else that has been reported. I certainly struggle to find any reporting of his achievements on behalf of CPA members. ...

Re: 12th Feb 2018. The rort continues. Joe Aston column today

Why did the old board see the need to rush through a clause right before their term ended last year, a clause allowing for CPA Advice directors to have their legal fees covered by CPA Australia ? Is this because they could see grounds for legal action related to directors duties? Everyway you look a...

Re: Failure of the IRP Final Report - No accountability or responsibility

Resignation from CPA Australia will not drive a shred of accountability, nor precipitate the changes that are still desperately necessary to prevent it all happening again.
