Re: Summary of CPA Australia Fiasco AFR 22nd Dec 2017 Joe Aston

The most charitable thing that I can say about the new Chairman , and indeed the selection committee, is that they are coming across as arrogant fools who are not equipped to manage external relationships with their member base or the public at large. Peter may well have had no contact with Malley i...

So let me make sure I understand this: Spillers: “we are concerned there has not been full and frank disclosure of remuneration at CPA Australia.

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. That is quite evident from the new Chairman's response, where he is already blaming a vocal minority of rebels seeking to "dest...

Re: CPA Membership Fees

Handing over another year’s money to this opaque, stonewalling, unaccountable organisation is a double-edged sword. I perfectly understand the rationale for staying, being able to vote for change, and getting involved to drive improvement. Past events make clear the need for higher levels of member ...

Re: Is CPA Board in breach of CPA Constitution with Australian Open Tennis?

@Jwheldon I would be reluctant to reach a conclusion on article 6 without reading article 5 at the same time. I don’t doubt an argument can be constructed that entertaining third parties at the Tennis is a valid promotion of the interests of CPAA. Having said that, if memory serves me correctly, pas...

I suspect that CPAA will be happy to lose the 4,000 odd members who are complaining. I fear you are correct. It would suit any Board looking for an easy life and no accountability to have the remaining 146000 sheeple as a membership cash-cow who are unlikely to be asking hard questions ( a comment ...

Exactly, it’s a draft report.
