Re: CPA Australia - Sponsorship

This will be a question for the new board to answer to us members. I don't want my membership fees to be used for sponsorship rather I prefer more CPD at reasonable price. So together we can influence CPA Australia direction if we voice out stronger rather than let them take it in whatever direction...

Re: CPA Australia's CPA Advice Programme

Maybe its time to contact those 26 that are left and recommend them kindly to join something else, so that we can shut that this lemon business.

Re: CPA board before Senate Inquiry in Canberra this week

Re: Announcement from the Board of CPA Australia

No matter the outcome, a full investigation is a must. The Senate should also continue with the inquiry because those board of directors have to be held accountable. We should not stop here because one they have devalue the CPA Australia designation, second they have ripped us off by charging enormo...

Re: Message from Mr McPhee about Independent review requesting submissions.

My 5 cent advice, even when a new board is establish, WE members need to have open door to the board of directors to hold them accountable. The next thing once we resolve those issue is to push for CPA to issue half yearly financial statements that will allow us accountants to know what is happening...

Re: Education

That is why a new strategy which is member centric is required. All the CPD and courses have no members input its just run like a business model to build surplus rather than creating prestigious and calibre CPA and FCPA. One step at a time I guess, first we need to clean this mess and remove the boa...
