Re: New CEO + Awty leaves 23/3

With all the individuals, who created the problems gone, the new board, can go to the AGM and blame the past administration and keep saying, its time to move forward. This is exactly what will happen. Peter Wilson made it very clear at the member forum that cpa will focus on moving forward. They ha...

Re: Report: Member Consultation Forum - Melbourne Monday 5th March

Magnet. I would encourage you, to ask all your fellow CPA friends to attend the AGM, and then ask questions of the individual who knows a great deal of answers. Adam Awty CEO CFO COO etc. Adam Awty actually was in attendance on Monday night at the forum. But he did not say a single word. Actually c...

Report: Member Consultation Forum - Melbourne Monday 5th March

I attended the Melbourne consultation forum last night and thought I would give an very brief run down of how it went. First to say that I attended this session with an open mind. I am not involved with any CPA groups and have only been a qualified CPA for 1 year. So I went in wanting to hear what t...

Great work Brett, I will be signing the resolutions! And I will email my Victoria Divisional council with concerns about the need to fix the governance model and you report. Also, and this is just a thought, will your resolutions be sent out to members via email? Similar to the "Spillers" group emai...

Unbelievable!! I never knew they had a whole tram advertising that pathetic book! And i still can't even get my head around the purchase of a coffee shop!! Seriously???? If a forensic review of the CPA books is ever completed, I can't imagine what else they would find. I bet there would be plenty of...

Re: Promoting Alex Malley, instead of CPA as an organisation

Just a quick update on the purchase of the coffee shop. Yep they bought the coffee shop. It's been confirmed by a reliable/senior source on the inside. Apparently Alex had some plans about what he wanted to do with events and it fit into that plan. Don't worry, I'm sure the purchase of a coffee sho...

Re: Brief Update from Brett 6th Feb 2018

I would recommend that life membership be stripped from Malley and the other directors who have breached their duties. I know that everyone in here would 100% support that Malley is stripped of his life membership, however I think someone was advised that CPA would find this sort of proposal 'defam...

Re: Greater Transparency on International Travel at CPA

Taken out of context the way it was, I appreciate the misunderstanding but perhaps this is a good opportunity to correct this. Do you think it may have been a better opportunity to clear it up when the article was written 11 months ago?? https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.afr.com/brand/rear-window...

I never questioned the course itself...if I couldnt pass the subjects they set, I would have realised that perhaps accounting is not the job for me. The exams are hard for a reason...if you can't pass them then maybe think about a different path. Steady on there young fella. People come from differ...

Re: ABC - Entry exams and fail rates

I have only been a qualified CPA for about 1 year, although i finished all my exams about 2 years ago. I found the CPA program to be very challenging in parts although I did not fail any subjects. Some subjects were far easier than others. I never questioned the course itself...if I couldnt pass the...

TV Ads

Noticed while watching the cricket last night on channel 9 that CPA have started running some tv ads again. Seemed to be the same ones as a few years ago. I would also expect to see a heap of ads popping up on channel 7 over the next 2 weeks with the australian open starting today. Money well spent!...

Re: CPA Australia and The Castle. Striking similarities

I do love this movie!

Towards the end of the movie, after the lawyer Dennis Denuto has made it to the big time, he gets a plaque outside his office "As Seen On TV"....i can just imagine such a plaque hanging outside the next office of our former CEO!!
