Re: 23 May 2018 - AFR Fiery CPA AGM calls for stripping Alex Malley's life membership

One of the things that intrigued me is that there has been evidence of farming of proxy votes to "preserve the board" and to "vote against resolutions" by using overseas members! My question here i...

That's makes me wonder if they really do care!! We are getting the message that they wanted us to pass and gave us advice such as study hard or attend tutorial. They will not sit down with us who failed many times and show us where did we go wrong! It seems to us we are looking at a very high wall b...

Re: ABC - Entry exams and fail rates

We can't hold the new members in those positions responsible for past failings, so give them a go I reckon. Hi Brett, I received a letter from CPA (Rob Thompson Group Executive, Member E...

Thanks Brett!!

By the way I am unsure of who is CEO of CPA as I tried Google to find out who is the current CEO but it still pointed to none other than Alex Malley!!

Strategic management accounting is one of the four compulsory subject!
