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

Don't get too excited. It was written by Professor Roger Jachau from University of Western Sydney. He has been writing to ITB on this topic since 2016....if you write to ITB now you might get lucky by having your letter published in the April 2020 edition....

Re: 2017 CPA Report

The treatment of the CPA Australia Advice loan on page 90 is not correct. It is saying the carrying value in the books is $8.44 million. "On 1 June 2015, CPA Australia entered into a loan facility with its wholly owned subsidiary, CPA Australia Advice. The maximum amount that can be advanced under t...

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

Your new Board is very pleased to announce Andrew Hunter has been appointed as CPA Australia’s new Chief Executive Officer and will take up the role on 3 April 2018. Andrew was chosen from an excellent short list of four men and four women selected from Australia and overseas. We believe he will do ...

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

I pity him because his career will end in disgrace. Unlike Tyrone Carlin who scurried back to his day job, I cannot see Awty continuing after the new CEO is hired. I don't believe Awty had any influence in the Malley led period. Awty was happy to take the $900K and let things run their course. But n...

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

I pity Adam Awty….he will be the only CEO,COO in the organization’s living memory to deliver a loss. The 2016 the annual operating surplus was around $7.5 million. I am guessing it would have been similar for 2017 were it not being smashed by payouts to former CEO (Malley) & former COO (Hughes), wri...

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

Guys, just finished the virtual meeting held today. It was not as emotional as the meeting you had Magnet, as it was: - only for 60 minutes - Peter Wilson spent 15 minutes on an introduction - Questions and feedback could only be typed into a chat line, there was no voice line for any dialogue. I th...

Re: Direct Voting with Open Nominations

Great updte dlb. Can you advise the format of the meeting? It sounds very unstructured if they are taking questions on the fly and taking straw polls of the room. Also, Board members arguing against the views of members in the room is not FEEDBACK. They need to do less talking and more listening.....

Re: Membership Numbers by State in Australia

A question. Are the overseas CPA members, actual members of CPA Australia or the independent CPA organisations, for example Singapore? Should these independent organisations, actually be counted as part of the membership of CPA Australia??? Maybe the CPA Iceland branch, needs to included in the mem...

Re: CPA Board Update 9th Feb 2018 Consultation Forums

Agree with your Brett. The protracted manner in which CPA Australia has scheduled these forums puts members on the back foot. In Peter Wilson’s message of 15 December he states forums would be conducted in February and March, and finalized motions for the 2018 AGM will be sent to members in April. T...
