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

I would be very interested to find out who owned the coffee shop prior to its transfer???? I certainly wouldn't think it was anything but an Arms length deal!

I am with you all the way theallseeingeye and Steve Hamilton and left with similar feelings. I am concerned no member resolutions put forward for the AGM will get air time.

Re: ABC - Entry exams and fail rates

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.

Re: Out with Malley in with Malley 2.0?

Now the 2017 year is complete would a new s202B notice be worthwhile with information from the following year being "freshly" prepared by the new board. A fresh audit as well. I have terminated membership now so I cannot help but still want the bastards held to account without my money.

The one research output, a joint research project, "Ethics in Business", that used the member databases of both bodies was released in July under AHRI's brand only. Mr Wilson said that marked the effective end of the co-operation agreement between CPA and AHRI. So AHRI was running an ethics in busi...

They buried the s202 remuneration report in a million page document of utter crap and they will bury the resolutions in the same way. Become a bit of a glass half empty kind of thinker with these unethical pricks.

Really.... If they want a unified CPA moving forward just allow the members to appoint a new board. This is n...

Supposing the board isn't replaced by next year hopefully anyone who is going to leave cancels membership prior to 31 December so they don't ram retention down our throats again even though a bunch of members have left by the time of the agm

I am all for spilling the board and getting the CPA back into the hands of the members. However, I stop short on labelling all people on divisional councils as complicit with the board and possibly smearing their reputation. I, as the rest of us could have pushed to have these problems aired and res...
