Merry Christmas to Peter Wilson. When it was suggested that Peter Wilson should be independent of the old board so that we can have a fresh start Peter responded with "That's your issue". Summary of the meeting here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=594

Re: Accountants Daily Article - CPA set for ‘significant announcements’ 14/06/2017

I would love to see divisional councillors stepping up to address and support the change in governance - but to do that they need their voices to be heard and support from the members. I believe CPA have taken down their contact details ...so people who don't come to this forum, or know their counc...

Re: CPA Australia - Sponsorship

Tennis actually has a very big global reach - the last Aus Open men's final had the biggest audience of a sporting event in history (or something like that , I read it at the time). It's not just about reaching accountants, but reaching people who need them, and parents and teachers who influence a ...

Re: What will happen to us if CPA implodes?

Every state, and country outside of Australia with an office, has a divisional president. They are CPAs, elected by their members, and from what I understand, volunteers. In theory, they are your peak member representative into CPA Australia. You can find yours in the annual report, or I saw the lis...

Re: CPA Losing the battle with CA

Now is not the time for hysterical panic or running into the arms of CA (see my last point below). It's a relatively easy solution but it will take a year or two to wash out. Ditch Advice, ditch TV, replace board and C-level with people of more modest salaries who have a meaningful history of servin...

Re: What will happen to us if CPA implodes?

Just to echo wise words above: don't panic. I have contacted my division president about the excessive remuneration, and CPA leadership bringing our professional designation into disrepute - on our dime. Recommend everyone do likewise to counter this "6 disgruntled members" BS and send a clear messa...

Re: Directors Duties s.181-184 of Corporations Act. Time to look seriously at these

Mr Wade does have other income. I believe we would consider him self-employed, so in that sense , his situation is not like that of Tyrone Carlin with obligations to his employer. I would suggest that Mr Wade's CPA pay cheque is not for a full time job though. Mr Petty on the other hand has extensiv...

The all seeing eye is very experienced. I think you are correct. Board crisis management 101. Well, based on Alston's and Ryan's resignations, I would suggest the rest of the Board is hunkering-down to protect their golden goose. ie. the second option I proposed upthread. They need to get their hea...

Wow. CEO clearly feeling the heat -and for that salary and now this behaviour, deservedly so. My corporate experience tells me one of two outcomes lie ahead. One is that the Board sees the writing on the wall, and decides on a show of leadership by acting decisively to preserve the brand (and their ...

Re: KICK THEM OUT - SPIN. MISREPRESENTATION. GREED. EVEN LIES

I find these remuneration revelations deeply disappointing and excessive.

First post from this CPA. I am not too hung up on Wade's address, as long as the authorities have it and know where to serve legal papers.
