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

He's on almost $1 million per year and he can't even manage to address every issue in the letter? Zero acknowledgement on member numbers, not even to give some bullshit excuse about why they "can't" divulge that information.

He also provided zero evidence to substantiate his claim that "no directors have exceeded their allowable terms".

Anyone know where the elusive CPAA Advice Constitution is?

Yes this is the first paragraph of Andrew's letter. It was simply ignored.
The word "members" appears 155 times and yet I cannot find anywhere the exact number of voting members we have . Can you please supply me with the number of voting members for each year, as at reporting date, for the last 10 years. I am not seeking the number of total members, which includes students and associates, as this number is of no use to voting members.

I am sure this information is available readily.

Now that would make interesting reading!

I wondered the same thing - it's nowhere on the CPA Advice website.

Still fail to see how CPA Advice sits within CPAA's Objects!!!!!!

Great letter Andrew. Very professional , unlike the grubby reply from Awty who is the $1M company secretary.
It is such a disgrace that two COO are appointed on close to $1M each and cant even lodge a 388 on time.

I fail to see how the objects of CPA Advice are aligned with CPA Australia

to promote excellence, enterprise and integrity
amongst Members and the financial, accounting and business advisory professions
generally,


- no, CPA Advice does not do this

to educate Members with respect to their duties and responsibilities as
members of the financial, accounting and business advisory professions,

- no, CPA Advice does not so this

and to
prescribe the highest standards of ethics and professional conduct for Member

- Nope

So in my opinion CPA Advice should only have been established with member approval and a change to the Constitution.

We should demand our money back!

That's a good point and it seems that the discussion about this and the case for it was never had or you'd expect more than 25 sign ups.

It was only 16 sign-ups in March, perhaps they're ramming people through the course to inflate numbers!

No I think it was 19 at 31 Dec and about 1 or 2 per month. In fact I don't really care much to even check these numbers. The target would be at least 500 for any chance of break even, so 19 or 25 is too low either way.
