This is the group to be lobbied. This is the group that appoints the Board. Indeed, a better strategy is to get this group to resign, then there is no one to appoint the Board!

There are some on here with very strong connections to the former leadership.

I am confused.

How is the CPA Chair also chairing the representative council?

So the chair is chairing the committee that is appointing the board as well as him or her.

Isn't it awesome?

The whole board appointment process seems like a massive 'circular reference'!

It's a waste of time. They have failed us so far. We better concentrate on energy on getting the 6000 voting members. Could I please asked each one of us to starting sharing the spill motion links. My opinion is once we regain contract, we need to remove those layers, representation council is a waste of layer and bureaucracy. They do not act in our itself, or else someone by now would have blow the whistle. The only one thing I keep hearing is or they are not paid, they are volunteer and they work or have busy workload. My question is who are you to elect for this role. If you can't serve us members, then you choose the wrong role. We need people that we can trust and that will stand up for members and ensure we remain a member association

My understanding is that Alex has been trying to get rid of Rosalie (and others?) for a while, suggesting she "move on". She and others have been pissed off at the Alex Malley Cult of Personality before it became popular, but sometimes she felt like a voice crying in the wilderness. Please support her (and other honest voices, I don't know any of the others) if you can.

BTW Nigel is a mate of Tyrone's.

Piotr jakubicki nailed his loyalties firmly to the mast when a couple of months ago after I contacted him as a member of the Victorian division to discuss the issues arising his response was
I suggest that if you have any concerns about the governance of CPAA that you contact Jeff Hughes COO member services. I'm sure he will be better placed to address your queries than I would.

They all have to go, this layer has to be removed. I don't know any of them nor am I interested to know them. If we members have questions we should have open door to the board not filtering through the bureaucracy. This is a member association and we members need to remain active and hold our board more accountable. Sorry, but I had enough with all the layers. We will all agree or disagree they do nothing. Half or most of us don't know any of them and for how long have they sit on the representative council. So we need to remove this layer.

Well Said time4change!!

Representative Council, what a name!! I have not idea about these people nor have I been contacted by these people. If they are not active in connecting or communicating with his/her division then who are they representing?

There should be only one structure, which is board direct accountable to the members. Afterall, members are the owner of the organisation not the board, the CEO, and the executive directors or management. As I said before, the more layer the more opportunities for self agenda or self interest.

Keep fighting and we will get the number in spill motion.

Honestly you couldn't make some of this stuff up.



Also JWheldon a.k.a. Nailgun, I've stolen these Rep Council names and stuck them into the Contact Details thread
