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

Does the review panel pass the independence test??

Post by jendalitz » Tue Jun 20, 2017 11:09 am

On Friday CPA Australia Chair, Mr Jim Dickson, announced an independent review had begun “to conduct a thorough review of all claims made in relation to CPA Australia.”

Air Chief Marshal Sir Angus Houston AK AFC (Ret’d) former Chief of the Australian Defence Force, and Mr Ian McPhee AO PSM FCPA, a former Auditor-General for Australia, will lead the review panel.

Both of these leaders are published supporters of CPA Australia CEO Alex Malley, having contributed to the foreword of Mr Malley’s book, The Naked CEO.

Do you feel these panel members pass the standards of independence expected of the accounting profession?

There has been quite a bit of discussion on the CPA Australia Member Group on LinkedIn about this so I thought it appropriate to take a survey of members to ascertain our own position on this. It's a simple one-pager on Survey Monkey - will take no more than 10 seconds to complete.
