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

The AFR 27th Sept 2017 E Tadros The Bigger Picture

Post by Brett Stevenson » Wed Sep 27, 2017 3:43 pm

This is a very helpful article in todays AFR to provide some perspective and context on the CPA fiasco.
Yes, we are not alone in many respects from other NFP membership organisations.
When things get this bad with all the organisations that supposedly guard and uphold high professional standards it seems that perhaps it is time for some legislative action to bring them into line.
Really it is the AFR journalists in particular who see this bigger picture more clearly than most.
Even the CEO of IPA who is now trying to portray IPA as a legitimate alternative for disaffected CPA's was perhaps the most reluctant (and last) to come forward to provide full remuneration. Might be a smart strategic move but comes across as a bit weak to me.
It is almost as if these membership organisations have formed a little 'cartel of similarity' to minimise disclosure to members, to maximise the remuneration for the CEO's, and to put on a show of 'but we are a great organisation' when in reality they are the opposite of being transparent and open.
I reckon Hans Christian Anderson would not struggle to find modern day examples of the Emperors New Clothes amongst this lot.
