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

AFR 13th Dec 2017 Link between CPA Australia and Peter Wilsons AHRI

Post by Brett Stevenson » Wed Dec 13, 2017 4:41 pm

All pretty self explanatory.
I shall also attach the pages from the AHRI October 2016 monthly magazine in the next post so you can decide for yourself.
A partnership they were happy to broadcast to the 'world' in their monthly magazine in Oct 2016 yet now in Dec 2017 (when it as exposed) saying not on any more and hardly knew Alex Malley.
You make up your own mind.
One thing is for sure we now have two of the directors of AHRI now on the board of CPA Australia after a supposedly extensive search.
Just a wee bit too coincidental in my book.

The one research output, a joint research project, "Ethics in Business", that used the member
databases of both bodies was released in July under AHRI's brand only. Mr Wilson said that
marked the effective end of the co-operation agreement between CPA and AHRI.
So AHRI was running an ethics in business research project with CPA while board members were quitting, the CEO was terminated and the place was falling apart. No wonder they branded it without CPA. Aligning a project on Ethics with people running CPA through that period speaks volumes about the ethical position he comes to CPA with.

Yeah that is a good point. Researching ethics with the old board during their downfall and then going on to actually publish it. So credible, NOT.

"" Mr Wilson said the rebel CPA members calling for him to step down wanted to keep the accounting body in "a permanent state of destabilisation" and vowed that he would not be "dragged backwards on little pieces of minutiae". ""

Oh Lord, here we go again.
Its just a few pesky rebel members trying to ruin it for everybody. Straight out of the Malley ABC TV interview....really??
Little pieces of minutiae.... does the difference between a 2 or a 3 fall into the same category, in his mind, when we look at termination payouts? A non-issue as well, huh?

In hindsight it is unsurprising that we ended up with a conflicted Chairman and board member, because CPA basically applied the same broken, biased selection processes that got us into this mess in the first place. Anyone who has studied ethics, and an organisation that pretends to champion ethics, ought to know better. One of the key mantras in ethics training is "would your actions pass the "front page of the newspaper" test?". The way the last Board handled the growing pressure from members makes it clear they didn't understand this at all, and neither does our new Board, or they would have understood the consequences of appointing these people given their background. Think back to the creation of the IRP: Sir Angus Houston may well be a man of great integrity - I am in no position to argue - but I reckon he understood this key mantra of ethics, and so excused himself.
