Another glossy date roll by CPA

Objective 1 - Spend marketing dollars to cover our lack of leadership, we should not have to do anything besides tell people we are honest.
Objective 2 - Do nothing but put our name as "partners" of others that actually do something, we can keep an appearance of activity with no effort
Objective 3 - Wow. You currently have 3 kinds of members. Unfriendly, apathetic and those eating from the trough. That will be a big job
Objective 4 - Please let it be true. Considering they have no mention of public practice, taxation or Australia in any of their objectives I am guessing it will be as useless in any case.
Objective 5 - How about we listen to the students? Why is that a lower priority?
Objective 6 - Nothing on the listening to members, just tell them what they need and provide avenues for their feedback. Great conclusion that one.

Nothing has changed, business as usual.
