The appointment by CPA Australia of a panel to review claims relating to the use of CPA Australia members’ funds has been welcomed by the nation’s peak professional body, the Australian Councel of Professions.
ACoP President Brenda Aynsley OAM said this action to address claims and criticisms made by some CPA members was an appropriate response. “It’s important for CPA Australia and its members that the review addresses these matters and ensures that both members and the public continue to have confidence in the accounting profession and in all professionals working in any capacity in our community,” Ms Aynsley said. “Professions Australia as the peak body for professional associations works with our members to encourage the highest professional standards by all professionals and continued good governance on the part of organisations working to protect the public.”
