CA ANZ Disciplinary Bodies seek new members

Nominations open for appointments from August 2024

In brief

  • CA ANZ is calling for new appointees for the Australian Disciplinary Bodies, including the Professional Conduct Committee and Disciplinary Tribunal
  • Both CA ANZ members and non-members are being sought
  • Current members say their terms have been a great opportunity to contribute to the maintenance of high standards in the profession

The disciplinary panels, and their members, are a pivotal part of the success of CA ANZ’s conduct and discipline program.  The program investigates complaints against members and makes disciplinary decisions in relation to their conduct. The panel members are the decision makers in relation to all complaints and disciplinary matters and are crucial to upholding the high standards of the profession of chartered accountancy.  Each panel is a mixture of CA ANZ members and members of the public.  

CA ANZ’s disciplinary panels are made up of people with a diversity of skills and personal and professional background.  Panel members can be located anywhere in Australia.

This is a rewarding role with the important function of enforcing professional standards and ethical behaviour in CA ANZ members.

Simon Wallace-Smith FCA is the current Chair of the CA ANZ Disciplinary Tribunal, having been involved with the disciplinary bodies for about a decade.  He explains that “my role on the Disciplinary Tribunal has enabled me to contribute back to CA ANZ, ensuring our organisation maintains the highest professional standards that the members and the public expect”.  Kevin Neville FCA, current Chair of the Professional Conduct Committee, says that “being a member of the Professional Conduct Committee is an exciting opportunity to be actively involved in the important CA Disciplinary process. I would encourage committed and skilled CA’s to put themselves forward. It is extremely rewarding”.

Members of the disciplinary panels are generally appointed for a three-year term, with option for re-appointment. Interviews will be taking place in May 2024 for consideration by the Professional Conduct Oversight Committee and CA ANZ Board prior to appointment commencement by 1 August 2024.
