CA ANZ Disciplinary Bodies seek new members

Nominations open for appointments from August 2022

In brief

  • CA ANZ is calling for new appointees for the 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.
