CPA Australia is pleased to announce Brian Morris FCPA as our nominee to the Accounting Professional and Ethical Standards Board (APESB). 

Brian joins John Cahill FCPA as CPA Australia’s representative to the APESB and will take up his role from 1 January 2019.

CPA Australia recognises the significance of standard setting in the Australian context, and the important role the APESB plays in developing and issuing high-quality professional and ethical standards for the accounting profession. CPA Australia’s Board of Directors (the Board) welcomes the opportunity to nominate a highly regarded member of CPA Australia to the APESB.

The Member Engagement Committee, under the auspices of the Board, undertook a robust recruitment process to identify the most suitable candidate to represent CPA Australia on the APESB. The Board reviewed the nomination process to ensure that all members had equal opportunity to be considered for the role.

Mr Morris will replace Ms Penny Egan, who is stepping down from the APESB effective from Monday 31 December. The Board thanks Ms Egan for her service.
