Effective July 1, 2015, I was appointed by the Government of Alberta to serve as a public member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Alberta (CPA Alberta) Board of Directors. I previously served on the board of directors for the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta (ICAA), one of three legacy professional self-regulatory agencies that were amalgamated to form CPA Alberta.
The ICAA Council consists of nine elected chartered accountants and three appointed public members and is responsible for fulfilling the mandate set forth in the Regulated Accounting Profession Act (RAPA). All regulations, bylaws, Council resolutions, rules of professional conduct and related guidelines are passed in accordance with this legislation. The ICAA Council is also responsible for setting the strategic direction of the CA profession in Alberta, and is committed to serving the interests of the public and the profession.
