Standard-setting boards seeking candidates
The Independent Standard-Setting Boards have issued their call for nominations for positions in the year 2017.
The call for nominations comprises 22 opportunities for membership on the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), the International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB), the International Ethics Standards Boards for Accountants (IESBA) and the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB).
"Vacancies on the boards are open for nominations by all stakeholders, including professional accountancy and international organisations, government agencies, firms, and the public," the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) noted in a statement outlining the opportunities on offer.
"Candidates should have knowledge of the subject matters considered by a particular board, as well as English proficiency. Nominations of non-accountants for the public member vacancies are strongly encouraged."
In order to provide nominees and nominating organisations with key insights into the process, the following documents have been made available for revision: Developing a Nominations Strategy and Giving Back to the Profession: The Value of Serving.
"The nominating committee follows an open and transparent process to select the most suitable candidates for the available positions, while also aiming to achieve gender, regional, and professional balance," IFAC concluded.
