IFAC seeks new board members from inside and outside profession

International accountancy body looks to fill twelve board positions, including three chairs

Accountancy’s international representative body is on the hunt to fill
several key positions across it various boards and committees.

The International Federation of
Accountants
is seeking nominations for a total of twelve positions,
including three chair positions on standard-setting boards. Five of these
positions are open to public members, who do not need an accountancy
qualification but will be expected to have a good knowledge of the work of the
standard setting board they would be on.

IFAC’s aim in bringing in public members is to ‘clearly represent the wider
public interest’ and allay concerns that their standard setting bodies act only
in the interest of accountancy firms.

All nominations must be submitted
online by 15 April.
