Trustees sought for global standard-setter

Paul Volcker, trustee chairman of the global standard-setting board, is seeking three new trustees to join his board as the International Accounting Standards Committee Foundation grows in stature.

The IASCF, of which Volcker is chief, wishes to appoint three individuals who have a background as a senior corporate executive with international experience.

The candidates will be selected from Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America. They will be appointed for a three-year term.

Responsibilities will include securing financing and oversight of the organisation and making appointments to the various boards and committees under the aegis of the trustees.

Selection will be based on candidates’ commitment ‘to the IASB’s mission as a high quality global standard-setter, be financially knowledgeable, and be able to meet the time commitment’.
