29 Sep 2008
Professor Peter Green has been appointed as the Queensland representative to the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia's national board from 2009. Peter has been a member of the ICAA for the past 11 years. He was on the Institute's Queensland regional council from 2003-2007 and he was Chairman in 2006. "I became a member of the Institute after being involved in the production of education support modules for subjects in the Institute's Professional Year program in the 1990s" Green explained. "Seeing first-hand the academic rigor of the PY process impressed me greatly and so, when the opportunity arose, I joined the Institute enthusiastically" Green added. The Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (ICAA) has over 58,000 members who work in diverse rolls across industries in as many as 107 countries. It is also a founding member of Global Accounting Alliance, an international accounting coalition with more than 700,000 members. In 2007, Professor Green, along with Business School academics Professor Ian Zimmer and Dr Julie Walker, received a ICAA National Research grant to investigate the costs of auditor independence as a result of the enactment of CLERP9 (Corporate Law Economic Reform Program).
