Members

The Committee consists of:

  • a Chair, who is appointed by the AcSB; and
  • 15 to 25 other members with a range of backgrounds and experience, including preparers, users, and accounting practitioners involved with private enterprise financial statements.

Members are generally appointed for a three-year term and are eligible for reappointment. Members are expected to have an in-depth knowledge of the accounting standards for private enterprises and of their application in practice.

Meetings

The Committee normally meets four to six times a year. Meetings are not open to the public. A summary of discussions of each Committee meeting will be made available shortly after each meeting.
