Volunteer Opportunity – Private Enterprise Advisory Committee

Do you have an in-depth knowledge of accounting standards for
private enterprises and of their application?

Are you interested in helping improve accounting standards for private enterprises?

If so, the Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) needs you on its Private Enterprise Advisory Committee!

The Committee assists the AcSB by advising it on improvements to accounting standards for private enterprises. The Committee also provides advice to the AcSB on managing the accounting standards for private enterprises (for example, advising on the timing of changes to standards and the process of communicating changes with stakeholders).

Committee members are from a variety of backgrounds, including preparers, users and accounting practitioners involved with private enterprise financial statements and from various geographical locations.

Requirements

The Committee aims to reflect the broad diversity of private enterprises. Committee members are expected to have an in-depth knowledge of accounting standards for private enterprises and of their application in practice.
Preference will be given to users of private enterprise financial statements in order to maintain a balance of member backgrounds. 

Commitment

Committee members are expected to prepare for and participate in:

  • four one-day meetings per year; and
  • occasional short interim teleconferences.

Appointments are generally for a three-year term, renewable for one additional term.

Out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed. The working language of the Committee is English.
