“The search for a public member for the International Accounting Education Standards Board is part of the broad-based and transparent IFAC nominations process designed to identify the most qualified candidate,” IFAC President Graham Ward said in a prepared statement. “All members of the IAESB are required to sign a declaration committing to act with integrity and in the public interest in their role within the IFAC.”

Individuals, organizations, accountancy firms, and IFAC member and regional accountancy bodies may submit nominations for the public member. Nominees must have an appropriate level of knowledge about the work of the board, although they need not have a professional accountancy designation. Public members are, however, expected to act in the public interest and must be seen to be independent of any special interests and seen to be acting to represent society as a whole.

The IAESB develops standards and guidance on pre-qualification education, training, and continuing professional development for all members of the accountancy profession. The board’s standards are designed to promote consistency and quality in education and development for professional accountants and prospective professional accountants.

The Call for Nominations on the IFAC’s website offers more information, including expected time commitments. Organizations and individuals interested in submitting candidates may do so through the electronic Candidate Information Form.
