- Rachel Kucharski, a partner at Deloitte in Edmonton, was elected as the newest addition to the CPA Alberta Board; and
- the five proposed bylaw amendments all passed with no less than 97% approval.
- Motions were passed to accept last year’s financial statements and auditor report.
- Collins Barrow Calgary LLP was approved as CPA Alberta’s auditor for next year.
- Minutes of the 2017 AGM were accepted.
The AGM was chaired by Curtis Palichuk, who is beginning his second and final year as CPA Alberta Board Chair. Curtis began by presenting some highlights of CPA Alberta’s work last year, including the implementation of the Varied Registration Model, the transition of CPA Assist into CPA Alberta’s operations, and the building of relationships with external stakeholders.
Curtis’s overview was followed by a CEO update from Rachel Miller, who shared an overview of CPA Alberta’s strategic priorities and membership demographics, as well as sharing the new “Ask a CPA” video series.
