September 14, 2012: ICAS Research Funding Opportunity: SME funding
It has been suggested that the global credit crisis has meant that small and medium sized enterprises’ (SMEs) access to finance has been significantly curtailed; this, in turn, may limit the potential for growth, employment and the business birth rate in the UK. ICAS is interested in sponsoring research which considers how barriers to SME finance can be reduced. Research proposals are invited to consider relevant issues around SME funding and growth.

May 14, 2012: Revisions to IAAER Constitution
The IAAER Executive Committee has approved sending some proposed revisions to the IAAER constitution to the membership for approval. The proposed revisions will be discussed and voted on at the General Membership meeting on June 20, 2012, in Amsterdam. As required by the constitution, the proposed changes are being presented to the membership at least 30 days before the scheduled vote.
A clean copy of the revised constitution follows this message. A copy with the changes highlighted is can be found by clicking on the link about or here.
Some of the changes are simply editorial. The more substantive ones are the following:
1. Update the types of membership
to better reflect the current situation by adding university and
2. Add a Council. This is a way for the Academic Institutional members to
be more active and have more of a voice.
3. Move responsibility for membership completely from the VP-Administration to the VP-Membership.
4. Combine the VP-Administration and VP-Finance positions. There is much overlap between these two positions, especially with the constraints on where the IAAER bank account can be located.
5. Add the Director of Research and Educational Programs to the Executive Committee and make it possible to pay this person directly. The current DREA is not paid directly, but this flexibility may be needed in the future.
6. Change the nominating committee to include 2 members of Council rather than 2 at-large VPs.
7. Explicitly recognize the possibility of an editor of COSMOS separate from the VP-Communications.
8. Recognize disposal of assets if IAAER were to dissolve.
9. Recognize the incorporation of IAAER in Illinois, USA.

January 17, 2012: CIMA Research Initiative: Leadership
CIMA’s intention is therefore to study leadership in the context of the management accountant and their careers and how they interact with the organization to make change happen. More broadly, CIMA’s intention is also to identify common characteristics across management accountants who do and don’t reach senior levels of management and to identify the prerequisites to reaching those influential positions, as well as the barriers. Most people will not get to CEO level, but nonetheless have the opportunity to lead effectively within their organizations.

Competent and Versatile: How Professional Accountants in
Business Drive Sustainable Success
Professional accountants in business play key roles in organizations—roles that often go far beyond the stereotypical perceptions of accountants. It may not be readily apparent to all employers and business owners, but they can capitalize on professional accountants’ training, knowledge, and skill sets to help guide their organizations toward long-term sustainable success.

Risks: Meeting Expectations
Reporting Business Risks: Meeting Expectations forms part of the Information for Better Markets
thought leadership programme of ICAEW’s Financial Reporting Faculty.
Requirements for businesses to report their risks have now been in place in a number of countries
for some years, and there seems to be a common view that their results have been disappointing.
There is widespread agreement that businesses should report better information about the
risks they face, and this determination has been reinforced by the wish to avoid another global
But before fresh requirements are introduced, we need to understand why good risk reporting
has proved to be so difficult in practice and why risk reporting may prove to be less useful to
investors and other users of corporate reporting than has generally been assumed.
In this report we look at the problems and limitations of risk reporting, but also suggest how
it could be improved.

To see the news release click
The publication is primarily designed to support IFAC and its members (professional accountancy organizations) to promote the value of professional accountants in business to their organizations and more widely—an important mission deliverable for IFAC. In the publication, we have highlighted key areas of competency development for professional accountants aligned to the needs of organizations that employ them. We hope it will be a useful resource to aid the development of qualification, training, and continuing professional development programs to support the changing needs of professional accountants in business.
This publication is hopefully perceived as an important contribution to improving common understanding, within the accountancy profession and beyond, of the work by our colleagues who work in business and the public sector. To help communicate the scope of the roles and activities of professional accountants to non-accountants, and particularly to employers, we have also developed a shorter, brochure-length companion piece.
