Chair of the IFRS Advisory Council reappointed
The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation have announced that Joanna Perry has been reappointed as Chair of the IFRS Advisory Council.
The IFRS Advisory Council provides a forum for the IASB to consult a wide range of interested parties affected by the IASB’s work, with the objective of advising the Board on agenda decisions and priorities in the Board’s work, informing the Board of the views of the organisations and individuals on the Council on major standard-setting projects, and giving other advice to the Board or to the Trustees. The Council used to meet three times a year, however, yesterday’s changes to the constitution of the IFRS Foundation saw the numer of meetings of the Council reduced to two a year.
Ms Perry’s second term begins on 1 January 2017. Please see the press release on the IASB website for more information.
