    Call for Nominations Issued—Candidates Sought for Independent Standard-Setting Boards

    The Call for Nominations for the Independent Standard-Setting Boards in 2015 was issued today. The Call for Nominations outlines the upcoming opportunities for membership on the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB), International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA), and International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB).

    In 2015, there will be 22 vacancies on the independent standard-setting boards, including the IAESB chair. All vacancies are open for nominations by all stakeholders, including professional accountancy and international organizations, governmental agencies, firms, and the public. Although each candidate is ultimately selected on the basis of experience, nominations of highly-qualified candidates from the Africa-Middle East and Latin America regions are particularly encouraged.

    The Call for Nominations includes detailed information on qualifications, including time commitment and performance expectations for volunteers, as well as instructions on how to apply during the nominations period, which runs from January 15 to March 15, 2014.

    Nominations can be submitted through the Nominations Database (instructions on how to submit a nomination are included in the Call for Nominations). Additional information on the Nominating Committee and its transparent, open process is available on the Nominating Committee web pages.
