Members Board - Register of Interests
Members of the Members Board must declare any interests that may influence, or may be perceived to influence, their ability to act impartially or objectively in fulfilling their role as a member of the Members Board.
Conflicts of interests
There are many different forms of interest which could create a conflict in a matter being discussed by the Members Board. Some of the main examples are:
- Any financial interest or impact (however small) in an issue under discussion.
- Any prejudice or benefit which may follow the Members Board’s discussion (in respect of the member and/or their employer).
- Discussion of an issue involving or affecting a family member, friend, close associate or work colleague.
Members Board members are reminded that potential and perceived conflicts of interest are as important as actual conflicts. It is crucial that the Members Board is beyond reproach in the eyes of Members, CA Student Members, Affiliates and Firms, as well as the general public.
Interests should be declared in advance of the relevant matter being discussed by the Members Board – either immediately upon becoming aware of the matter, or at the beginning of the meeting.
Depending on the nature of the interest, the Chair may require the member to leave the meeting for the duration of the discussion.
