Are you seeking an exceptional opportunity that combines your understanding of the public interest role of accountancy with your desire to make a difference on a global stage? The high-quality international standards that underpin the global accountancy profession are developed by the independent standard-setting boards, for which today’s Call for Nominations for 2018 is released.
The Call sets out 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).

Although each candidate will ultimately be selected based on experience, nominations of highly qualified candidates from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America are strongly encouraged.
