Meeting 2 of the Sydney Governance and Strategy of CPA Australia discussion group. The main points of discussion here are:
We’ve made a second request. CPA Australia has refused to comply basically because although the Corporations Act says they have to they say it should not be read literally because it could create some mischief. As I said in the video we are only requesting it a second time because we do not believe that it was done correctly the first time around. CPA Australia said they would share their legal advice but they did not share any legal advice in relation to the first response to the section 202B request being compliant. This legal advice in relation to the second request assumes the first one was complied with.
The explanatory memorandum to the second section 202B request:

CPA Australia’s legal advice (in relation to this second section 202B request only):
