EVEN STEVENS AT CIPFA COUNCIL

The annual council election at the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) has this year resulted in 11 men and 10 women members being voted to serve on CIPFA's governing body. Four additional officers - two men and two women - were already known before the elections.

With just under 25% of CIPFA members voting this year, Jaki Salisbury, chief executive of Mid Bedfordshire DC, and Jane Cuthbertson, chair of the CIPFA National Student Forum (NSF) and senior auditor at North Tyneside Council, become the two 'new' female members voted onto council. Ms Cuthbertson is already a member of council having been coopted in the current year because of her role as NSF chair. Ms Salisbury returns after a year's absence and Ian Perkin returns after three years.

The CIPFA council filled its quota of eight local government members, two health members and nine 'other' members. The last category this year includes representatives from central government, education, the charity sector, consultancy and postal services.

As nominations did not exceed the number of places available in the statutory external audit category, Caroline Gardner and Caroline Mawhood were elected unopposed.

Mike Barnes becomes CIPFA president at the AGM in Brighton on 17 June following CIPFA's annual conference. Diane Colley, chief executive and chief finance officer of Rugby BC, will succeed him as vice president.

CIPFA president Hilary Daniels said:

'I welcome everyone back to council this year and am delighted that Jane Cuthbertson has been elected in her own right. I appreciate the time and effort that CIPFA members have put into voting in their council.'
