Chair of advisory group to IAASB reappointed

James Dalkin has been reappointed as the chair of the Consultative Advisory Group (CAG) to the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), effective 1 October 2020. His reappointment, approved by the Public Interest Oversight Board, follows his election by IAASB CAG members at its September 2020 meeting.

The CAG is an independent body comprising regulators, preparers, international investor and user groups, and other stakeholders with an interest in international auditing and assurance. Dalkin’s role as chair is to ensure the CAG’s views are included in IAASB’s deliberations.

Commenting on his appointment, Dalkin said: “It is an honour to be re-elected by my colleagues to lead the IAASB CAG. Recognising the ongoing review of the IAASB’s governance and operating arrangements, I look forward to the challenges and opportunities in continuing to serve the public interest in this capacity.”

IAASB chair Tom Seidenstein said: “Under Jim’s leadership, the CAG worked effectively and provided valuable input to the IAASB’s standard-setting activities. I look forward to continuing our constructive working relationship as we execute our strategy and strive to serve the public interest.”
