MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION - 2016

Are you concerned about the narrowness of public choices? Are you concerned about the way organised interests have colonised the public space to advance their narrow interests? Are you concerned about the excesses of insolvency practitioners, audit failures, lack of democracy at work, poverty wages, failures of regulators, government departments and corporate misconduct? Do you wish that someone would challenge the prevailing orthodoxies, disseminate competing views and develop alternative policies?

To facilitate wider dialogue and to give visibility to the issues which are marginalised, the Association for Accountancy & Business Affairs (AABA), a non-profit making company limited by guarantee (company number 3480632) has been registered. Its principal objects are:

(i) to advance the public interest by facilitating critical scrutiny of commercial and non-commercial organisations inter alia companies, partnerships, sole traders, public bodies, local authorities, charities, non-profit making organisations and any other form of commercial or non-commercial organisation;
(ii) to facilitate critical scrutiny of professional bodies, regulatory bodies, employer organisations, employee organisations, government departments and business organisations;
(iii) to campaign for such reforms as will help to secure greater openness and democracy, protect and further the rights of stakeholders and to make disclosures where necessary;
(iv) to engage in education and research to further public awareness of the workings, the social, political and the economic role of accountancy and business organisations.

AABA is an independent organisation. It is not an advisory body. It is not a commercial organisation and does not seek any commercial sponsorship. It is devoted to broadening public choices. It will publish pamphlets, papers and commentaries to advance alternative analysis and public policy reforms. It is funded entirely from donations, subscriptions and the sale of publications. Help us to make the world a better place. Please help us by making a generous donation.  Join AABA. The annual subscription for each calendar year is only £10 and you will receive all AABA publications published during the year,  free of charge. AABA members can also purchase additional copies at substantial discounts.
