ACCA is renowned for censorship. The AGM is a far with the President allowing members to speak for a maximum of only three minutes. ACCA leadership does not even bother to report accurately the proceedings of its stage managed AGM.
the latest example relates to the AGM held on 9th May 2002. The June 2002 edition of the ACCA magazine (supplement, page 11) purports to report "Minutes" of the meeting. The leadership obviously does not know the meaning of the word. The one page report does not report the questions asked at the AGM or the failure of the the leadership to answer them.
The questions raised included matters relating to the business interests
of chief executive Anthea Rose, failure of the ACCA to meet its royal
charter obligations and provide a library for its members, publication
of misleading minutes for the 2001 AGM, failure to publish the results
of the ethnic monitoring survey, abuse of power by ACCA president as he
discussed motions which have not yet been tabled, absence of any information
about lawsuit in India, liability of ACCA members for ACCA's debts, financial
waste, failure to publish a budget and much more. In most cases, the President
failed to answer the questions though on some occasions he was 'hand bagged'
by the chief executive. Members are only given three minutes to speak.
Yet rather than listening and responding, ACCA President and chief executive
were seen to be talking during that time.
