18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Philip Brown Public Lecture: Shareholder votes and the Boardroom : Public Lecture More Information
CPA Australia, together with the UWA Business School and Curtin Business School, proudly presents the inaugural Philip Brown Public Lecture in Accounting with Professor Ralph Walkling.

Corporate directors are the direct representatives of shareholders in the boardroom, yet little is known about the process of electing directors and in particular, the impact of shareholder votes. In a sample of over 2500 director elections Professor Walkling explores several questions. The results are at the same time reassuring, troubling, and surprising. This presentation will be relevant to both academic and practicing accountants and company directors. Professor Ralph Walkling is Visiting Professor at the UWA Business School, Founder and Director of the Centre for Corporate Governance and Stratakis Chair in Corporate Governance and Professor of Finance at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

18:00 - COURSE - Quit Smoking Successfully! : Smoking cessation treatment program More Information
The Robin Winkler Clinic at The University of Western Australia will be conducting a SMOKING CESSATION treatment program commencing on Wednesday 9th October 2013. The group will meet for two hours each week for ten sessions, with an initial assessment session before the group commences and a follow-up session one month after completion.

The Smoking Cessation treatment program combines nicotine replacement therapy with cognitive-behavioural therapy to help people beat the chemical addiction, as well as the addiction to the habit of smoking itself. The majority of people who complete this science-informed group program become non-smokers and are still smoke-free one month after the group has ended.

The group sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6pm-8pm. The fee is $30 per session for a total of $300 (or $225 if paid in total in the first week; i.e. a 25% saving). The initial assessment and follow-up session will also cost $30 each.

If you would like to reserve a place in the next smoking cessation group, or would like more information, please contact the Robin Winkler Clinic on 6488 2644 or [email protected]

14:00 - EVENT - Art After Death Symposium : A half day symposium exploring legal, financial and other issues affecting artists after death Website | More Information
Art After Death

A half day symposium exploring legal, financial and other issues affecting artists after death.

Arranged and supported by The University of Western Australia Law School, The University of Western Australia Cultural Precinct, and Artsource.

An artist’s primary concern is developing their professional practise, in whatever guise that might take. But do artists ever ponder what will happen to their work when they are no longer here? Who will decide where their work can be shown, who can reproduce it and for what purposes can it be copied or used?

Like any other personal property, planning for an artist’s artwork, including who will own the work, administer the artist’s copyright and moral rights, and protect their reputation after death is an important but rarely discussed consideration.

Art After Death provides a unique opportunity to hear from prominent legal, accounting and arts professionals about the issues artists and their professional advisors may need to consider when planning for an artist’s will and estate. Participants will also have the rare opportunity to ask questions and raise issues with the panel during the session.
