The CB:PSB governance structure continues to evolve and, as such, during 2016 a new Stakeholder Forum has replaced the existing Advisory Panel. The Stakeholder Forum will engage with a broader range of ‘end users’, providing an opportunity to cascade information and, more importantly, to seek feedback, opinions and advice. Professor Robin Jarvis, formerly Chair of the Advisory Panel and Professor of Accounting, Brunel University, will Chair the Stakeholder Forum.
