A broader issue for Hume with FASEA is realigning it to serve the interests of the government and the public. FASEA has been given free rein to implement the government's legislation and they have clearly stuffed it up. Not only are they way behind in implementation timeframes, they have been riven with commercial course provider conflicts that have led to excessive study requirements for advisers. Conflicts which may well result in a messy corruption enquiry.
Hume needs to clean out the FASEA Board, particularly those with connections to commercial course providers, and force FASEA to simplify the education requirements for advisers to those envisaged by the original legislation.
