Yesterday we received news that two treasurer reports to the WIA board have been leaked and having confirmed that these are genuine, they are included below. The first report was written by the then WIA Treasurer, Chris Chapman on 16 February 2016. The second, written by the current WIA Treasurer, Chris Hendry and current Assistant WIA Treasurer, Jeff Tubbenhauer on 18 November 2016.

The reports detail specific concerns about the financial situation of the Wireless Institute of Australia going back to 2015 and make recommendations about future policies and procedures as well as stating "the time has now come for the President to show strong leadership and require that Messrs Harrison and Swainston take the only honourable course and resign as Directors of the WIA".

In related news, the WIA Reform Group has submitted 100 signatures to the WIA to demand a General Meeting which the WIA has now agreed to.

The news this Sunday will contain more information about the unfolding events.
