ECU academic appointed to national Superannuation Advisory Committee

Wednesday, 05 March 2008


The Head of Edith Cowan University's (ECU) School of Accounting, Finance and Economics, Associate Professor Marilyn Clark-Murphy, has been appointed to the recently established Superannuation Advisory Committee.

Professor Clark-Murphy was appointed to the Australia-wide Committee on the basis of her extensive experience and leading research in the field.

Established to provide advice to the Federal Government regarding policy and initiatives that effect the superannuation industry, the Committee will meet approximately three times each year.

Out of the 10 individuals appointed to the high-level committee, Professor Clark-Murphy is one of only two academics, and is the only member from Western Australia.

ECU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kerry Cox congratulated Professor Clark-Murphy on her appointment to the Committee, saying it publicly acknowledges her level of skill and experience in the area of superannuation.

"ECU is proud to have a staff member involved in such a pivotal, national committee" he said.

"The appointment of Professor Clark-Murphy to this group recognises the significance of the research she has undertaken in recent years, as well as her high level of engagement with the community."

Attending the Committees' first meeting on Monday, Professor Clark-Murphy said she was impressed and inspired by the open nature of the discussions.

"After an excellent first meeting I am confident that the Superannuation Advisory Committee will have a positive effect on superannuation policy for all Australians", she said.

"I'm excited to be involved in such a groundbreaking initiative in Australia. Not only is the Committee the first of it's kind, but it's also the first time Australia has had a Minister for Superannuation."
