The SMSF Association has announced the appointment of self-managed super fund (SMSF) specialist adviser and Brisbane law firm, Cooper Ward, partner, Scott Hay-Bartlem, to its board from 1 July.

He would be the third specialist adviser to join the board in the past month, it said.

Hay-Bartlem, who was a chartered tax adviser and member of the Society of Trust and Estate practitioners, had a record of service to the SMSF sector, including a role as a valued presenter to its Technical Day events and National Conference.

Tracey Scotchbrook, vice chair of the West Australian Local Community, and Michael Houlihan, chair of the Victorian Local Community for the past four years, joined the board on 1 June.

“This appointment, when coupled with the recent appointments of Tracey and Michael, gives the association a strong and diverse board boasting a broad range of skills and experiences that will allow us to better meet the needs of members and tackle the policy challenges facing the SMSF sector,” Association chair, Deborah Ralston, said.

Hay-Bartlem said that he had always believed in the crucial role the SMSF Association played in advancing the interests of the SMSF sector.
