The SMSF Association has drafted a new specialist board member, Scott Hay-Bartlem, who is the third new member to be appointed by the body in the past month.

The SMSF Association has appointed Scott Hay-Bartlem as a new board member, the third specialist to join the association’s board in the past month.

The appointment of Hay-Bartlem, an SMSF specialist adviser who will join the board on 1 July, comes after Tracey Scotchbrook and Michael Houlihan joined the board on 1 June.

SMSF Association chair Dr Deborah Ralston said: “It’s extremely pleasing to have another specialist adviser join the board, especially as Scott brings a distinguished record of service to the SMSF sector.”

“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.”

A partner at Brisbane law firm Cooper Grace Ward, Hay-Bartlem is also a chartered tax adviser and member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, specialising in tax, superannuation and estate planning.

“It’s a rare honour to join the SMSF Association board. I have always found my involvement with the association to be extremely fulfilling, believing it plays a crucial role in advancing the interests of the SMSF sector, so to be invited to join the board is both exciting and humbling,” he said.

“I look forward to working with Deborah and the other board members to enhance the interests and goals of the association and the wider SMSF community.”

Earlier this year, the association also appointed former Labor MP and financial services and superannuation spokesman Bernie Ripoll to replace outgoing board member Cath Mulcare.
