ICE MEMBERS this week got the chance to vote on the by-law changes proposed by the Future Framework Presidential Commission (NCE 25 February).
Institution chief executive Mike Casebourne has written to members outlining the changes and urging them to express their views. Members have until 2 June to respond to the proposals, which would result in changes to the ICE's Royal Charter.
Changes to the by-law cover a range of subjects. These include:
allowing Technician Members to use the designation TMICE.
recognising Associate and Technician Members as 'professionally qualified'.
allowing unemployed graduates entry to Membership.
allowing Council Members to serve two consecutive terms.
The ICE has created a 'frequently asked questions' section covering the proposed changes on its web site (www.ice.org.uk).
