Change frustration drives out Rogers

INSTITUTION VICE president Peter Rogers resigned in May after just six months in the post. He vacated his Council seat in frustration at ICE's 'inherent old-fashioned style'.

His resignation follows similar recent criticisms of the ICE's organisational structure by another vice president, Mark Whitby .

'There is a huge bureaucracy to clear up at the Institution and I simply haven't the time to give it what it needs, ' Rogers told NCEI .

However, he backed the work being done by ICE President George Fleming and chief executive Mike Casebourne who he said were addressing the issue. But he added: 'I don't like being the weak member of the team.

It is better for the Civils to move in someone else with time to make the changes happen.'

ICE President Fleming said: 'We do want change as quickly as we can, but we must move forward together. This allows the consensus to develop and ensures that changes have the widest support among our membership.'

Rogers said: 'I am still proud to remain a member of the ICE, which I am pleased to say is now beginning to focus on its future role in leading and supporting its members.'
