Charter prompt gets good response

OVER 4,000 letters have been sent out by Professional Development to persuade long standing Graduate and Student members to proceed to their Professional Review.

The letter cites the recent bylaw which rules that after 12 years, G&S members transfer to the class of Affiliate. It goes on to suggest that members affected by the bylaw come forward for Review.

Training manager Gareth Jones said: 'Affiliate members pay the same subscriptions as graduates and students and get the same benefits, but we used this letter to motivate candidates who still haven't become chartered.'

Director of Professional Development Richard Larcombe said the letter had helped to identify very high quality unchartered members: 'There are some senior members who may be eligible to proceed directly to Fellowship.

The enforcement of the 12 year rule has been a salutary lesson in terms of promoting the benefits of chartered membership, said Larcombe. 'It has made us realise how much we could improve the promotion of the ICE to its members,' he said.
