Full steam ahead on ICE vote - Casebourne

Letters

On 12 September, the Council debated in depth then voted:

Overwhelmingly for the proposal that MICE embrace CEng and IEng qualifying in future; that is with four or three year degrees as before Against a referendum of the membership, having listened to and debated Roger Sainsbury's argument as outlined in his letter (NCE last week).

As well as a very comprehensive paper prepared by its working group, the Council noted the 71% ballot majority in favour of corporate status for AMICE, and the reported fact of approval of the new proposal from most local association committees, chairmen and secretaries.

We have consulted widely, but have moved quickly. It would be wrong to slow down progress into the 21st century.

Mike Casebourne, ICE, Chief Executive & Secretary, 1 Great George Street, London SW1
