Grad tidings?


I was extremely disappointed to read in NCE of 13 October that there is such apparent discontentment and disillusionment among the Graduates & Students National Committee (GSNC) and its members regarding the role of the committee in the ICE.

As a past chairman of the committee, it saddens me to read that 'less than half of the 50 members' are attending the meetings. GSNC members should be attending every meeting with feelings of pride and honour to be representing the graduate and student members from their regions.

The role of the GSNC is an extremely important one in the ICE. It should be considered as the equivalent of Council for the graduate and student membership. Maybe this is the type of forum that they should think of themselves as?

I do not think that GSNC should be scrapped, but it needs to be seen to be doing more for the graduate and student membership.
