While it was gratifying to see my concerns about the reorganisation of the ICE's Professional Development department reported in the NCE, the report gave the misleading impression that my only concern was the suitability of the individual chosen to run the newly merged 'super-department' of Professional Development, Membership Registry and Human Resources.
The responsibility for the selection of individuals to run departments within Great George Street lies with the senior management of the Institution, and the Graduates and Students National Committee has no brief to challenge these choices.
The GSNC does, however, have proper concerns over any structural changes to the Institution that may directly affect G&S members. The GSNC's legitimate anxiety over the ability of the newly merged departments to deliver the required level of service to the membership is the real issue.
