THE PLANNED radical restructuring of the ICE's approach to communications and the regions is now in operation, putting the emphasis firmly on transparency, unity and delivery.
Two divisions - communications and regional operations - have been brought together with the primary aim of offering an improved, business-like service for both its members and those it seeks to influence.
The initiative has been driven by new vice president for communications Colin Clinton, who in 2004 will become the Institution's youngest ever president.
'Until now there has been a total lack of visibility about what the communications centre is, ' said Clinton. 'Now is the time to be visible.
Clinton will head the new structure in a non-executive role and will also chair a corporate communications group which will work on strategy and policy.
Day to day delivery will be the The team Delivery of ICE communications policies will be the responsibility of director Julien Parrott, with a team of managers empowered to drive their individual areas of responsibility.
They will work alongside the ICE's three executive secretaries and regional liaison officers to ensure the regions have a firm role to play in delivering ICE policy.
