Non voting members insult graduates


The ICE website states that the ICE has over 75,000 members worldwide. The result of the recent voting on associate, graduate and technican rights gives the impression that the vast majority of members could not be bothered to vote on this extremely important issue.

As a struggling graduate desperate to get chartered and to become a corporate member, I find it insulting that existing members do not have the ability to tick a couple of boxes and pop an envelope into a post box.

I think that the ICE should start dragging in members' CPD records and see how commited these people really are - perhaps a few rolling heads will focus minds.

To the other 7,000 odd people who did vote one way or the other - thank you very much.
