Procedural point

It was with some misgiving that I read the heading in the Briefing section of the current issue of The Proceedings that the ICE was to re-invent its learned society role.

Reading on, I learned that we are to "evolve the historic engineering-board structure into a more dynamic, flexible, output driven format built around the concept of expert panels linked through electronic networks."

In addition, we are to "break down the traditional 'silo' model based on engineering disciplines, and introduce more flexible and dynamic groupings called 'lifed' panels who will deliver short or medium-term project-style deliverables."

So that's all right – I can't think what I was worried about.
