Cover story

'The priorities to be pursued by the Institution should be: First, providing better career support.

Second, being a calm voice of reason in this increasingly hysterical world. No subs increase is necessary to achieve these objectives.'

'As a member of a branch committee, I am not convinced that the new arrangements for regions and branches are an effective use of resources.'

'Plenty has already been achieved over the past couple of years, but there is plenty more still to be done to raise the profile of the profession.'

'I am now reasonably happy that my regional set up and all associated staffing and costs are not worth any additional subscription money at all.'

'I would like to see the Institution redress the skills shortage by bolstering the image of science and engineering. Currently the national portrayal of engineering is non existent beyond the photocopier maintenance people and Dyson products. The national portrayal of science is resigned to 'boffins' who only reach the media when they produce contradictory information over global warming, meteorite strikes and cloning.'
