Wider influence

It is fundamental that ICE must become a 'broader church', stressed Cockshaw. 'It is very important we broaden membership.'

He blasted away any fears that widening membership would lower standards. 'It doesn't mean we need to prostitute excellence in all that we do.' A broader membership will give the Institution much greater power. 'We will then be able to punch our way more effectively.' ICE would carry more influence with government, overseas and with other institutions, said Cockshaw.
