Institute crucial vote: support the Olympics?

London_2012Given a quiet moment, TS has been known to happily peruse the ICAEW’s council meeting notes for points of ‘interest’. Yes, it is true we do work sometimes.

Suffice to say, the when browsing through the notes for June we found it contained a right corker that must be shared. Council member David Chitty proposed that the president at the time, Paul Druckman, should convey the institute’s support for London’s successful bid to host the 2012 Olympics. Imagine TS’ surprise that such an innocent proposal should be held to vote. Even more surprisingly, three council members voted against it – spoilsports.

A separate glance at the spiel on the ICAEW’s library services revealed that the most borrowed book among members in 2004 was ‘Preparing Company Accounts’. TS still hasn’t decided whether that’s a good thing or not.
