ICAEW defends new Scottish office

The ICAEW has denied reports that its new Scottish group was formed in response to competition north of the border from ICAS.

The Institute Members in Scotland Group was launched at a special even in Edinburgh at which ICAEW president Graham Ward made it clear that the move had not come as a result of increasing competition for students.

The institute said it was an initiative that had arisen spontaneously among members in Scotland, who had come to perceive the absence of a district society in Scotland.

But the founding of the new group may have come as a result of a new feeling at the ICAEW that it should be represented.

During his inaugural speech Ward said it was no longer enough for the ICAEW to just have a London office. ‘We need to be in all major cities. This is why the Institute Members in Scotland group is so vitally important,’ he said.

More than 150 people attended the meeting on Wednesday last week but there are between 1,500 and 2,000 ICAEW members in Scotland who could potentially become involved.
