Letters – ICAEW has allayed fears.

As one of the original signatories to the requisition opposing the ICAEW’s regional infrastructure project, and a member of the institute for more than 50 years, I have read your letters page with interest over the past few weeks.

My own opposition to the project was originally founded on a concern that district society office holders might be financially liable should the proposals run over-budget.

The institute has allayed my fears, and I, like many others, have subsequently withdrawn my support for the requisition. I am now satisfied the institute has thought through these plans, and, crucially, consulted with those members who lead our district societies. These plans for the regions have the potential to inject real professionalism into the level of service provision offered to members.

Kenneth Manterfield, FCA former council member, ICAEW.
