ICAS CEO encourages Members to cast their vote on proposed governance changes
CEO Bruce Cartwright CA has encouraged Members to vote on the proposed changes to ICAS governance processes and help shape the future of their Institute.
In May 2018 Council determined that there should be a full review of the ICAS governance processes to ensure that they represented best practice corporate governance, were reflective of the diversity of ICAS Members and were fit for purpose.
The first phase of the review, chaired by Council member Philip Johnson, made 47 recommendations which were endorsed by Council in March 2019. The consequent amendments to the Rules and General Regulations were approved in their entirety by you, the Members in April 2019.
During the second phase, further recommendations, including changes to the way in which Office Bearers are appointed, and enabling Council to remove Members of Council in certain situations, were proposed to Council by the Governance Group. These were also endorsed by Council over the course of the past year. Council is now recommending them to you for approval and has called a Special General Meeting on 30 November for this purpose.
If you have any questions, please contact Frances Horsburgh, the ICAS Secretary, at email@example.com.
