CIPFA is inviting their members and students to give their views on the proposed consolidation with ICAEW, at a series of meetings around the country.
The President of CIPFA, Vice President or immediate Past President or a representative will attend these events.
The announcement says that the agenda is deliberately unstructured to encourage a dialogue.
All meetings are hosted by the region in which the meeting takes place.
There is one important point that we should not forget, namely that the membership of CIPFA also have to approve of the merger as well as the membership of the ICAEW.
It would be highly embarrassing for the ICAEW if CIPFA rejected the merger.
One other point that caught my eye on the CIPFA website, is the fact that the CIMA logo is still displayed in the header.
CIMA, you will recall, have pulled out of the current merger plans. Is the inclusion of their logo on the CIPFA site merely an oversight, or has no one told CIPFA that CIMA have pulled out?
