My thanks to Kamran, who sent me the following message:
"It has recently come to my notice that members of a UK based professional body are already using the MICA designatory letters.
The name of the body is the International Compliance Association - ironically the abbreviation for this body is also ICA.
Their website is at www.int-comp.org
We are now going ahead with a vote to form an Institute whose name is undecided, and whose members will use designatory letters of some other Institute.
This goes to show how ill planned this merger is.
It is like sitting for exams without any prior homework or revision!"
VOTE NO TO THIS MERGER OR ELSE LETS FORM A BREAKAWAY INSTITUTE!
Kamran Sekha, ACA, CPA"
As Kamran says, this is another example of how the merger has not been properly thought through.
