The ICAEW has written to all its members today, to tell us that has hired MORI to conduct research into why the consolidation vote failed.
"Equally we need to understand why the minority who voted 'no' did so in order that we can regain your support for what we are trying to achieve as a professional body. Over the next few weeks we will be working with MORI on a short piece of member research which will examine why you voted as you did in order to help us with this analysis."
I wonder how much this research will cost, and why it is needed now that the merger issue has been finally put to rest?
Good money after bad!
