Dennis Howlett has suggested that the ICAEW should set up their own blog or public forum, where members of the ICAEW could post their views on issues that concern them and hold the ICAEW (in particular the executive) to account for their actions.
I think that this is a very good idea.
However, I don't think that it stands a cat in hells chance of happening.
The ICAEW, during the merger debacle, showed that they did not wish to be held to account; they most certainly did not respond to any of the emails that I sent them about the merger.
Do you really think that they will allow their actions and policies to be opened up to public debate and discussion, and openly engage with the membership?
