Seemingly the ICAEW is considering turning Scotland into a region, without districts.
The logical consequence of this would be for the current district structures of England & Wales to be restructured into regions.
That at least is what Accountancy Age think.
Herein lies one of the fundamental problems with the current ICAEW structure. The ICAEW was formed in the 19th century and the structure laid down by the "founding fathers" is still in place today; ie districts and a large, cumbersome and unnecessary council.
The ICAEW needs to restructure itself to reflect the realities of the 21st century, rather than the 19th; ie council should be abolished and the districts restructured.
