The Can of Worms

My post last week about my ICAEW membership card for 2013 finally arriving rather opened a can of worms on the ICAEW Linkedin Group.

Others commented that they had not yet received theirs, and it was also noted that the phrase "Chartered Accountant" is missing from the cards.

As Lawrence Edwards said:
"The notices that annual subs were due came out on time - mine was emailed on the 2nd of November. This is pretty basic stuff, the membership card is the only physical contact some members have with the Institute and it leaves a bad impression to send these out so late.

What I find more concerning is the constant above inflation rise in subs, coupled with the plethora of faculties and interest groups which you have to join if you want access to material that's relevant to your industry. I gather that there is rarely even a debate about subs at Council each year

Membership Card Finally Arrives

My ICAEW 2013 membership card finally arrived today.

Why does it take the ICAEW four months to issue its membership cards to its members?
