A New Chapter have released an updated position statement regarding recent activity at the RIAS. You can download and read it here.
Reflecting on the ongoing need for change and reform, the document outlines proposals and propositions for the future of the organisation;
"Change: while we note ongoing discussions within RIAS but also, critically,
at Chapter level, we at aNC are clear that change must include:
. a President elected by Members, based on manifestos;
. executive staff and finance roles separated;
. a leaner, executive group of Trustees, with full responsibility assisted by training in their fiduciary responsibilities;
. openness, with full sharing of minutes etc;
. a refocussed profession, with a move forward from the “learned society" status."
