- That the ICE Council be required to undertake extensive and effective consultation within ICE’s membership at large, and expressly within the UK and International Regions, Special Interest Groups, Expert Panels and Associated Societies on the need for, nature of and details of changes in ICE governance, such that the Institution meets the spirit of the Charities Commission’s Code of Governance for larger charities whilst at the same time meeting the needs and aspirations of the Institution and its membership.
