Royal Charter, By-laws and Admission Regulations Resolutions
As well as voting in the Council Election, members also voted on six resolutions affecting the ICE's Royal Charter, By-laws and Admission Regulations.
Resolutions 1, 2 and 3
These were proposed changes to the Royal Charter, By-laws and Admission Regulations to re-designate Associate Members as Non-Corporate Members. The change will enable the ICE to embrace individuals and organisations operating in the built environment. Over 82% voted in favour of resolutions 1, 2 and 3.
Resolutions 4 and 5
These were proposed amendments to the Royal Charter and By-laws to permit the use of designatory letters by Graduate members. The change will ensure that Graduate Members have comparable benefits to the new 'knowledge-pathway' Associate Members. Over 73% voted in favour of resolutions 4 and 5.
This was a proposed amendment to Admission Regulation 3 to align the requirements for those seeking Technician Membership with the requirements already set for those applying as Fellows and Members. 91% voted in favour of this resolution.
The changes to the Royal Charter and By-laws are subject to approval by the Privy Council.
