Merry Christmas to Peter Wilson. When it was suggested that Peter Wilson should be independent of the old board so that we can have a fresh start Peter responded with "That's your issue". Summary of the meeting here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=594

That letter is brilliant. I liked this bit the best:
Furthermore, the Professional Standards Councils states that a key advantage of operating under a Professional Standards Scheme is that it distinguishes our association and our members as a recognised profession. This goes far beyond the cost of our PI insurance premiums and exposure to significant liability we practising members may face. This goes to the heart of our reputation as a professional association in what is an increasingly competitive market. "it's increasingly difficult for consumers, governments and even aspiring professionals to be able to tell the genuinely professional from the growing field of people claiming to be professional".
