Thumbs up Good or perhaps even excellent merger now on the cards?

After what I regard as very positive meetings that representatives of both Councils had earlier this week with some FIDELIS members, I believe that after almost two years of sometimes very difficult discussions, the UK actuarial bodies may be about to receive a package from Councils which will be a big improvement on previous proposals.

I await the new proposals (due within days) with interest. There will probably be some further discussion needed, but my understanding from the meetings is that Councils really do seem to have taken on board the criticisms made by members and are about to have a much more open and two way process.

PS With regard to one point raised at the meeting on Tuesday with Council members (about how to make use of electronic technology efficiently for any future SGM Requisitions, thus allowing the number of signatures required to be raised from the current 10), please see this thread: http://www.actuarialoutpost.com/actu...d.php?t=186929
