Covering Change of Status, People on the Move, Training Materials and National Standards...

Change of Status - ICVA's change of status is now complete and the association is officially a company limited by guarantee.  As a result, the executive committee becomes a management board, giving ICVA members greater security.

People on the Move - We would like to welcome Peter Beaman back on board and look forward to working with him again.  The South West region has changed its regional representative to the Dorset PCC Martyn Underhill , leaving the position of vice-chair vacant.  Sarah Bryant has now been nominated and elected to the position of vice-chair.  Our thanks go to the out-going vice-chair Lorna Muffett for her contribution to the organisation and the executive committee.  

Training Materials - It has been agreed that schemes not in membership, or other organisations wishing to purchase copies of ICVA's new training materials may do so for a fee of £499 (+VAT).  The cost of additional copies to members will be £299 (+VAT).

National Standards - The management board is meeting to consider and approve a draft of the revised national standards following the consultation with ICVs and scheme administrators. We will keep you updated on this process.
