CILEX is Changing consultation

Consultation: CILEX is changing – your views will help shape how

This consultation has concluded.

CILEX is conducting a consultation that will determine how it operates into the future.

This consultation marks the latest stage of the ‘CILEX is Changing’ project. We have previously announced the structural reforms which will improve the Institute’s governance, separating out the duties to act in the public interest, in the interests of the profession, and of independent regulation.

We are now moving on to the more granular changes that will affect both what members see of their Institute and the way in which the Institute interacts with them and others. We believe the time is right for CILEX members and stakeholders to offer their expert views, insights and experiences to inform the next stage of development.

Also, to facilitate this next stage, the Bye-Laws that sit beneath CILEX’s Royal Charter will require amendment and it is good practice that this should be shared with members.

We are seeking views on:

  • Whether to move away from the geographical-based election of members to the CILEX Council and replace it with a system of selection and appointment of individuals who have demonstrated they have the right skills and competences for the role.
  • Whether to embed the role of CILEX’s regional branches into the governance structure, and how to enhance members’ involvement with their local branch;
  • What services are most important to CILEX members and how would they like them delivered;
  • What more can be done to engage members in the work of the Specialist Reference Groups that CILEX has developed in recent times;
  • The potential role of ‘Task and Finish Groups’ dedicated to a specific task and then disbanded;
  • What services members would like to see offered online; and
  • Whether to broaden representation within CILEX’s governance structure to members who are not Fellows.
