The President said that he had very much enjoyed participating in activities in all sections, with the exception that he was unable in his first year to visit the Asia-Pacific Section, though that would be rectified with the Sydney event in March 2016. Not only had be visited sections for dinners, but he had also made a point of making technical presentations to most of them, as well as to events in which the IBD had an interest, such as the SIBA event in Sheffield and the CAMRA AGM in Nottingham. He in particular saluted the Scottish Section and the Africa Section for the outstanding congresses that they had put on.

AOB


  1. Dr D G Taylor asked the Chairman if he could clarify the relationship between the Chair of the Board of Examiners (BoE), the Executive Director and the Council. Dr Taylor was concerned that the recent advertisement for the CEO vacancy implied that the CEO was responsible for IBD qualifications. The Chairman responded that the Chair of the BoE attends Council meetings and is responsible to the Council for the maintenance of the integrity of all IBD professional qualifications. Day to day management of the processes that support the delivery of the qualifications clearly falls within the remit of the ED (CEO to be). Contd.

Mr M Butterworth asked for clarification regarding an item within the income and expenditure reports which referred to the amortisation of intangible assets. Mr L Specterman confirmed that in anticipation of changes within FRS 102 which relate to the treatment of intangible assets, that in the year ended 31st December 2013 the value of such assets had been written down and the resulting charge taken within the accounts for that year.
