Who can attend? Anyone may attend ICSEW meetings, regardless of gender or employment status. See below for attendance requirements for ICSEW representatives.
Attendance Policy for ICSEW Representatives
Regular attendance at committee meetings is essential to ensure that decisions made represent the opinions of the committee as a whole. An ICSEW representative may forfeit their appointment as a result of poor attendance.
Notice of all absences must be provided to the Membership Chair. An absence will be excused when notice is provided at least two days in advance of the meeting AND the representative has arranged for an alternate to attend in their absence.
Two unexcused absences in a row will result in the Membership Subcommittee contacting the representative’s director or equivalent. View the attendance policy 620.0 in our polices and proceedures.
Special note on alternate representative attendance: While attendance is required for regular representatives, alternate representatives may attend all meetings and ICSEW functions with permission from their supervisor.
