    6.7% voter turnout!!! Heads should be rolling!

    Is there a "corporate" view of this failure?

    What do the 9 full time IOSH corporate executive gurus (who collectively cost IOSH membership £1million a year) think?

    Is this voter apathy a reflection of the way ordinary IOSH members feel about IOSH governance?

  • I think it might go against

    I think it might go against the 'Ethos' of our wonderful Institute to cut peoples' heads off. What does he expect IOSH to do; threaten their members with excommunication if they do not vote.

    However, he has painted a beautiful picture in my head (that is still on) of all the Executives sitting cross-legged on a veranda. Gurus: Are these not all men; not politically correct.

    6.7% is better than 6.6%

    Kind Regards
