Council unanimously approved the appointment in recognition of Hilary's outstanding services to languages, the IoL Educational Trust and to the Chartered Institute of Linguists over the past 10 years. Under the finance item, Council heard that the Auditors had given an unqualified audit report in respect of the CIOL accounts for 2011/12. I reported that the level of membership was slightly lower than usual at this time of year. There had been a number of resignations, mostly citing financial reasons, but I fully expect growth from new membership in the coming months. Staff from both Membership and the Trust are undertaking a series of promotional visits to schools and universities, including South Thames College and the universities of Westminster, Cambridge and Hull. In addition, we made a good start to the continuing professional development (CPD) programme in January, and we have negotiated with London Metropolitan University a reduced rate for CIOL members to attend its workshops. The DipTrans ran smoothly in January, despite adverse weather conditions; and DPSI enrolments have now commenced. Chair of Council, Keith Moffitt, reported on developments regarding the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) contract. He and other representatives from Professional Interpreters for Justice (PI4J) had met the Minister, Helen Grant MP, and this had been followed by a smaller meeting with MoJ officials. The report on the operation of the contract was due to be released the following week and a seminar was to be held at the UNITE offices on 23 February. (For an update, please see Keith's 'Notes from the Chair of Council' on page 4.) Keith went on to report on the successful recruitment of Ann Carlisle as the new Director of Examinations. Ms Carlisle would start on 11 March. Council was pleased to hear that considerable interest had been generated by the sale of Saxon House and offers would be considered in mid-February. The search for new premises is now well underway.
