ABSTRACT
This article reports on the proposal of the Council of the Institute of Logistics and Transport (ILT) to incorporate the word chartered in the institute's title in Great Britain. At its meeting on February 12, 2004 the ILT Council agreed to a proposal that the title of the ILT be amended to reflect the institute's link with the Royal Charter. If members are in agreement with the recommendation, the title will be adopted immediately following the Extraordinary General Meeting. When the ILT was formed in 1999, its title was adopted in recognition of its then unique position in the area of logistics and transport. Chartered is an important word to describe the standing of a professional body and its members. Quite rightly, many members see chartered status as the most important benefit of membership and the ultimate expression of professionalism in their discipline. To some degree, the institute's present title does not convey that standing clearly and does not do justice to its international connections. If the ballot is in favor of the change, the institute will adopt a pragmatic approach to the practical business of change, such as changing stationery, signage and promotional materials.
