This article discusses changes made to the Institute of Management Services. 2005 has seen the institute implement the life membership strategy overwhelmingly endorsed by the membership at the annual general meeting. This, together with the head office outsourcing, has enabled the council to substantially reduce the annual cost of administration. The Spring 2005 issue of the Journal of Management Services is the first one produced by Deesons, who were the preferred company for outsourcing. Dominic Deeson, the managing director of Deesons, intends producing a journal Website which will complement the publication and provide a focal point for members as well as being a repository for items of interest between journals. More than half of its members have personal computers or access to them at work and the council will be hopefully offering members the choice of receiving the journal by post or electronically. A working party is well on the way to completing the review of the institute Web site. While this has served the council well it wants to further improve the site so it can become a comprehensive reference point for research, archives and membership interaction. A decision to outsource the education process, while retaining responsibility for quality, is well on the way to being implemented.
