Events Advocates CEIR and IAEE Consolidate Governance

first_imgThe unofficial alliance between two iconic event-industry organizations strengthened this week with the announcement that CEIR and IAEE will combine their top management at the end of January. Over the past decade, CEIR and IAEE have maintained a strategic relationship, so this move mostly formalizes and streamlines a longstanding partnership. Breden has worked as managing director of CEIR since 2006, when IAEE took over the day-to-day operations of the foundation from outside contractors. The chairperson-elect of IAEE — soon to be Daniel McKinnon — will serve as the chairperson of the CEIR Foundation board of directors. Aaron Bludworth, the current chair of CIER, will serve on the IAEE board for at least one year to help with the transition. CEIR CEO Brian Casey will leave the organization, and CEIR operations will be headed up by Cathy Breden, COO of IAEE. The move was made to “simplify governance, fundraising and administrative responsibilities,” according to a statement from the two organizations.  center_img Despite the unified governance, the two organizations will remain financially sovereign, and CEIR will retain its nonprofit status. Research director for CEIR, Nancy Drapeau, will remain in her position, and a CIER project manager will be hired to work with Drapeau and Brenden. CEIR — the Center for Exhibition Industry Research — long noted for its deep library of event-industry trends and economic research, will now share a board of directors with the International Association of Exhibitions and Events, the largest association for the tradeshow industry. last_img read more

ICICI Bank Reduces Base Rate to 97

first_imgPrivate sector lender ICICI Bank on Thursday has reduced its base rate by 5 basis points (bps) to 9.7 percent with effect from 26 June, 2015. The bank’s new rate is equal to that of State Bank of India (SBI).ICICI Bank, which is India’s second largest bank in terms of market capitalization, had cut its base rate by 25 bps to 9.75 percent in April this year. Many banks had announced similar cuts in base rates in response to 25 bps cut in repo rate by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) at its 2 June meeting.The first was SBI, which announced a 15 bps cut in base rate to 9.7 percent.Overall, the RBI has reduced the key rate by 75 bps since the beginning of the year.On 12 June, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley held a meeting with chiefs of various banks, asking them to pass on the benefits of the recent rate cuts by RBI to end users.Bank credit growth, a major indicator of economic growth, slowed to a two-decade low in the fiscal year ending March 2015. In 2014-15, credit growth was up 9.52 per cent, down from the 13.83 per cent increase in 2013-14.Bankers cite continued tight liquidity conditions and poor uptake in credit growth as reasons for the absence of higher cuts in lending rates.”With effect from July 1, 2010, interest rates on new loans and advances, including consumer loans, are determined with reference to I-Base (ICICI Bank Base Rate),” ICICI Bank said in a statement.last_img read more

Meghan Markle being treated the same as this controversial Royal the Palace

first_imgMeghan MarkleGetty ImagesIt looks like Meghan Markle is being put through the ringer, just like Princess Diana was. The Duchess of Sussex faces the same gruelling treatment upon entering the Royal Family as Princess Diana, with both failing to get any training on life as a royal, according to Princess Diana’s former butler.Meghan Markle will have received no training upon entering the Royal Family in 2018 when she married Prince Harry in a lavish Windsor Castle ceremony, according to royal commentator Paul Burrell. And we have to say, that might just be the case as Meghan Markle has been dubbed “Duchess Difficult” by many, including the Royal staff. What the former Hollywood star may need is proper training to become a Royal. As being a celebrity and being a Royal are not the same thing.Reportedly Paul Burrell worked with Diana from 1987 until her death in 1997 and revealed she received very little training to prepare her for royal life. Mr. Burrell spoke to Yahoo’s Royal Box. When asked what training Meghan would have received after marrying into the Royal Family, he said: “Would you believe there is no rulebook. There is no etiquette lesson. There are no advisers…..Nobody prepares people coming into the Royal Family.”  Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle has already rubbed quite a few people the wrong way with her disregard for Royal rules and protocols. When asked whether Meghan will have to “tone down” her beliefs as a royal, Mr Burrell replied: “Yes, of course. What comes with maturity is a set of beliefs and they don’t always sit well with the Royal Family.”But it looks like that is something Meghan Markle won’t be doing. As the Duchess of Sussex got her independence when the couple Sussex split from the Royal household. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved to Frogmore Cottage to raise baby Archie away from the Palace. Meghan Markle already seems to be carving her own path as a Royal.last_img read more
