Stake Holding (investments)
Your investment in the profession is what defines you as a leader. Client confidence and public trust translate into higher representation rates, this is what defines you as a leader in the profession. If you have a board or members who runs ICCRC with neither of these two qualities, you end up operating an institution with a pyramid structure.
MOST RCIC’s who are associated with the operations of ICCRC and most of the members of the board lack these two basic qualifications:
- Stakeholding through investment: When you invest in Office, Staff, operational platforms, advertising and other investments in the profession, it shows commitment to the profession and it shows true stakeholding. Currently “Most or ALL” RCIC’s associated with the Board would rather invest in Stock Market or Real Estate. This shows the “state of affairs” in the Profession. This shows who the true leaders of the Immigration profession are.
- Stakeholding through Client Confidence and Public Trust: This phrase is demonstrated in the “Representation Rates” of the member. Low Representation Rates in relation to Practice platform demonstrates a fail grade.
In my view over 80% of our “Leaders” operate with a Fail Grade! We are currently being led by a group of people who are moving away from “Consulting”. We should not forget the term ‘Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant”
