Abstract:

Professional work is facing significant forces for change which, as suggested by futurists, threaten the dominance of professionals in our lives. The paper examines the extent to which professional associations in the UK are responding to changes and preparing their members for the future. The nature of professional power and status is explored before an analysis of findings is presented. It is argued that while many professional associations have begun discussions about their plans for the future, a more purposeful and strategic approach is required, based on a re-view of their status as learned societies.
