WCIT Royal Charter is carried
WCIT clerk Michael Grant carried the Royal Charter through the City of London. The WCIT had to go through a rigorous process of due diligence in the run-up to the ceremony. The Royal Charter is analogous to a business becoming a limited company – it incorporates the Worshipful Company, and removes personal liability from its members. But more importantly, the charter is expected to help WCIT with its fund-raising activities.
The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists (WCIT), the City of London’s 100th livery company, celebrates its receipt of a Royal Charter.
WCIT has more than 750 members who volunteer their services to raise money for good causes. Prominent members include Microsoft founder Bill Gates, internet pioneer Vint Cerf, and Sir Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the world wide web. WCIT is supporting a range of charitable projects, including raising money to support an academy school in Hammersmith, London, that will be equipped with the latest technology.
