It is my great pleasure to be elected as Chairman of the AMC for session 2018/2019. 

The AMC is formed by a group of Associate Members from different disciplines. We have been successfully organizing seminars, technical visits and other learned society activities to serve our members. I appreciate and thank our AMC team members who provided great support in holding the events in last session. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to Mr. Benjamin LAM, the awardee of the HKIE President’s Award 2018, who has organized over 150 seminars, visits and delegations since he participated in AMC in 1999.  I promise that our team will continue to contribute our earnest efforts in providing even better services to our members in this session.

A task force was set up to promote AM. We will continue to lobby the Government, Quasi-government and large organization to recognize AM qualification as a preferred job requirement in recruiting front line middle management and supervisory staff. Recent incidents in MTRC projects and Hongkong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge indicate that competent front-line management and supervisory staff play a key role in implementing a successful project. I believe AMs could take up this important mission. At the same time, we will continue to seek voting right for AMs in HKIE so as to enhance the professional status of AM and help us to solicit more AMs.

For the success of AMC, I would urge all Associate Members to participate actively in AMC activities and functions, provide us with your valuable suggestions and feedbacks, and try to find the time to join AMC and become our future leaders.
