Dear Member,
It is a privilege and great pleasure to send this message to the first news letter of the session 2017/18 as President of the Institution.

Just after receiving my Diploma from Katubedda, I joined ACEDA in 1983. Then, going through IEDSL transition & later as IIESL covering a long period of time I have been given the task of leading the Institution this year. Being in the committee and council of management uninterruptedly in all these institutions I have been contributing at various capacities in its mission. In a way, that itself add more weight on my head in this session.

We are now in a legitimately confirmed base after the implementation of the “Engineering Council act” in the parliament this year, but it is only the start of the victory of long fought battle. INCORPERATED ENGINEERS still have a long way to go. It is our responsibility and the necessity to make the general public aware of the “Incorporated Engineers”.
I have through of a threefold program for this session.

* To begin with it is necessary to support the Diplomates and Associate Members to be upgraded to corporate membership category. To help this process with the help of CPD programs well suited for this category got to be floated. I intend floating these programs in this session. This will support in the growth of Corporate Membership which is the strength of the institution.

* Now that incorporated Engineer in well defined & his position is clearly indicated in the Engineering council act, it is necessary to educate the operational authorities in the governmental and semi governmental sector such as Departments, Corporations, Boards, etc. to implement “Incorporated Engineer” category is the SOR in their establishments. This I consider as an immediate task.

* Obtaining a land for our Institution was also another history & our predecessors had won this battle sometime back. Now we are operating from our temporary building for last three years. My intension is to commence the construction within this session & hope to work on this exercise. Our own headquarters building would add colour to our Engineering Community as well, I guess.

I can achieve these intentions only with the support of my Council of Management, Past Presidents and general membership. Through I am in constant contact with Council of Management, I am very openly inviting general membership to extend your hands whatever possible way to get around helping in above tasks.

I thank you.

Eng.Kithsiri Kottege
