In view of the current surge of COVID-19 cases and the health and safety of members and staff, the Institute has decided to postpone the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) and the 48th Annual General Meeting (48th AGM) scheduled to be held on 6 August and 28 August 2020 respectively.  The Institute will reschedule both the EGM and the 48th AGM when the epidemic situation is easing.


On a related note, as of the nomination deadline (i.e. 27 July) for the Election of Eight Members to the Council, the Institute has not received any new nominations apart from the retired eight Council Members standing for re-election.  Since the candidates running for election are not more in number than the vacancies, no polling will be needed.  The eight persons so running for election shall, as from the 48th AGM, be deemed to be duly elected members of the Council.


The Secretariat staff members will continue to work from home until further notice.  Should you need any assistance, please contact us by email  We will reply you as soon as possible, however response time may be longer than usual.


At this difficult time, the Institute wishes you and your loved ones health and safety.
