President’s Message

ACESL President

It is my priveledge and honour to be elected as the President for 2019 -2020 session of the Association and I take this opportunity to thank the Council and the Members for availing this opportunity to me to serve the consulting engineering community in Sri Lanka. Together with my colleagues of the Council, we will strive to raise the standards of the Association to serve and uphold the Association’s objectives and contribute to the progress of our Membership and the society at large.

While continuing the current activities initiated by previous Councils we are planning to embark on new projects and activities that will enhance the image of the Association and provide opportunities for all our Members to reap benefits. Some salient features of our plan for the year include the increase of our membership substantially and aim to reach 500 mark by the end of the year, continue the process to establish a permanent office for the Association, conduct training and professional development programmes for the members and the wider consulting community and encourage younger professionals to take to consulting by enhancing membership and activities of the Young Professionals Forum.

We as consulting engineers should get more involved in nation building activities and work with the government in ensuring all development funds are utilized economically and to benefit the country and there should be policies in place to ensure that foreign experts are to be engaged only when there is no local expertise available. In this regard we intend to lobby the government and the industry including funding agencies by highlighting capabilities of our engineers and allied professionals.

I take this opportunity to request the assistance of all members by way of active participation in the activities of the Association, feedback and constructive criticism and their valuable suggestions.

Thank you

Eng. Anura Gamage
