Chairman’s Message

It is my great pleasure to serve as the Chairman of the YMC for Session 2022/2023. I wish to first express my sincere gratitude to all Past Chairmen, Committee Members, Co-opted Members, event coordinators and helpers for their dedication and continuous support in laying a solid foundation for the YMC.

My exposure to the Institution began in the YMC where I was impressed by the unity, heartwarming environment and peer learning opportunities. With this great first impression in mind, I hope to build a coherent team and strengthen the collaboration and engagement with our members in this session, under the theme of "One Team, Shared Goals".

The YMC is a unique community that connects young engineers from a range of engineering disciplines and sectors. To leverage our diversity and align our thoughts, we will get more members involved in our planning and decision-making process and work in concert towards addressing matters of concern to young members and our shared goals. To encourage young members’ participation in the YMC and institutional affairs, we will enhance our promotions to members and create more opportunities for young members to serve and learn from exchanging ideas with each other.

The development of young engineers is crucial in sustaining excellence in the engineering profession as a whole. We will continue to enrich the spectrum of our members competency by organising a wide range of continuing professional development activities. We will help young members explore their minds and gain exposures though delegation trips and different events. We will also arrange social and leisure activities for our members to expand their own personal networks and have fun together.

With our experienced members and new blood in the YMC in this session, I am confident that we will bring great insights and continuous improvement to the YMC and better serve our members. May I take this opportunity to appeal for your support and active participation, and to work together to contribute to our engineering society.
