Dear Fellow Members,
It is a great honour to be elected as Chairman of the Energy Institute Hong Kong Branch - Session 2020/2021. I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the Immediate Past Chairman Ir KF Yee and past Chairmen for their leadership. My appreciation also extends to all the committee members and YPN members for their dedication and continuous support to the Branch. As Chairman of the coming session, my team and I will try our best to sustain the momentum and continue the success of the Branch.
Due to the pandemic, 2021 will likely be another year of ˇ§new normalˇ¨, where restrictions in face to face meetings and visits would likely be continued for a while. As professional engineers, we would have enough knowledge to overcome these challenges to maintain our quest for professional development in this new normal environment.
In 2021, we would have four main targets. Firstly, as a membership organization, members are our key to our development. We would continue our effort to recruit more individual members and company members, through our membership drive activities. Also, we will continue to bring values to members through providing professional international networks, seminars, training courses and visits in the Greater Bay Area and EIˇ¦s unique worldwide network. To further combat climate change, achieve decarbonization in the region and raise energy engineer profiles, we will continue to collaborate with other professional bodies, government, academia and the public to achieve these goals. Lastly, we have a team of active Young Professional Network (YPN) members in Hong Kong. We will continue to support professional development of our Young Members and Student Ambassadors in energy engineering field.
Looking ahead, we continue to embrace innovation and technology so that Hong Kong can become a greener and cleaner city for us to live in.
If you are not yet a member, I would strongly urge you to get involved. By doing so, you will be better connected and join hands with us to create a positive change on the environment. Should you require further support, please do not hesitate to contact us.
I am looking forward to your active support and participation in the future events.
Ir Chris Chong, FEI
