Dear Member-institutions (MI) and the individual members of the MI of Balai Ikthisas Malaysia (BIM).
Forty years ago in 1973 BIM was formed as an umbrella body consisting of eleven founder member-institutions to represent the professionals of the nation. Now the number of member-institutions has double to twenty two. The founding fathers guided by their wisdom, were motivated to establish BIM to ensure the enhancement of professionalism, good representation to the government and engagement with the public. The stewardship of BIM and leadership styles change from time to time, the goal, however, remains, to be relayed to the succeeding leadership. This is our promise to BIM member-institutions, to continue to achieve the goals, as we come on board as the new Executive Committee.
