In the last Exco meeting we have outlined many exciting programs that could elevate the roles of BIM in the professional community. BIM must be seen and heard to be effective. In view of that proposition BIM will gear up the effort to promote and collaborate activities with member institutions. The proposed round table ASEAN Professional Dialogue is one of the bold step to promote BIM internationally. The task force has already been set up to plan and execute the proposed dialogue. We would welcome representatives from member institution to join the task force.
The voice of BIM must be heard. One of the subjects that would be of interest to BIM to look at, is the issue of professional services in the public sector. In the past there was no entity that really look at the welfare of professionals in the public sector. We think BIM could play an important role as the voice of professionals and to provide recommendations to government to ensure effective contributions of professionals in the public sector.
