CoE Annual General Meeting 2017 - Students' Election

As communicated to you, the Annual General Meeting (AGM) shall be held on Friday 24th February 2017. At 5.45p.m. The undersigned has received two student nominations in total for election on the executive council. The number of vacancies for student members is that of one and hence an election needs to be held as detailed in the statute of the Chamber of Engineers. At a meeting held on the 24th January 2017, the council agreed to provide student members with the possibility of voting by post.

Short biographies of the nominees can be viewed here. You are kindly invited to vote either by post or during the AGM itself.  A postal voting document is also in the post together with the short bios, election procedures and guidelines,  a voting document specimen, a self  addressed and prepaid envelope and the numbered ballot envelope  with a covering letter.  This is for those who have already paid their 2017 membership fee and any arrears.

Those who have not yet paid their 2017 membership fee or any arrears the bios only are included with the covering letter. Those members who did not yet pay their fee can still attend the AGM and vote, provided they renew their membership at the door.

Voting documents that are submitted by post must reach PO Box 02 Zabbar by latest noon of Tuesday 21st February 2017.   The paid up members who intend to come to the 24th February AGM and wish to vote at the AGM rather then sending the voting document by post,  are reminded to get the voting document and ballot envelope with them on the 24th February. All voting documents will be placed in a sealed box and opened only during the AGM at the counting stage of the election.

Despite of the possibility for students to vote by post, members are still strongly encouraged to participate in the AGM. Much is being discussed and actioned during these crucial times for our profession and your involvement and support is highly appreciated. We cordially remind you of the following AGM agenda:

1.         Reading and approval of minutes

Overview:

This session will be an interactive session on the current state of play of the Maltese pension system.  The presentation will address a number of questions currently being asked  such as: What is the sustainability of the local pension system in the long term?  What is a Pillar II and a Pillar III pension?  Are these pensions voluntary or obligatory and how do they operate in other countries?  Government has recently issued a tax incentive to encourage people to consider a voluntary pension under Pillar III, the session will delve into how such a tax rebate works?  And finally the session will explore the question: What is the right amount of money I should be putting aside to ensure that I can sustain my current standard of living when I decide to retire?

The Chamber feels this activity is relevant to both young and established engineers to plan their financial future in a sustainable manner.

We look forward to your participation at this event.

Chamber of Engineers Annual Conference on Intelligent Buildings

The Chamber of Engineers held its 24th Annual Engineering Conference on 5th May 2016 at the Radisson BLU Golden Sands. The conference entitled “Intelligent Buildings” focused on a variety of aspects related to buildings.

In his opening address Chamber President, Ing. Norman Zammit referred to the introduction of the first personal computers and mobile telephony, highlighting how technology evolved over the last 30 years, making it possible for this technology to be used in buildings to render them intelligent. From basic Building Management systems, to an evolution of integrated systems, where these systems can feature security, access control, CCTV and fire detection.

Ing. Zammit pointed out that health and safety requirements in this sector need to be reviewed to reassess the possible need for certification of these innovative engineering systems.

Hon. Joe Mizzi, Minister for Transport and the Infrastructure, also attending the conference, referred to the introduction of basic building management systems, which eventually gave birth to a new era of intelligent buildings. “The most important contribution of these types of buildings is not just the comfort provided to the users but more importantly the contribution towards the sustainability of our environment. Considering that the principle of sustainability can be applied to a number of buildings in the same area and the other concepts of sustainability are applied, then the result would be a smart city,” he said.
