Discussion Forum: From CME to CPD
may be aware from the news and publications of the Academy that the
Education Committee has been considering the move to CPD for quite a long
time. After years of
discussion, the Academy Council has agreed in principle to move forward to
CPD in stages. Before
proceeding further, we would like to organise another forum (the first forum was held on 30 September 2006) to explain to you about the rationale and the details of the change and listen more views on the proposed move in order that we can make a programme that can fulfill our goal as well as your needs. Fellows who were unable to attend the last forum please try to attend this time.
The forum will
be held at 18:00
pm on 12
at Pao Yue Kong Auditorium of the HKAM
The Academy hopes Fellows
can spend some
time to attend so that the Academy can hear from as many of Fellows as
possible in order that the Academy can make a programme that can fulfill
its goal as well as Fellows’ needs.
Election of Officers
The Election of Officers was conducted earlier. The Academy received one nomination for each of the 6 posts. The candidates are therefore elected ipso facto.
The term of office of these 6 Officers will end at the conclusion of the AGM in 2008.
