It is my great honour to be elected as the Chairman of Executive Committee for the 2018-2020 tenure. Taking this opportunity, I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all Members of the Council and Executive Committee, especially Dr Bonnie Lam, the preceding chairperson, for the continuous guidance over a substantial period of time in order to achieve a seamless handover.
AIIB was the organization first introduced the Intelligent Building Index (IBI) assessment method in 2000. Moving towards her 20th birthday, AIIB continues to strive for the growth of intelligent building technology; a series of upcoming functions will be organized. This includes two flagship functions, the 2019 International Conference on Intelligent Systems, Structures and Facilities (ISSF2019) and the Project Awards Competition of the Asia Pacific Intelligent Green Building Alliance (APIGBA) where AIIB is one of the Founders.
You are invited to participate in AIIB Annual Dinner, which is a special annual occasion catered for honorable guests, building experts, engineers and industrial practitioners getting together to share any marketing and technical ideas of the IB industrial. I wish you all a great reward, enjoying the speech, dinner and music performance; I eager to meet with you there. Whilst the function has been scheduled for September, I would certainly keep you posted as and when required.
Finally, I would like to express my sincere appreciations to all Members, Council and Executive Committees, partnering organizations, associates and patrons for your valuable support and encouragement, without which AIIB will hardly be more successful.
