Dear HKIEIA Members,
It is a pleasure to welcome you to this edition of the Newsletter. It has always been an objective of the institute to enrich our members with events in the form of events, seminars, site visits, conferences, etc. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 and social distancing to keep ourselves safe and healthy the same ways of nurturing our members are no longer possible. Still as you may have observed, the institute has been trying our very best in passing on the knowledge to our members by other means……..virtual meetings.
As already mentioned in my Chairman’s message in July 2020, we will continue to inspire the environmental professionals and nurture young members for professional development in enhancing members’ knowledge and future careers.
With the recent graduate subsidy programme announced by the Government, the Institute has joined hands with HKIQEP and the IPs to participate in the “Graduate Environmental Mentoring Scheme” to nurture young environmental graduates.
We, HKIEIA, have moved to virtual meetings and events including capacity building seminars, etc. and continued with cooperation with different professional institutions such as the CIWEM HK, EMAHK, HKIOA, HKIQEP, HKIEPO, HKIE etc., to create more learning opportunities.
