Social Gathering of New GC 2019/20 on 23 May 2020

A social gathering of the new General Council 2019/20 was successfully held on 23 May 2020 (Saturday). The event was first kicked off with a lunch gathering at Lingnan Club on 12/F of On Lok Yuen Building in Central. We are honoured to have The Hon Tony TSE Wai-chuen, BBS (Legislative Councillor of Functional Constituency - Architectural, Surveying, Planning and Landscape), Mr SO Yui-chit, Damon (HKICM Honorary Legal Adviser) and Cr Dr NG Yau-yee, Peter (HKICM Honorary President) as our honourable guests. Thereafter the lunch, a photo-taking session for both group and individual photos of the council and co-opted members of the new General Council 2019/20 were held at the HKICM Secretariat Office. Participation in the event was overwhelming with a total of 40 council and co-opted members as well as the Secretariat staff in attendance.

The lunch gathering started with a mask donation ceremony as The Hon Tony TSE Wai-chuen offered to donate 5,000 pieces of face masks to the Institute for the distribution to members in need to fight against the coronavirus. HKICM President Cr Daniel SHUM received the mask on behalf of the Institute and presented a souvenir to express our sincere thanks to The Hon Tony TSE Wai-chuen. Thereafter, a certificate presentation ceremony was also held to present the Certificate of Appointment to our Honorary Legal Adviser, Mr SO Yui-chit, Damon in appreciation of his support and contribution to the development of Institute.

The gathering, which occurred in a happy and friendly atmosphere, has provided an invaluable occasion for old and new council and co-opted members to get acquaintance and know each other as well as to foster closer communication and cooperation in participation of the Council’s events and activities in the coming year.

In order to sustain the General Council’s development, the Institute needs to inject new blood into it on a regular basis. The event provided a platform to promote the Council’s work and hence, encourage more members to contribute their efforts to the General Council.
