Dear Fellow Professional Foresters and Colleagues, 2017/2018
I take this opportunity to pen a few words with respect to the first issue of Buletin Rimbawan for the Year 2018. I wish to take this opportunity to convey my thanks to fellow IRIM Members for their confidence in electing me once again the President for the 3rd term to lead IRIM for the 2017/2018 session, during its recently concluded 35th Annual General Meeting which was held on the 2nd October, 2017 at the Dewan Damar Minyak, Forestry Department Peninsular Malaysia. My sincere thanks to all those members who have worked diligently to ensure the success of this year’s AGM.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome on board all newly elected IRIM office bearers namely, the Vice Presidents I and II, Hon. Secretary, Hon. Treasurer and the six Council Members. Similarly, I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to the previous IRIM’s office bearers who have sacrifice both their time and efforts in carrying out the IRIM’s activities.
As the newly elected IRIM President, it is my sincerely hope that IRIM will continue to remain relevant in tempo with current digital and e-commerce era. To do this, IRIM members need to inculcate an analytical mind-set, acceptance of multi-dimensional system thinking, embracing technological changes, acceptance of consensus building, and multi-stakeholders participation in efforts to gain traction and establish IRIM’s footprint in the local and international scene. IRIM on its part will continue to provide a platform through dialogue and colloquium to enable its members to share knowledge and be exposed to such approaches in the new era of competitiveness with global standards. It is also timely to pool our efforts temper with our professional resources to achieve what IRIM was set up to do.
Dr. David Chin Tuck Yuan, President
Institut Rimbawan Malaysia (IRIM)
