On 17th January 2015, we had an Official ARCASIA Handover Ceremony and Office Bearers Meeting in Bangkok, Thailand hosted by the Association of Siamese Architects under Royal Patronage (ASA). We had a very smooth administration transfer, followed by a fruitful meeting and discussions.
I am happy to say that our administration will carry on with the policies and projects initiated under the capable leadership of Immediate Past President Ar. Tan Pei Ing. I also wish to provide you with our goals and objectives, and list the projects we planned to achieve in the two next year.
The Council of the ARCASIA consists of all the Presidents of the National Institutes.

Annual meetings are held in different member institute countries, to deliberate and to give collective directions and representation to matters that affect the architectural profession in the Asian region.
