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.
