CoE Annual General Meeting 2017 - Students' Election

As communicated to you, the Annual General Meeting (AGM) shall be held on Friday 24th February 2017. At 5.45p.m. The undersigned has received two student nominations in total for election on the executive council. The number of vacancies for student members is that of one and hence an election needs to be held as detailed in the statute of the Chamber of Engineers. At a meeting held on the 24th January 2017, the council agreed to provide student members with the possibility of voting by post.

Short biographies of the nominees can be viewed here. You are kindly invited to vote either by post or during the AGM itself.  A postal voting document is also in the post together with the short bios, election procedures and guidelines,  a voting document specimen, a self  addressed and prepaid envelope and the numbered ballot envelope  with a covering letter.  This is for those who have already paid their 2017 membership fee and any arrears.

Those who have not yet paid their 2017 membership fee or any arrears the bios only are included with the covering letter. Those members who did not yet pay their fee can still attend the AGM and vote, provided they renew their membership at the door.

Voting documents that are submitted by post must reach PO Box 02 Zabbar by latest noon of Tuesday 21st February 2017.   The paid up members who intend to come to the 24th February AGM and wish to vote at the AGM rather then sending the voting document by post,  are reminded to get the voting document and ballot envelope with them on the 24th February. All voting documents will be placed in a sealed box and opened only during the AGM at the counting stage of the election.

4th October 2016


Bank of Valletta and the Chamber of Engineers renew their collaboration

Bank of Valletta renewed its association agreement with the Chamber of Engineers. The collaborative agreement was signed by Mr Kenneth Farrugia, Chief Business Development Officer at Bank of Valletta and Ing. Norman Zammit, President of the Chamber of Engineers. The signature took place during a joint educational clinic about Pensions for the members of the Chamber.

Welcoming the attendees, Mr Farrugia explained, “The Bank’s relationship with the Chamber of Engineers has grown from strength to strength over the years. During this time, both parties have collaborated to introduce financial educational initiatives to assist  members of the Chamber, take informed financial decisions.” Mr Farrugia highlighted the role that education plays on the Bank’s agenda. “In this regard, we are also pleased to announce that as part of this agreement, we shall be introducing the BOV Engineering Student Award, with the aim of encouraging the top engineering students to expose themselves and their projects to international fora, thereby investing in their future.”

Ing. Zammit expressed his satisfaction that the two parties are renewing their collaboration. “In today’s world, engineers are becoming increasingly more involved at managerial levels, not only technical posts, therefore it is even more important that they familiarise themselves with the world of financial markets. In light of this, I believe that the synergy between the Bank and the Chamber will lead to greater professional development of the Chamber’s members, which is recognised as important, even at EU level.”

Victoria Azzopardi from EU and Institutional Affairs at Bank of Valletta kicked off the educational clinic by giving an overview of the benefits offered through the BOV Customised Package available to members of the Chamber of Engineers. She also gave insight on the various consumer finance instruments available, so that members can take informed decisions regarding their finances.

Mario Farrugia, Head Bancassurance at Bank of Valletta followed by  giving an overview of the current situation on pensions in Malta and the importance of a third pillar pension.  “Statistics show that life expectancy is increasing circa eight hours a day “The main aim of this educational clinic,” Mr Farrugia said, “is to raise awareness about the importance of saving for one’s retirement particularly when one considers that life expectancy is increasing on average 8 hours per day. Everyone wants to maintain his/her current lifestyle, however this requires planning beforehand. The private pension schemes offered by Bank of Valletta and MSV Life are intended to help in this regard.

In his concluding remarks, Mark Scicluna Bartoli, Head EU and Institutional Affairs at the Bank thanked the engineers for their active participation, and expressed his satisfaction at the high turnout. He reiterated the Bank’s commitment to continue investing in broadening and facilitating access to financial information to the general public.
