He also made a presentation of the work done so far and the significant achievements of the Governing Council during the current year, key amongst which was obtaining of the Charter Status.

“In November 2018, we received the prestigious Charter status. There will be many advantages accruing to our membership consequent to achieving the Charter Status, and the membership should take maximum use of these benefits both in the work place as well as within the people management fraternity,” said CIPM Sri Lanka President Dhammika Fernando.

“Many activities such as the great HR Charity Walk were organised and executed during the current year which gave an opportunity to bring the membership together. Leading CIPM into the digital and green future is the new Learning Management System (LMS) which is being deployed to efficiently manage the academic activities. The LMS will reduce the use of paper and will better facilitate the students in the academic activities,” he added.
