The Engineer's Chamber's Annual General Meeting, which was held virtually on 26th February, witnessed the departure of Daniel Micallef following a two-year tenure as President and welcomed the entrance of new engineers bringing a spectrum of youth, energy, experience and fresh ideas.
Following the first Executive Council Meeting of the term, Inġ Zammit was unanimously endorsed as President. He acceded to this new role following his appointment as Secretary-General in 2019.
Celebrating the appointment on social media, he said he was “truly humbled to be entrusted with the role of President”, and that he salutes his predecessor “Inġ Micallef and past colleagues for the years of service [they] invested in the profession”.
In his first address to the newly appointed Executive Council, Inġ Zammit stated that this new Council hones the necessary talent and energy to deliver a new chapter for the representation of engineers, by consolidating the organisation’s links with members, improving the Chamber’s sustainability and promoting the attractiveness and recognition of the profession.
Also at the meeting, Robert Busuttil was elected Vice-President and Bonnie Attard was elected Secretary General.
Long-serving member Johan Psaila was entrusted with the role of Treasurer whilst the newly onboarded Denise Baldacchino was given the Public Relations Officer role.
