Some detail reports about the activities of our section (since I wrote my first message here) have been included in our InTeq e-Journal – October issue (available through the link on the left pane). Being the cover note of this webpage, I wish to share a brief on those activities here.
While we retained our old e-Mail a/c exclusively for our Office a new mail a/c was opened exclusively as the common mailbox for the Executive Committee on a permanent basis allowing easy retrieval of mails from the past years. To facilitate a platform which can be used by all regular members of our section for exchange of views, sharing of knowledge, debating on professional issues and other similar purposes, we started a MailGroup (http://ca.groups.yahoo.com/group/ISAmahagroup/). Already this mail group has been made content rich with inputs from various sources. We have also started working on our Website which can SEE now. October issue of our e-Journal InTeq was published in time and already uploaded in this Site (see left pane). January, 2013, issue will appear in time. In September the first issue of ‘Section President’s Newsletter’ (SPN) appeared and the 2nd issue was released in December (see left pane).
We participated in Automation – 2012 Exhibition at Mumbai (7 to 10 Sep) and interacted with many visitors and Exhibitors. In October successfully completed a 2-day in-house Training Program (on ‘Hazardous Area Classification’) with a reputed Engg Company in Mumbai where around 50 Engineers participated.
In September, we had quite a few programs on Student Section. One Institute (PVPIT, Sangli) started a new Student section with initial 42 members and one Institute (GPM, Bandra) re-started their Student Section with 51 members. 2 Institutes celebrated Engineers’ Day and also special event.
We have already taken concrete step for renovating our Vashi Office which is pending for a long time. Afew minor work has already been completed enhancing the facilities inside. A New PC and a New Signboard is being arranged soon.
After taking over charge, the New Executive Committee (EC 13) had their first Meeting (ECM 1) on 12 August. Second meeting (ECM 2) was held on 27 October. ECM 3 is scheduled on 30 December.
