Annual General Meeting 2008

This annual event took place on 30th June 2008 at the Corinthia San Gorg Hotel.  The Chairman, Mr Carm Cachia, read the Malta Section’s annual report. He said that this year the section managed to achieve a lot of things through extra efforts by the committee. These included:

  • The 2 full day event about e-ID where a number of international speakers presented papers.  The conference was attended by over 180 participants
  • Sponsorship to the University of Malta BScIT (hons) Final Year Exhibition 2008
  • The 4-day Electronic Records Management Programme certification in collaboration with AIIM
  • The 4-day ISEB Software Foundation Testing course
  • Feedback to the Malta Government National ICT Strategy
  • Continued participation of the committee for the Internet Gaming Standards at the Malta Standards Authority
  • Approval of the Malta Institute of Computer Science to conduct the BCS Professional Examination courses
  • Agile SCRUM Development evening event
  • Working with the Government for the adoption of SFIAAGM & IPod Slurp talk

The Chairman then mentioned that the Malta Section’s finances this year have been very healthy due to the surplus of income of the e-ID conference and the courses held.  He encouraged the new committee to continue working harder for further recognition with the Malta Government and also to set up a fund for boosting the BCS image locally.  The current committee will continue to stand and these include:

  • Mr Carm Cachia
  • Ms Elizabeth Olivieri
  • Mr Andrea Stellato
  • Mr David Pace
  • Mr Jan Grech
  • Mr Jonathan Camilleri Bowman

Networking was then carried out over coffee and croissants and followed by an interesting presentation by Mr Brian Azzopardi (GFI) about IPOD Slurping. There was a reasonably good attendance for the talk.
