HKIA is being invited by Hong Kong Housing Society to nominate a representative to serve on the Advisory Group on Specifications for External Wall Paint System for Integrated Building Maintenance Assistance Scheme.
The Integrated Building Maintenance Assistance Scheme is jointly run by the Hong Kong Housing Society and Urban Renewal Authority to provide financial assistance and technical support to property owners with service optimization and relaxation of eligibility criteria. Please refer to the website http://www.hkhs.com or http://www.ura.org.hk for more details on IBMAS. The IBMAS Co-ordination Committee has decided to invite participation of professional institutions in joining the advisory group to advise on the technical guidelines for use by applicants, whether as mandatory scheme requirement or advisory tool. The initial idea is to identify a set of moderate, generic standards for "affordable quality" in external wall paints suitable for old buildings.
The above nomination is open to all members for registering interests for being nominated for the above advisory group. You are advised to read the enclosed guidelines on “Nominating Members to External Government / Advisory and Statutory Bodies”. Appointed members shall provide written reports and simple summary statements to the Institute after each meeting and/ or from time to time for Board’s information and distribution to general members where appropriate.
Should you be interested in being nominated, please register your interest by completing the following reply form with your brief CV and return it to HKIA Secretariat by fax no. at 2519 6011 not later than 5:30pm of 13 December 2011 (Tue).
