CIPM re-elects Dhammika Fernando as President

CIPM Sri Lanka unanimously re-elected Dhammika Fernando as its President for the Council Year 2019/20 or the second consecutive year.

Fernando is the Secretary of BOI FTZ Manufacturers Association and Executive General Manager, Tropical Findings (Pvt) Ltd., – a BOI company.

“Our goals for the upcoming year would focus on several critical factors aimed at driving growth in revenue streams, which would be given the highest attention, membership development related growth activities, introduction of new product lines, enhancing the acceptance of CIPM qualifications including PQHRM (Professional Qualification in Human Resource Management) in the Public Sector and in the academic sphere worldwide, working closely with likeminded professional bodies, both regionally and internationally, in order to gain recognition and acceptance for our People professionals and to continue with our good work and achievements in policy related areas of governance and transparency, in order to be recognized as an exemplary ethical corporate citizen,” Fernando said.

“In order to rigorously expand our membership, we would be encouraging more young professionals to join CIPM. We would thus radically re-look at the existing By-Laws once more to achieve this objective; we need to create pathways for the aspirants. We also plan to increase the student base at the CIPM Business School which requires the expansion of our study centers to help to reach out to potential students residing in cities and towns in other provinces. We would soon be rebranding our premium qualification to suit our Chartered status,” he added.

“We are already in conversation with some of the places such as Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT), University of Jaffna, Open University of Sri Lanka, Ruhuna University etc. We would make possible for those who come out qualified in people management academically, to become Chartered professionals through exceptions by accrediting that University curriculum.”

As per the new plans for 2019/20 described by Dhammika, the standards of learning facilities at the CIPM Business School too would be raised, while a well laid out framework for the assessment and development of lecturer competencies had been implemented in order to upgrade the Business School to international standards.
