President’s Message

Mr. Chan Kok Hong

Placeholder text: I am honoured to have been afforded the privilege of serving as the President of ASM for the two-year term of January 2017 to December 2018. As the organization that provides certification to individuals engaged in the science and practice of hydrology, we have an important role to play in laying a course for the future of this discipline. I join a team of enthusiastic and capable individuals on the executive committee of ASM, and we are all eager to enhance the role of ASM in society.

I also come with a sense of excitement for our organization. In order to serve ASM better and move it forward, the executive committee is undertaking an important change and is planning on partnering with a professional management organization. We have spent the better part of last year assessing our current mode of operations, and laying the groundwork for this transition. With approximately 450 members in the organization, this transition will allow us to not only manage our society more efficiently, but will also be instrumental in offering more value to our current members and help in the growth of the organization.
