Message from
President

It has been my privilege to be a member of HKICON since 2010 and I am honoured to be your President for the new session 2021-23.  A lot has happened in the last 10 years or so, such that building conservation has become a significant player in the appreciation and care of Hong Kong’s heritage.  I should like to thank the outgoing President, Angela Ngai, for her excellent leadership and I look forward to building on her work, together with existing and new Council members.  HKICON has established a strong voice in conservation, being the accreditation body for the Architectural Conservation Programme at HKU, convenor of CPD events, and lobby group encouraging the development of policy within government.  It is my aim to continue this work: as you may be aware, HKU is currently planning a new conservation course starting in 2022; and to strengthen links with government, particularly in the area of policy as it affects heritage management and conservation.  Otherwise, it will be very much business as usual.  In that regard, I would encourage all members to take advantage of the CPD programme and to recognise that a well-informed membership will be more effective in preserving and enhancing our built heritage.
