The AGM that was held on the 27th of November was another important milestone for the MCCM and its members. This follows the first successful public event that saw the launching of the Chamber’s Strategy 2021-2023 and the first membership presentation awards.
The AGM was held following an electoral process that saw the first full-term council announced which council follows the founding council that administered our chamber in the particularly challenging early months of its inception.
The achievements of the founding council were clearly evidenced during the same AGM. It is indeed of great satisfaction to note that in less than a year the Chamber was officially registered and launched as a professional body including a number of agreements with various educational institutions (local and foreign) as well as it managed to upscale its efforts towards its strive to establish and acknowledge the profession of the Construction Project Manager, through a professional warrant.
The AGM was attended by Special guests including Hon. Parliament Secretary for Construction Chris Agius, who presented the membership certificates to another block of new members, Ing. Rebecah Cilia that represented the Opposition party and a recorded message was sent, exclusively for the occasion by the ever-supporting Caroline Gumble CEO of the Chartered Institute of Building.
Presentations in the form of a summary of the work done by their respective department were provided by Steve Gambin (Treasurer), Chris Refalo (Secretary) and Clarabel Versace (Education and Development).
Chantal Stagno Navarra read a speech following the chamber’s participation in the National Climate Change Conference earlier in the month, and messages for the occasion by Vice-President Karl Azzopardi and President Jesmond Chetcuti.
During the same meeting, the chamber council for the years 2022-2025 was also announced. The council members are; Jesmond Chetcuti (President) and Karl Azzopardi (Vice-President) confirmed following a confidence vote. Andrei Cachia and Clarabel Versace retained their post from the previous founding council and new members Etienne Pavia, Chantal Stagno Navarra, and Edward Howell.
A big and deserved to thank you goes to founding council members Steve Gambin, Chris Refalo and Nick Vassallo for their invaluable contribution towards the creation and establishing of our chamber. Thanks, Chris, Steve, and Nick.
