Today 21 July 2006 is one of my happiest days. Today I received a letter from Mr Richard E. Engelhardt of UNESCO-ICCROM Asian Academy for Heritage Management (Ref. 143.8/AA/CA 336.06) informing me about my acceptance as an individual member of the Organisation.
The Asian Academy for Heritage Management is a network of institutions throughout Asia and the Pacific offering professional training in the field of heritage management. The mission of the Asian Academy is to strengthen professional capacity to sustainably manage heritage resources by providing a regional platform for institutional cooperation in training, research, and exchange. Under the guidance of UNESCO and ICCROM, the Asian Academy promotes integrated, holistic and multi-disciplinary management of heritage resources, including both tangible and intangible expressions of culture.
As a member of the Network, I can now benefit from a shared pool of highly qualified resources, participate in seminars, training courses and workshops and take part in the joint research and publication programmes.
With this, I would look forward to a fruitful collaboration with the other Asian Academy members.
