The proposed publication of booklet containing major accomplishments of the EWCA - Sri Lanka Chapter is ongoing.
In the plan for the chapter we had proposed 4 names of Alumni for the 70's Reunion held August 24-27, 2007 and one for the 12th International Conference on Environment and Health in the 21st Century at Peking University held October 26-29, 2007. Unfortunately, no funds were available for participation.
It has been suggested that the EWCA Sri Lanka Chapter would be the Alumni arm with the US-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission as the EWC representative in Sri Lanka, with an alumni desk at the office of the EWC representative in Sri Lanka when the Memorandum of Agreement between EWC Hawaii and US-Sri Lanka Commission is updated.
Coordinated by W.A. Siriwardena, former Chapter VP, EWC alumnus Cindy Yoshiko Shirata (Accounting Professor of the Univ. of Tsukuba, Tokyo) was welcomed by the Chapter. Members of the chapter helped to facilitate her mission of establishing linkages with Science Council of Asia and the scientific establishments in Sri Lanka, and held a meeting a the USSL Fulbright Commission where the alumni office is situated. The Chapter wishes to place on record, Alumni Officer Gordon Ring’s vision, initiatives and actions, which heightened EWC alumni activities in Sri Lanka. During his tenure, Sri Lankan students, social and political leaders and journalists visited the EWC. The Chapter values the many decades of Gordon’s encouragement and promotion of Chapter activities and considers the EWC fortunate to have his services.
