2021 Day 174 Task – SEEM Visibility and Networking Committee Meeting

Under The Society of Engineering Educators Malaysia (SEEM), I am the head of the Visibility and Networking Committee. We have not had a meeting yet and I just realized this morning that we need to present activities for our committee. Immediately I created a new Whatsapp group to gather all 4 committee members, which are me, Dr. Salah from UPM, Dr. Nazatul from UM and Dr. Azlina from UiTM. We managed to had a 1 hour meeting that started at 2.30pm and came out with quite a number of detailed plan activities.

I am happy working with the new team which is from 4 different universities. It is like breathing fresh air. Getting new ideas, new dimension and new perspective.

Oh by the way, I submitted the correction for BCREC journal proof that Nazlina has completed and Alhamdulillah, the manuscript has now been published online. Feel free to download the paper here.

2021 Day 105 Tasks – SEEM Meeting on My Weekend

So far the trend is SEEM meeting every Friday, which is our off day (as we work in Johor). But that’s fine as I occasionally do some official tasks throughout the weekends.

Mesyuarat Jawatankuasa SEEM Bil 2 2020/2021 was held from 3pm to 5pm and it include the new recruited committees as well. I participated in the meeting using my mobile phone as I was with my family purchasing books from my daughter who will sit for her SPM at the end of the year. It seems like now the world has really become so strongly connected. Even though we are not physically face to face at the meeting, even though we travel here and there, yet still the online meeting can be successfully executed even when I am in Plaza Angsana. I have several parts to present myself and that did not affected me from reporting my tasks/parts.

Most important decision from the meeting were made (that involved me) and I am glad that the meeting was held.
