President's Message

It is with great pleasure I am writing this message as the President of the Hotel Engineers Association. I take this opportunity to thank all members who placed trust and confidence on me to elect as the president for year 2023/24 for ever growing Hotel Engineers Association, though I am a relatively new member. As I know HEA was initiated way back in 2007 with few Colombo City Hotels Engineers. Today we have more than 100 engineers as members.

My broad objective for 2023/24 is to take the HEA to next level by prioritizing training regime to enhance knowledge of hotel engineers and improving skill sets of the technicians. Another important aspect is strengthening our constitution. There is another seed planted in my mind to organize a trade fair related to hotel engineering.

I thank all past presidents and office bearers for bringing HEA to where we are today specially late Mr.Laksiri Gunasinghe and Mr.Nimal Nonis for their valuable contribution. Laksiri was one of the founding members and Nimal took the lead role preparing our constitution. Last but not least we must be thankful for my good friend for many years Mr. Danny Fernando for guiding HEA through their journey. Thank you all and look forward to successful year 2023/24.

‘’Together we are stronger’’
