Professional Involvement - Membership of Societies


Every national and international Body has its own vision and mission. Being a member of such a body gives one exposure to a wealth of knowledge and expertise in that field. Not only can one share in the knowledge and learning from one another, but also become part of a local or global network of a collegial community of scholars through peer connections.
