THE Malaysian Institute of Management (MIM) will hold its 40th Anniversary Royal Gala Dinner on May 24 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Kuala Lumpur to celebrate 40 years of delivering management excellence.
The dinner will be graced by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Ibni Al-Marhum Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalullail and the Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Fauziah binti Al-Marhum Tengku Abdul Rashid.
Inaugurated in 1966 on the inspiration of the late Bank Negara governor Tun Ismail Mohd Ali as the national, independent, non-political and non-profit management organisation, MIM has established itself as the authoritative voice of management in Malaysia.
According to former CEO Dr Tarcisius Chin, who is now a member of its Court of Fellows, MIM was established to meet national management needs.
“It is therefore perceived as a national institution and there is enormous goodwill for its continuing existence.
“As a national institution, the institute has been true to its mission of enhancing and maintaining high management standards through its management development programmes and as a voice and conscience of management,” he said.
Current CEO Dr Wilson Tay said the anniversary marks another milestone for MIM as it continues to develop and train better and more managers.
During the dinner, founding members and members who have been supporting MIM for 30 years or more will be awarded the title Confrère d’honneur.
Group members of the Institute will be awarded the title Partenaire de valeur.
MIM has over the past 40 years trained more than 340,000 managers and employees in management, management education and other related workplace functional skills and knowledge.
Its challenge now is to re-position and re-invent itself to support the existing management community and emerging new managers to tackle today’s and tomorrow’s new management demands and challenges.
