The third Global Zoom CMA Program was held over 3 weekends in in September 2021. It was an immense success with 84 participants from 25 countries. It commenced at 2pm AEDT and finished at 10pm each day. There were those who tuned in from Canada at Midnight the day before; and from New Zealand who finished after midnight the day following! There were also participants from Europe, Africa, the UAE, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and also Australia.
The presenters were Prof Janek Ratnatunga, Prof Brendan O’Connell and Dr. Chris D’Souza; and the Zoom Host was Dr Chintan Bharwada; ICMA’s COO. Given the incredible logistics involved, it was a team-teaching effort on all the days. From the comments posted in the chat boxes; it was extremely well received.
Special commendation must go to Dr Ana Sopanah who was responsible for a large contingent of participants from Indonesia; and also Mr. Sazzad Hassan, the Regional Director of Bangladesh, Mr. Kapila Dodamgoda, the Regional Director of Sri Lanka and Shakeeb Ahmed of the Regional Director of UAE.
