03 Aug 2013 10:09 PM | IESL (Administrator)

On the 2nd of August 2013. at 5:15 PM Sri Lanka time, the IESL's governing body in Colombo, Head Office - "The Council" which meets every month - for the first time in its history, connected all its Provincial Centers (PC) and its overseas Chapter in Sydney, Australia via tele conferencing facilities.

(Go to PC and Chapter pages)

This is the first time in recent decades where all the PCs were participating in this monthly event. Such participation in-person has been very impractical given the distance and time barriers. It was the first time the overseas chapter participated since its inception three years ago. The technology provided by the Sri Lanka Telecom ( only requires a personal computer, webcam, and Internet connectivity. Since PCs and Australian Chapter are widely dispersed entities with varying Internet connectivity quality, it was interesting to see the robustness and the quality of sounds and pictures. This is another major milestone in the digital revolution at IESL to make it a model organization that embraces ICT for better transparency and collaboration among its 13,000 plus membership - growing yearly. IESL plans to make it a monthly practice from now on.
