          5.1  Membership:- Dr Ramesh V M, Individual Member sought to know the number of
             new members enrolled during the tenure of outgoing committee. He pointed out
             the security threat in publishing the full address of the committee members on the
             Chapter’s website and suggested that only the member’s name and their membership
             number would suffice to protect their identity and privacy. The Honorary Secretary
             appreciated the suggestion and agreed to make the required changes in the website.

             addressed the gathering. He remarked that Professional bodies like NSC worked at a

             was achieved with the sincere cooperation of the members.  He had served the NSC

             former Office Bearers, the Government of Kerala and the sponsors for their support to
             complete the Chapter’s own building [STARC].

             with the contract.  The Honorary Secretary appealed to the members that the Forum
             should never forget NSC [KC] as it is a part of NSC [KC].  Dr. Ramesh V M, Convener, HSE
             Forum admitted that it was he who run the training programme for the TCC personnel
             alluded to by the Honorary Secretary as he had no knowledge about the discussion
             by the latter with the TCC who had contacted him much earlier.  He lamented that the
