President’s Welcome & Message from LOC Chairman
It is with much pleasure that I, as President of IMESA, welcome you to the 2013 IMESA Conference. Given the multitude of challenges faced by municipal engineers as part of their daily tasks, I’m sure that delegates will agree that the choice of the conference theme ‘Municipal Engineering: Meeting People’s Needs’ is indeed appropriate.
