Romesh David was recently appointed to the International Management Council of the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) as an International Vice President (IVP) responsible for South Asia. His appointment was formally announced at the CILT Global Convention in Montreal in May.
The Institute’s Charter and Bye-Laws provide for the nomination and appointment of International Vice-Presidents (IVPs). These appointments carry automatic membership of the International Management Committee and the International Council. The prime purpose of the regional structure is to further establish professional standards and excellence in the region through growth in new branches, membership and education. IVPs will be members of the International Management Committee and also sit on the International Council to represent the wider interests of the Institute, particularly for countries in their allocated region not just where they reside.
CILT currently has eight IVPs with regional and specific responsibilities such as membership and education. Previously past Chairmen Rohaan Abeywickrema, Saliya Senanayake and Prof Amal Kumarage held the IVP positions from Sri Lanka.
Romesh is a Chartered member of CILT and was the Past Chairman of CILT Sri Lanka from 2012 to 2014. During his tenure Sri Lanka became a territory of CILT and WiLAT Sri Lanka forum was formed.
