Reasons for the amendments:

  1. New IMM logo – the word “Institute of Materials Malaysia” inscribed below “IMM” is difficult to be read when the size of the logo is small and the word of IMM is preferred to be flat instead of slanting upward to right.
  2. IMM Constitution – At present, IMM Constitution is more commonly (as well as preferred) in used as compared to IMM Rules.
  3. New IMM Secretariat Address – Relocation of IMM Secretariat Office from No. 10-1, Jalan Bandar 3, Pusat Bandar Puchong, 47160 Puchong, Selangor, Malaysia to Suite 515, Level 5, Block A, Kelana Center Point (Lobby B), No.3, Jalan SS 7/19, Kelana Jaya, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia on 1st May 2018.
  4. Setting up of own IMM secretariat – IMM set up its own IMM secretariat office since 1st July 2017 instead of nominating a Contractor to operate the Secretariat and run all activities on behalf of the IMM.
  5. Quorum of the annual general meeting or extraordinary general meeting & council meeting is reduced – roughly 50% of IMM members are not located in Klang Valley, where annual general meeting or extraordinary general meeting is held in Kuala Lumpur. A lot of Council Members are not based in Klang Valley and they are actively running IMM activities in regional chapters (e.g. East Coast, Southern, Northern, Bintulu, Miri, Sabah etc).
  6. In accordance to the requirement of Registrar of Societies’ Registry of Societies Electronic System (eROSES), IMM has to rearrange the content of the constitution into 18 clauses in order to fit the format of eROSES.
