UPDATE:

Board of Computing Professional Draft Bill for review: An Open Day will be held on 13th December (Tuesday) at MOSTI Block C4, Parcel C Putrajaya.

NOTE: This date is supposedly for the organizations that were represented in the committee representing the draft. However, I felt it is for the benefit of all IT professionals to show up and be able to review the bill as we don’t want what happened recently with the Peaceful Assembly Bill.

Time : 9:30am – 5:00pm

UPDATE: The Bill is based on the Registration of Engineers Act 1967 (http://www.bem.org.my/v3/downloads.html)

UPDATE: The format of the review will be: drafts of the bill will be printed on posters, and you can view/read, make comments. Seems like there’s no discussions involved…
