" I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the members of the College of Chemical Pathologists of Sri Lanka (CCPSL) for the trust placed in me by appointing me as the President CCPSL for the period 2017 to 2018. I greatly appreciate the contribution of Dr. Saroja Siriwardene, the pioneer Consultant Chemical Pathologist in Sri Lanka for her untiring efforts during the last 30 years in training a group of Chemical Pathologists for the country and broadening the horizons of the field. We fondly call her "the mother of Chemical Pathology in Sri Lanka". Next my special thanks go to our founder President, Consultant Chemical Pathologist late Dr. Meliyanthi Gunatillake for the leadership and contribution given in establishing this organization. The Primary aim of the CCPSL is to direct the practice of Chemical Pathology both in the clinical and technical aspects by giving leadership through dissemination of knowledge to all the layers of clinical chemistry in order to improve patient outcomes.

During my tenure three regional workshops covering the Southern, Northern and Central Provinces will be organized targeting the laboratory staff both in the public and private sector to disseminate knowledge and skills related to current topics of interest. A newsletter will be published very soon giving opportunity to young trainees which will lay the foundation for a Journal in the future. Guidelines, standard operating procedures and position statements relevant to the field of Chemical Pathology will be formulated and approved by the appointed subcommittees will be published on the College website making it accessible to all the others .

The major event of the CCPSL, the Annual Academic Sessions 2018 and lab expo will be held in March with the participation of international speakers in order to provide current global knowledge and technology to Laboratory professionals of Sri Lanka.

In order to spread wings internationally another major international event on "Global Lab Quality Initiative Workshop" will be organized in combination with the Association for Clinical Biochemistry of Sri Lanka (ACBSL) with sponsored speakers from American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC) through the Asia Pacific Federation of Clinical Biochemistry (APFCB) in August 2018.

I hope the academic calendar of the CCPSL for 2017/18 once implemented will greatly contribute to the enhancement of knowledge and skills of the membership and also the other laboratory professionals."
