Dear Member,

Final Notice for payment of IESL Subscription-2020 & Reminder for ECSL Registration fee - 2020

 This notice is meant for Members those who have not paid IESL annual membership fee-2020 and/or ECSL Registration fee 2020.

According to IESL By-law 37 (pls refer note 1), unless we receive the IESL Membership fee 2020 on or before  November 30, 2020, we will be reluctantly compelled to take your name off from the roll of members with effect from December 01, 2020. However, the Council has extended the deadline until 31st December 2020 for IESL membership subscription 2020, due to the prevailing situation in the country.

Further, according to Engineering Council Sri Lanka (ECSL) Act (pls refer note 2 below), it is a mandatory requirement to register in ECSL if someone is practicing as an engineering practitioner. We therefore inform you to settle the due payments at your earliest by using a convenient payment mode as indicated below.

If you need any clarifications in this regard, please contact Mr. Praneeth Costa via email at praneeth@iesl.lk (with a copy to mgr.fin@iesl.lk).

Whilst thanking you for the support and corporation extended to us all these years, we trust that you will continue to maintain your membership with the Institution by paying the due amount on time.

Thanking You.

Yours faithfully,

The Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka

Eng. Neil Abeysekara

CEO/Executive Secretary
