Professor Neelakanthi Ratnatunga - President, The KSMI am greatly privileged to be elected as the 46th president of the Kandy Society of Medicine (KSM) for  the year 2015/16.  I am deeply aware of the responsibility of this post and I pledge to do my best for the progress of the society. What started off as a clinical society in the central hill capital of Sri Lanka, the Kandy Society of Medicine was formally established as a society in 1963 and is today  a very active institution. I take this opportunity to pay tribute to  the past presidents, secretaries and members of the councils for their untiring efforts and leaving a rich legacy for us today.

Compiling the committee was actually easy and a great pleasure because everyone I asked enthusiastically agreed to take up posts and I look forward to an enjoyable and fruitful year.

The past year has been a splendid one with numerous academic and social activities, culminating in a remarkable scientific session, which was greatly appreciated by all. I was struck by the commitment of each and every committee member  who contributed in one or many ways in all the activities last year, and I congratulate Dr. Gamini Edirisinghe the past president and his team for their dedication and hard work. Our programmes for this year will include the continuation of  programmes started by the previous committee such as  the “safe city better life programme” and the new building for the KSM. The latter is a formidable task, but we will keep moving forward. Upgrading and  improving the  Sri Lanka Journal of Medicine (SLJM) which is the official journal of the KSM will be of prime importance. The editors are keen  to making it an online journal.  Maintaining  the SLJM is a difficult task that the committee will have. So I invite all of you to join the editors assistant editors and the editorial committee in this endeavour. Please consider submitting  your articles and research papers to this journal . Publishing a journal in Sri Lanka is a very daunting task. I take this opportunity to thank the  two outgoing editors for keeping afloat the journal and I believe the 2014 issues will be out soon.
