Since the PTD Alumni was formed in 1989, our means of communicating with our members had been through letters, faxes, phone calls, meetings (both formal and informal), forums, as well as the many social gatherings we had organised over the years. With the launch of our own website, we now have another means of communication, one that should be more technologically competent and efficient. Our website is still new and simple but it can develop to become a powerful platform for all our members to take advantage of. Towards this end, we need your ideas, comments and suggestions.

We also welcome your input towards planning future programmes and activities for the PTD Alumni. We would like the PTD Alumni to play a more significant role in contributing to the government’s efforts in improving the public service delivery system. Our members collectively have a vast knowledge, invaluable experience, extensive exposure and skills that have been developed and tested over the many years of serving in the public service, many reaching the highest levels in the Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government that they had served. There is much therefore that we can share and contribute.

You will notice that we use mainly English for the contents on our website since it is a common language used in Internet communication. However, we welcome communications to us in Bahasa Malaysia and we look forward to getting your emails.

The 22nd AGM of the PTD Alumni took place on Tuesday, 11th June, 2013 at Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam (KGPA). I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members who attended and at the same time congratulate the new office bearers for 2013/2014.

Tan Sri Dato’ Sri (Dr.) Sallehuddin Mohamed.
