I also want to thank one of our members, Mr Kannan, who generously provided us the rooftop of his office space (ePagemaker) to hold current and future CTC workshops and presentations. This provides us with a space where we can accommodate up to 200 people to continue our ongoing knowledge sharing and awareness. The same venue was used for our 4th birthday symposium Trek Polamaa II.He was so kind to install blinds to make the venue suitable for LCD presentations.
