TRIMA 2019 – the Annual Management Convention of Trivandrum Management Association
The Annual Management Convention of Trivandrum Management Association was held on 21st and 22nd February 2019 at Vivanta by Taj, Trivandrum. The theme of the convention was “Building Values for Future”. Values are what we stand for. Our values influence everything we do: our behaviour, where we invest our time and with whom, and how we make decisions. If these values are not unearthed consciously they operate outside of our conscious awareness. Individuals create a society and with a high degree of value create a good society leading to a better world to live
Why values are important - Values like empathy, tolerance make people more responsible citizens, Values are important for making the right decision, Values make people more conscious of their acts. With this ideology in mind, TMA has identified the following as the sub-themes for TRIMA 2019 :
Value based Governance - Legal frame work, Administration, Media
