Former Board Chairman M L Birabhongse Kasemsri dies at age 65 (Updated: 26 July 2000)

Former Board Chairman
M L Birabhongse Kasemsri
dies at age 65

The AIT community expresses profound sorrow and regret over the untimely passing away of our former Board Chairman, M L Birabhongse Kasemsri, Principal Private Secretary to His Majesty the King of Thailand, on 25 July 2000.

M L Birabhongse served as Chair of the AIT Board of Trustees from November 1995 to May 2000. His resignation for health reasons was announced at the Executive Committee of the Board meeting on 17 May, in a very moving statement in which he reflected upon his years of tenure at AIT, referring to the period as being both turbulent and challenging.
