    This year 2069 (2012-13) has been the year that has marked as 50 years of NEA\'s relentless journey towards prosperous Nepal. All engineers contributed to celebrate golden jubilee of NEA that was successfully organized with grandeur on Shravan 3, 2069 BS. And, now, with the pulsating rhythms of all Nepali engineers, NEA is poised to organize its yet another gala event, the 13th -National Convention on Baishakh 15 - 17, 2070 (April 28 - 30,2013) in Kathmandu. All engineers are requested to book the dates exclusively for the event. Nepal has witnessed a long transition after the successful peoples\' movement of 2062/ 63 (2005/ 06). Lately, political parties have been found making efforts to find some common points to forge consensus. However, the impact of the transition is sure to last much longer in terms of prosperity of the nation. Simply put, the nation has lost valuable period of years, almost a decade. But engineers, the architects of the foundation of the prosperity, have to find some ways to break the barriers and connect the present transition to the future that must be safer, progressive and prosperous. Engineers must maximize their efforts in utilizing their wisdom and vision. Hence, considering all the suggestions, numerous options that were received and followed by series of discussions, NEA has decided to float the following theme for the upcoming 13th National Convention of Engineers.
