We live in unusual times, I hope you are all keeping safe, staying home and staying healthy.
Firstly, thank you for your responses and support to postpone our society’s AGM, which was meant to be held in March, per ROS and our society rules, due to the evolving situation here in Singapore, we felt it was best not to tempt fate on the last night before additional measures were due to kick in at midnight. So here we are, on a circuit breaker month, feeling grateful we have a strong frontline medical army literally fighting on the frontlines for all Singapore residents - for this, we are all blessed, and a special thanks to all of them who are also IWFS members.
We have decided to proceed with the AGM to be convened on April 28, Tue, 8pm - as we are all still meant to be home, this would be a good time to participate in the AGM via Zoom. Some of the committee members have tested it out and it works well for multiple parties, regardless whether you are an Android, PC or Iphone / ipad user. You don’t even need to download the app, you can simply follow the link. If you are a seasoned user, you will know how to beautify yourselves and change your landscape for the call :) if that’s an incentive to download and try the app - their share price has sky rocketed too btw.
We would like to achieve the quorum necessary to pass the resolutions needed, per agenda below, the main priority being the change in President and the slate of committee members. As you may be aware, I have served 3 years as President, the maximum term allowed, and it is time for someone else to take on these reins.
I appeal to you as members to set this date and time in your diaries and join me, and the committee on the Zoom platform, voice your opinions, suggestions, concerns etc, and participate in the elections!
Please observe the standard etiquette to mute your line unless speaking. Buttons and functions are quite intuitive and easy to use. We will aim to start the AGM at 8pm, so I encourage you to test the system and call in a few minutes before then.
Laurence will be available via email to assist with any technical issues, James, Andrew & Andy are the other experts on the committee.
The link to join in the meeting will be sent to you when finalised.
I look forward to your participation & support for the new committee and President.
Until then, take care & be well.
