Thanks to all who turned up for our AGM last Thursday (22 March 2018). While we thank the 2017/18 Exco and Auditors for their contribution to the FWA, we welcome the new 2018/19 Exco and Auditors on board with a continuation of our programme for the year. Please refer to https://www.fwasg.org/AboutUs/Committee.aspx to see our new faces!
As mentioned in an earlier message, there will be a big focus on infrastructure upgrade and internal process improvement this year, to meet the needs of our growing membership base, even as we continue to press forward with the delivery of quality Events, our flagship Mentorship programme, activities in the Social Impact space, engagement with our Male Champions and Female Role Models.
I am also very pleased to announce that we had unanimously passed a change in Constitution to allow Corporate Members a right to vote at future AGMs. This change was proposed to acknowledge the fact that our Corporate membership base has now grown to 20% of our total membership base, and has also been significantly contributing to the FWA in all our activities, most notably with respect to the generous provision of venue, refreshments, speakers and linkages to Male Champions. As such, from next year’s AGM onwards, we can look forward to more active participation by our Corporate Members, and a healthier representation of our membership base.
As always we thank you for your continuous support to the FWA and all that we do as we march on in the #PressforProgress.
With Warmest Regards,
