- We would like to also request to all members, that if you are feeling unwell, to please refrain from attending the meeting in-person. Refreshments will not be served at the AGM.

It is intended to make significant changes to the Constitution and a Membership Consultation meeting was held recently to discuss the changes and receive feedback. As such, all those attending the AGM are expected to have read the proposed new Constitution beforehand, and time will not be spent going through the details again. There will be an opportunity for questions.
Here are the main changes since the version sent prior to the Membership Consultation meeting:
- Article 1. Name and Registration - we added that SAS is “registered with the Registrar of Societies of Singapore”
- Article 5.3. Members Obligations - includes must and may
- Article 5.4. Good Standing - has “Not knowingly involved (other than as a victim) in any other matter which might bring the Society into disrepute” added so that we can get rid of “necessarily but not sufficiently”
- Article 6. General Meetings Proceedings at meetings - Votes are defined as excluding abstentions and invalid votes
- Article 7. Council - has a new clause: “The number of Co-Opted Members shall not exceed the number of Elected Members”
- Article 8. Audit - has now External Auditor appointed at AGM by vote
- Article 10. Prohibitions - has NMP authorized under Political Activities
In-person attendees – live voting (register below)
Virtual attendees – registration & submission of eproxy form (Virtual attendees will not be allowed to vote at the AGM and must ensure their proxies have registered to attend in person)
