On 25 March 2015, 43 members of our Association gathered at the Fortune Inn Restaurant on campus to hold this year’s Annual General Meeting. Besides various reports of our activities and achievements during the past year, the main three agenda items were:
- Approval of the proposed new constitution. We have been in the process of registering our revised constitution, as well as our new English and Chinese names, with the relevant Macau government departments for the past year. Finally we were told to adopt a simpler constitution in a standard format. To comply with the government’s requirement, our legal adviser drafted up a constitution in the required format, which was presented to our members. The new constitution was unanimously approved.
- Election of the Presidium of the General Assembly. This is a new body required by the Macau government as well as under the rules of our new constitution, and is tasked mainly with organising and running the annual general meeting. The elected members are: Xu Daming (FAH) as President, Li Ying (FSS) as Vice-President, and Joshua Lee (ELC) as Secretary.
- Election of the new Supervisory Committee. The 2-year term of our outgoing Supervisory Committee that had been serving since 2013 has ended, and a new Supervisory Committee was elected. The new members are: Chen Yang (FST) as President, Kim Hughes Wilhelm (FAH) as Vice-President, and Christopher Kelen (FAH) as Secretary.
