ASA held its Annual General Meeting on 17 March 2016

On 17 March 2016, 36 members of our Association gathered at the Fortune Inn restaurant on campus to hold the Annual General Meeting for the year 2016. The meeting was run by the Presidium of the General Assembly, a new body elected in the previous year as required by the Macau government. At the meeting the Executive Committee presented reports of its work during the past year. Among these, noteworthy items were the completion of a report on the academic track system, progress in the government registration of the revised constitution of the Association, and the successful fund-raising from two corporate sponsors. As the 2-year term of the Executive Committee was ending, a new Executive Committee consisting of seven members was elected, namely Wang Jianwei (FSS) as President, Gordon Kerr (FBA) as Vice-President, and Joann Chan (FBA), Chen Guokai (FHS), Chu Caixia (RC), Jiang Chunlian (FED) and Wang Ruibing (ICMS).

Family BBQ on Hac Sa Beach

Members from Toastmasters and the Academic Staff Association and their families had a BBQ at Hac Sac Beach on November 15, 2015 with about 40-50 people. Most of the Toastmasters are local Macau people and this provided an opportunity for staff members to connect with the local community. It provided a wonderful opportunity for families and staff to socialize with each other while enjoying great food.

ASA held its Annual General Meeting on 25 March 2015

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
