The AAS 56th AGM, held on 23 March 2011 at Singapore Manufacturers’ Federation (SMa), Spring Singapore Building, commenced at 7:30pm with a quorum of 38 members. In his President’s Report, Mr Loh Hoon Sun pointed out that the past term was one of the most active and busiest in AAS’ 55 years of history. He attributed the success to the dedication of the hardworking teams of volunteer Management Committee and Working Committee members who, collectively, had successfully organised/co-organised the activities, details of which are on the AAS website.
He next thanked Secretary Ms Tan Boon Soo, Dr Dale Anderson and Mr Seah Kim Swee for their invaluable contributions. Whilst having taken note that these three outgoing members were acknowledged in the President’s Report, Mr Michael Yap said that he would like to put on record the contributions made by them and their voluntary offer to pave the way for self-renewal .
The three new members who were nominated into the Management Committee were returned unopposed. They are Ms Tammie Quai, Ms Kristy Wee and Mr Foo Ser Seen. Ms Tang Shiuh Ying was re-elected Auditor for another term. At the Management Committee meeting that followed immediately after the AGM, Ms Tammie Quai was elected Secretary and Ms Kristy Wee took over as Chairperson of the Membership Committee.

Mr Loh also acknowledged with appreciation the immense contribution of Mr Steven Teo who had provided AAS with secretarial support pro-bono through his company, Veritas Private. Since December 2010, SMa has been the Alumni’s current secretariat.
The AGM ended at 7:45 pm, making it the shortest and most amiable one in the last 5 years. There was time for members to continue their networking and fellowship over the buffet spread.
