Kong Xi Fa Cai to all!
Things have slowed down due to the festive season. May the year of the Rabbit bring to
all good luck, good health and prosperity.
The 24th Annual General Meeting has been fixed for Saturday, 19th March. Please put
this in your diary! As Haslinah Yacob has put in her resignation, we will be electing a
new president and another exco member to replace Rabiah Omar who has moved to
Johore. We take this opportunity to thank both Haslinah and Rabiah for their valuable
contributions to AWAM and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
Your AWAM e-link team!
