This year’s attendance was a record. This showed increasing membership interests in the affairs of the Association, which augers well for the future of the Association.
Previous AGMs have always been held in the office. This year the leap in the show of interest to attend the AGM was so great that the venue for the meeting had to be changed by short notice, and Chin’s Kitchen’s bosses who are our Association’s newest members, agreed to us using their restaurant for the purpose of holding this AGM.
The Committee of Management and all the Honorary Advisors are naturally very pleased to see this surge of interests, and hope that it will continue and even increase.
The usual AGM Dinner was held at the same venue.
