AGM 2008

The 2007/2008 term is about to come to an end to mark the beginning of the 2008/2009 term.

On behalf of the club, I would like to invite all D'Utama Toastmasters Club members to attend our 24th Annual General Meeting which will be held at 8.00 p.m. on Saturday 24th May, 2008 at Armada Hotel, Lorong Utara C, Section 52, 46200 Petaling Jaya.

Attached is the Agenda for the 24th Annual General Meeting and the minutes of the previous Annual General Meeting for your reference.

As I've mentioned during the business session of our previous meeting held on the 3rd April 2008, all members of good standing (ie : paid their dues) are invited as they are eligible to vote and will also be given a complementary buffet dinner at 6.30pm-7.50pm before the AGM. As always, the club fully subsidises the AGM for its members. For members who have not paid their dues, please contact the clubs treasurer, Marcus Loi.

Please confirm your attendance with me as soon as possible by replying to this email as we need to make the necessary arrangements with Armada Hotel based on the number of pax. Note that members who confirms that they will be attending but fail to turn up or should they decide to pull out less than 1 week before AGM, they will have to be penalized RM30 as the club would have confirmed with the hotel and have paid for their attendance.

Please also be reminded that members should update their home address with the clubs VPM, Johnson Yike as we will be sending an official invitation to you by post very soon.
