Any Other Business
We are able to hold the AGM virtually under the "Alternative Arrangements Order" (https://www.mha.gov.sg/docs/default-source/default-document-library/faqs-on-holding-of-meetings-for-registered-societies.pdf) which has been extended to end of June 2021.
Usually these notices and minutes are circulated in the newsletter. However the absence of face-to-face activity means that the newsletter has been in abeyance. For one thing, material has been in short supply. For another, we have forgone subscription revenue for a year, so the saving in expenditure is welcome.
Our previous office address provider moved in late 2020. We were therefore obliged to change address for which there was a $40 fee payable to ROS. There will be a saving in annual expenditure as the current provider charges less.
Online play has substituted for much of the face-to-face activity for the time being. SA thanks all those members who have worked to keep everything going.
Many thanks also to those who helped organise Team SG for the virtual 2020 Gladiators WESPA Youth Cup, which was held in early 2021.
