Since there was no nomination to stand for Chairperson and Vice-chairperson, members in the AGM passed a proposition that the newly elected Executive Committee would elect among its members a chairperson or an acting chairperson. For details of the proposition please refer to the e-mail that has been sent to members earlier.
Last year, three candidates to run the election for the Executive Committee of 2007-2008 were disqualified. Two members agreed to appeal their cases to AGM for discussion. A resolution was passed in AGM that the decision of the Executive Committee of 2006-2007 to disqualify the two members was ineffective.
I would like to make an announcement of new appointment in JA office. Miss Mak Yin Ting resigned as General Secretary in May and the post has been filled by Miss Au Shuk Ling. Miss Au has much experience working in NGOs and in the media. I believe she is fully competent in her work.
