MAMSA’s 3rd Annual General Meeting
With 2015 coming to an end, MAMSA’s 3rd Annual General Meeting was held on the 26th of September in the Law Building to select the new committee for 2016. The process for the selection of candidates begun well in advance, with the nominations and preliminery interview being held before the general meeting.
We were fortunate to have some members from MASCA and other Malaysian Committees to be present in our election. The selection process took place by vote, where MAMSA members are given pieces of papers and a pen to note their candidate of choice. The paper was then folded to be placed in the box, after which votes are counted to decide on the candidate successful for the post.
Some fantastic speeches were heard on that day. Especially from candidates vying for the president post. In the end, it was Sharon Chen that was elected as President, with Bryan Tan being voted in as the Vice-President. Other posts such as the secretary, treasurer, academic, social, liaison and Melbourne University reps were then selected as the election process went on.
The day ended with a new committee for 2016. The MAMSA legacy goes on.
The Committee for 2016 will be as follows;
President: Sharon Chen
Vice president: Bryan Tan
Secretary: Yi May Cheah
Treasurer: Selena Siow
