The MVM Newsletter will be back in circulation shortly, as the recently conducted survey on our Yahoo! Group showed it is a important and valued tool of communication.
As you all know the MVM is now in its third year and we have grown to over 100 members! We must become more professional and formalised to enable us to grow as a group. In the very near future a secretriatiat will be set up by Muzium Negara to service the MVM, this will enable us to have professional help with publicity, administration, and a budget to develop different projects. In the future, the MVM training programme will be free. MVM volunteers will be required to wear a uniform (vest and t-shirt) whilst undergoing tours so that they are easily indentified by visitors to the Muzium. New Security ID will be issued to all members. Many other facilities and benefits will be announced in the coming months and we will keep you updated.
There are still vacancies to be filled on the Committee for this year and we need volunteers to help with communications, the blog, PR, weekend and weekday training programmes, school volunteers, and recruitment. Please step up and take the challenge, MVM needs YOU!
I look forward to seeing you all at the Graduation Ceremony for our newest batches on March 27th.
Chrissy Lioe, MVM President
