President’s New Year Message

Dear volunteers,

This year has gone by so quickly, it is hard to belief that we are at the end of 2014 already. It has been another eventful year for our volunteer group. A record number of 72 new trainees joined our training program this year with 11 course leaders supervising.  Afiq from Unit Latihan did a commendable job of arranging for the guest speakers. I am sure many will agree that the most interesting lecture was the talk given by Professor Nordin from UKM on the Golden Age of Melaka. For Focus, we visited Tun Razak Memorial and the underground tin mine at Sungai Lembing, which was very interesting and educational. Similarly, our Japanese and French groups were also active with their Focus activities. And what could have been a more fitting end to the year but with a party at the palace, Halloween themed!

However, our committee saw a few changes this year. Ashok Sheth had to step down from his secretarial position due to work commitments. Our new secretary is Leng Wai Mun, who recently completed his training course at the beginning of 2014. Hayley Holle, who has served 3 years as course leader, also had to step down due to a new job. We thank Ashok and Hayley for their years of service and wish them the best of luck. On the JMM side, the new head of the Corporate Communications Department, which our MV group is under, is Puan Zuriana Zanziba.

I wish to thank all of our committee members for their commitment and contributions, without which we will not be able to function efficiently and effectively (committee members and their positions are listed on our mv blog). Last but not least, a Big Thank You to all of you, our volunteers for your continued monthly support. The feed back from visitors are encouraging. Keep up the good work!

Happy holidays and wishing all a Happy New Year!
