Dear SIP Members,

Since my last message on the need to postpone the 49th AGM to the second half of 2020, the Registrar of Societies has advised that with the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act 2020 in place, our AGM must be held by end Sept 2020. SIP Council, therefore, propose to hold our 49th AGM on Thursday 27 Aug 2020 at 8.00pm.

We will conduct the AGM via online Zoom Meeting and would appreciate it if members familiarise themselves with the virtual AGM proceedings as follows:

  • Hon Secretary will send out the Notice of the AGM listing the schedule of the AGM proceedings together with relevant documents to all members on 8 July 2020.
  • Please send in nominations if you wish to propose any nominee for the new SIP Council 2020-2022 by 22 July 2020.
  • We will hold an E-Town Hall meeting on 13 Aug 2020 to go through all the reports and financial statements as well as the nominations received and the guide to Proxy voting.
  • Please note that you will need to submit both Proxy Forms 1 and 2 by 20 Aug 2020. Valid submissions of your Proxy Forms serve as your legal attendance at the virtual AGM and your formal vote for each decision is required.
  • The meeting to conclude the 49th AGM is scheduled for 27 Aug 2020 when the newly elected Council will be announced.

Please refer to the announcement webpage to go through the schedule of AGM proceedings and note the important dates that require your response and do let me or the Hon Secretary know if you need any other details or clarifications./p>
