My fellow Rotarians from Rotary Club of Singapore North,
It gives me great pleasure to lead a Rotary Club filled with veterans as the youngest member of the club.
Having joined RCSN in November 2006, it’s been a somewhat rewarding journey so far having enjoyed great fellowships, participating in meaningful local and overseas community service projects alike and getting to know senior Rotarians from various industries and forging an excellent relationship with them in the last 8 years.
The new Rotary year is especially interesting with the first-ever Chinese President from Rotary International and an enthusiastic District Governor in Andre Suharto. Being in Group 8, our club will also benefit from having a very experienced and helpful Assistant Governor, PP Mohan from Rotary Club of Pandan Valley.
Preparation for the role as President of the club started as early as September 2013. Skills and knowledge were imparted and reinforced at the PETS training in KSL in Johor Bahru in March this year. The first task is to organize the event for the installation of the new Board followed by the Club’s most important event of the calendar year – the club’s 32nd anniversary.
It’s also my mission to put Rotary Club of Singapore North back online again after a period of absence.
I am confident with the support of all members from the club, it will be another great year after a successful year under the helm of IPP Kelvin Chan.
Guided by Rotary’s 2014-15 Theme ‘Light Up Rotary’, my Board of Directors and I look forward to serving you in the new rotary year.
