The 9th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Nalanda Buddhist Society Malaysia was held on 11 March, at the Srivijaya Hall, Nalanda Centre. The highlight of the AGM was the passing of two important resolutions – to allow the setting up of branches, and the acquisition of potential properties for future expansion.
Nalandians also voted in a new Management Committee for 2012-2013, but retained the key offices of President, Vice President and Honorary Secretary. As such, the members have voted for continuity, and by extension, endorsed the Transformation Programme currently being implemented.
President Lee Kong Foo expressed Nalanda’s appreciation and gratitude to the outgoing Management Committee (2011-2012) for their support and contributions to the Society. He also congratulated and welcomed the newly elected officers for the 2012-2013 term.
In reminding Nalandians, Bro Lee said, “…the Society has embarked on a 20-month Transformation Programme since 1 May 2011, and I believe we would be able to continue and execute the programme effectively until December 2012. We should stay focused on our mission and realign our priorities in enhancing the five focal areas, namely – Structure, People, Resources, Systems and Facilities. We sincerely hope that you will continue to extend your support to the Society so that further growth and progress can be achieved for the benefit of the entire Buddhist community.”
