Highlights from the YMCA Special and Annual General Meetings on 20 May 2014


The YMCA Special and Annual General Meetings were held on Tuesday, 20 May 2014 at YMCA of Singapore.

A SGM was convened this year for the purpose of considering and, if thought fit, passing a resolution to create the position of an additional Vice President with the objective of spreading out the responsibilities of the office bearers. The meeting voted unanimously in favour of the resolution and accepted the proposed amendments to the YMCA Constitution to effect the creation of this new position.

During the AGM, Mr Stephen Loh, President, YMCA of Singapore shared highlights from the various areas of YMCA’s work in serving the community in 2013 (click here to read the full transcript of Mr Loh’s speech).

The Audited Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2013 and the 2013 YMCA Annual Report were also adopted by the members.

Four members were re-elected to serve a new 4-year term on the Board. They are Mr Samuel Chan, Ms Koh Shaw Luan, Mr Tan Eng Beng and Mr Teo Zi-Ming. 

In the first Board meeting for the year 2014/2015 that convened immediately after the AGM, the Board elected the following as Office Bearers for the year 2014/2015:
Mr Stephen Loh Sur Yong (President), Mr Chew Kwee San (Vice President) and Dr Tan Sze Wee (Treasurer).
