The Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Thursday April 28, 2011 at Fife House.
The meeting was well-attended by community members, community partners, volunteers, and board and staff members.
The AGM opened with a choral performance by Singing for Love, a choir for Asian LGBTQ individuals and allies. The Master of Ceremonies for the evening was former board member and volunteer, Jacquiline Uy.
The main proceedings of the meeting began with Jazzmine Manalo, Board Vice-Chair, presenting the Chair’s Address as Andre Goh was out of town. This was followed by a message from the Executive Director, Noulmook Sutdhibhasilp.
