This year has seen plenty of growth opportunities for the Club. The team of ExCo members and myself went through periods of high intensity, not only in executing the Club's activities and programmes but also realigning the work, internal processes and exploring new partnerships that would put the Club in a better position to further fully engage the Malay/Muslim community and other communities in Singapore.
We continued 2014 with our key primary themes of Collaboration, Capacity Building and Inclusiveness for all our activities and programmes. As you go through this yearbook, you will find examples of one or more of these three themes and their manifestations in our activities and programmes. Each one of us who were involved in the programmes from ExCo members to sub-committee members were conscious in our effort to ensure that the programmes have one or more of the key primary themes.
I would also like to pay a great tribute to the team of extremely dedicated team mates in the form of my ExCo members. While our number is small, they have made great contributions to the club but most importantly their contributions impacted our members and the community at large especially the Muslim youths in school and the young professionals. Our club and the ExCo are blessed with a dedicated team of sub-committee members who like each one of my team members, selflessly sacrificed their time and brought much value to our programmes. I am humbled and privileged to get to know them and have them as part of my life.
This year is also the last year I am helming this club. I joined the club because of its progressive thoughts, boldness in its execution, diverse in terms of its membership and its ability to impact positively to our Muslim community and beyond. After spending four years as an ExCo member which includes two years as the Club's president, I know all these characteristics are alive and well. In transitioning to a new team, the office bearers have spent a significant amount of time getting the best individuals that we can possibly find in our community to continue carrying forward MClub's Vision and Mission. I hope they will continue to have the support of our members, partners and other Malay/Muslim organisations who have been giving my team and myself great support during my term. I trust the club is in good hands with the next team. I wish them well and may Allah bring them to greater heights and all of us closer to things that are pleasing to HIM.
