Malaysia’s MSAE Set to Advance Association Management

The Malaysian Society of Association Executives (MSAE) recently held its first general meeting at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and announced its newly elected President – Datuk Dr. Raj Abdul Karim (President, Malaysian Council for Child Welfare); Secretary – Sunny Chee (General Manager, National Heart Association of Malaysia); Treasurer – James Selva (Secretary, Asian Federation of Advertising Associations) and committee members.

The committee will focus its efforts on an extensive membership drive and in parallel, develop a roadmap for the society that will focus on advancing, promoting and improving education and professional development in association management.

Newly elected MSAE President, Datuk Dr. Raj Abdul Karim, said: “Right now we are all mostly working in our own way, in our own specific fields, but MSAE is the perfect platform to share resources and collaborate with non-governmental organisations and private sector organisations. We have a lot to learn from each other and plenty of room to grow, so I can’t wait to get started.”

MSAE’s next planned member engagement platform, in partnership with Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), will take place at Malaysia Association neXt (MyNext) later this year. The one-day event presents a great opportunity to access cutting-edge insights, exchange ideas, network, express thoughts and debate issues that impact the future growth and sustainability of associations in Malaysia.
