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.
