Notice of TARCASA EGM, again

Dear TARCASA Members,
Hi! We’re sorry to inform you all that our EGM was not successfully held last Fri. due to a lack of quorum 😦 Many of us were disappointed that there were not enough members present for us to carry out discussions based on items listed out in the agenda.On the other hand, we’re appreciative of the TARCASA members who were present last Fri. It’s your support who steers us to greater heights of service for TARCASA 🙂

Some absent members have informed us that they were unable to attend becoz. they had urgent matters to attend to and to go back to their hometowns to celebrate Mother’s Day. Therefore, we’re calling for another EGM, again this week. The details are:
Date: 17 May 2013
Day: Friday
Time: 5.30 pm
Venue: DK 1

Pls be there. We’ll still be conducting the meeting even if there’s a lack of quorum and will make important decisions based on the responses and feedback from members who will be present on that day.

Thank you
