EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING 03/2015 - WEDNESDAY 23 SEP 2015

The third meeting of the 2015/2016 Executive Committee and the sixth committee meeting for the year 2015, was held on Wednesday, 23 September 2015 from 1100 to 1400 hours at the Meeting Room, Wisma Perwira ATM, Kuala Lumpur. The meeting was chaired by Jen Tan Sri Datuk Amar Mohd Ghazali bin Dato' Mohd Seth, (Bersara), RAFOC President. Present were the Deputy President, Vice President (Navy), Vice President (Air), the Honorary Secretary and five other committee members. Also present were the Committee Member on invitation and a member of the Board of Appeal.

The meeting discussed and passed the minutes of the last committee meeting held on 28 July 2015 and received the reports from the Honorary Secretary on the general administration of RAFOC and, on behalf of the Honorary Treasurer, the financial situation of RAFOC since the last committee meeting. The meeting considered and approved 23 new members for the months of July to September 2015. With the approval of the 23 new members, the total membership as at 23 September 2015 stood at 677 (47 have since left us).

The committee was briefed by the chairmen of the various sub-committees on the activities held under their portfolios since the last committee meeting and discussed on the activities to be held for the remaining months of 2015.

A substantial time was taken by the committee to discuss on current issues facing the country and the relevance of the Armed Forces veterans. The committee decided that a separate session be held for further discussion by the committee before a forum be held for all members and other retired Armed Forces officers.

All in all, it was a good meeting with the committee continuing on being concerned on the various issues facing the Armed Forces veterans and the country. What is more important now is for members of RAFOC, in particular and the retired Armed Forces officers community, in general, to share the concern. Hense, the proposed forum will provide the platform for members of RAFOC and other retired Armed Forces officers to discuss these issues.

Note: Our RAFOC Executive Committee meet once a quarter to discuss and approve related matters in the running of the association. In addition, sub-committees under the responsible committee members meet from time to time to discuss the various activities. Members are kindly invited to assist the Sub-Committees where and when they can.
