AGM 2022

Dear members, sponsors & partners,

Warmest welcome to our 26th AGM.

I am pleased to report that FSMA has done well in 2021, achieving most of the key trust that was set at the beginning of the term. The 5 key trusts that FSMA set out to achieve at the beginning of our term in 2021 was
1. To kickstart the IBF accreditation for the Pacesetter, AES and MAPS
2. Growing FSMA memberships
3. Increase our digital presence in social media
4. Recognising outstanding agency leaders through our SMA
5. Bringing in curated leaders to share at our SAMC

On our education front, accreditation for Pacesetter, AES and MAPS has started and we will continue to follow through with the process as it has yet to be completed. In 2021, we also have completed more CIAM courses and the highest number of CIAM certifications in a year. Thank you, Education Chair, Ms Queenie and Deputy Education Mr Kurt Ng. I would also like to specially express my gratitude to our moderators. Thank you for coming forward to commit your time and efforts to facilitate the courses brought on by FSMA so selflessly.

FSMA membership has also grown 1.9% over the previous year. This would not have been possible without the hard work of our membership team led by Membership Chairperson, Mr Michael Chen. Thank you!

In our efforts to increase our social media presence, FSMA rolled out a fully revamped website. Our PR & Communication, Mr Royce Goh took on this port and also rolled out FSMA Instagram account. You can continue to find us in our website, Facebook and Instagram. Thank you, Mr Royce Goh for your commitment and contributions.

We had our annual prestigious Singapore Management Awards (SMA) to recognise the award winners of our industry leaders in August 2021. We are proud of their achievements and each and every one of them were recognised in The Straits Times. Our team arranged the delivery of all awards, certificates and congratulatory gift to awardees. It is a stellar testament to your hard work and leadership despite the consistent changes that continued to take place in 2021 due to Covid. Congratulations to all awardees! Thank you, Mr Leslie Ng, our SMA Chairperson and our SMA team for organising this event.

Another one of our key events Singapore Agency Managers Conference was held in October 2021, helmed by our SAMC chairperson, Mr Michael Chen. It was a great learning experience from our distinguished speakers, sharing their best practices in overcoming every situation and challenges into the New Normal. We received much positive feedback. Thank you, Mr Michael Chen and the SAMC team, for making the event a great success!

 

In 2021, FSMA was also given the opportunity to work together to support the STAR team, led by Mr Leong Sow Hoe, in submitting the leaders’ perspectives to 2 of MAS’s consultation papers. We trust that our collective views were able to help the STAR team in their submission and discussion with MAS.

To our Board of Governor, Mr Calvin Lee, Mr Bernard Lim, Dato Daniel Yow, Mr Dennis Tan, and Mr Mark Tang, thank you for being steadfast and relentless in providing your wise counsel and patient advice. Your passion to serve is remarkable and inspiring.

To the Management Committee of 2021/2022, Mr Michael Chen, Ms Queenie Ang, Mr Kurt Ng, Mr Leslie Ng, Mr Hux Lim, Mr Royce Goh, Mr Leonard Chen, Mr Eric Ang, Mr Sean Tan, Mr Desmond Lin, Mr Sakthivel Thevar, and Mr Patrick Koh, first and foremost, thank you for your friendship. On both professional and personal levels, I am grateful for our time together. Most of all, I sincerely appreciate your support and for tirelessly giving your time and resources to serve on this committee, for the benefits of our members.

To support our members and operations better, we have further increased our administration team from 3 staff to 4. I am incredibly appreciative of our full-time staff, Jean, Vicky, Adeline and Yin Ping, for their outstanding administrative support that made this term a great one. Their dedication and commitment to FSMA and its members is an applaudable one.

Finally, it has been an honour and privilege for me to serve as President in FSMA for almost two years. I cannot thank all of you enough for all the support and trust you have given me, and while I might not be able to meet every expectation, I hope I was enough. Thank you for each of your companionship in this journey, and please continue to support our next Management Committee 2022/2023. FSMA is committed to our motto, “To Lead and Serve”. I’ll leave all of you with two quotes. One by Maya Angelou, “When you learn, teach. When you receive, give”. “For in giving, we receive” by The Francis of Assisi. Please take care, stay safe and stay healthy.
