AGM 2023

Dear members, sponsors & partners, Warmest welcome to our 27th AGM.

I am pleased to report that FSMA did well in 2022, achieving most of the key trusts set at the beginning of the term. The five key trusts that FSMA set out to accomplish at the beginning of our term in 2022 were:

  1. To kickstart the IBF accreditation for the Pacesetter, AES and MAPS
  2. Growing FSMA memberships
  3. Increase our digital presence on social media
  4. Recognising outstanding agency leaders through our SMA
  5. Bringing in curated leaders to share at our SAMC

On our education front, accreditations for FT2M, Pacesetter, AES and MAPS have started, and we will continue to follow through with the process as its targeting completion in Q2 2023. In 2022, we also completed more CIAM courses and the highest number of CIAM certifications in a year. Thank you, Education Chairperson, Mr Kurt Ng and Deputy Education, Mr Leonard Chen. I would also like to express my gratitude to our moderators especially. 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 over the previous year, which was only possible with the hard work of our membership team led by Membership Chairperson Mr Hux Lim. Thank you!

Our PR & Communications, Mr Sakthivel Thevar, took on this portfolio and rolled out the FSMA Instagram account. You can continue to find us on our website, Facebook and Instagram. Thank you, Mr Sakthivel Thevar, for your commitment and contributions.

We had our annual Singapore Management Awards (SMA) to recognise the award winners of our industry leaders in August 2022. It was our first face-to-face meeting since COVID, and I’m glad everyone enjoyed themselves. We are proud of their achievements, which were recognised in The Straits Times.

Congratulations to all awardees! Thank you, Mr Sean Tan, our SMA Chairperson and our SMA team for organising this event.

Another one of our key events, Singapore Agency Managers Conference: New Generation Leadership, was held in September 2022, helmed by our SAMC Chairperson, Mr Hux Lim. Thank you, Mr Hux Lim and the SAMC team, for making the event a great success! We received much positive feedback. It was a great learning experience from our distinguished speakers sharing their best practices.
