I thank everyone for their dedication and commitment.

I would like to focus on five areas in my term,

1. Education: AMTC (Agency Management Training Course), Pacesetter, AES, and MAPS are courses leading to the CIAM (Chartered Insurance Agency Manager). IBF (Institute of Banking and Finance Singapore) currently funds these courses.

2. Membership: At the moment, our membership consists of about 1,440 members, making up about 55% of the industry leaders in Singapore. We want to drive this number up. We also have set up our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to enable us to engage with our members.

3. Digital Presence: We aim to increase our presence on social media, namely Facebook, LinkedIn, and our official website.

4. Singapore Management Awards: Based on the latest COVID measures, it would seem that we might be able to hold this award night physically. Our committee will work towards this. Do keep a lookout for the event details. I hope you will continue to participate in this award night to let us appreciate your contribution to the industry!

5. Singapore Agency Managers’ Conference: Our team will continue to invite curated speakers to share their best practices. Please keep a lookout for the event details! I look forward to working together and partnering with you this coming term.

With this, I would like to end off by wishing everyone a great 2022!

Michael Chen
Term 2022-2023
