A Proposal of APMAA 2012 Operations

 -Enhancing Visibility and Sustainable Growth- 

After inauguration of the president on January 1, 2010, several initiatives are underway in order to recruit new members to APMAA and to assure its survival.

The initiatives have enabled APMAA to enhance its visibility further not only in Asia Pacific region but also in the rest of the world.

It is the time for APMAA to establish steady governance with a clearly-defined organization structure so that we can sustain the organized growth.

  Thus, this tentative proposal for 2012 APMAA operations expects each of you assume a bigger role. The focal point is an introduction of committees that aim to share APMAA’s diversified functions among us. The committee system enables us to work more smoothly towards hosting annual conferences and challenging new events, new seminars, etc. I hope that all of you will engage in multiple-committee activities.

Let’s work together to transform the above ideas into reality. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
