The seven committee members include Evelyn Cheong, general manager, Malaysia Retailers Association; Lydia Abdul Latif, past committee member, Malaysian Association of Rehabilitation Physicians; Rosman Hamzah, secretary general, Malaysian Gas Association; Zaliha Omar, past president, Malaysian Association of Rehabilitation Physicians; Evelyn Lo, executive director, Malaysian Shopping Malls Association; and Tan Mei Phing, director – business events, Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB).

The committee will focus its efforts on an extensive membership drive and in parallel, develop a roadmap for the society that will focus on advancing, promoting and improving education and professional development in association management.

Newly-elected MSAE president, Raj Abdul Karim, said in a statement: “There is a lot of work to do and I hope that we will be able to come together to develop the capacity of associations and also grow our member numbers so we can better represent and support the association sector.”

MSAE’s next planned member engagement platform, in partnership with MyCEB, will take place at Malaysia Association neXt (MyNext) later this year. The one-day event will be an opportunity to access insights, exchange ideas, network, and debate issues that impact the future growth and sustainability of associations in Malaysia.
