Report of the Annual General Meetings of
Victoria Institution Old Boys’ Association (VIOBA) and
8th June 2014
The meeting started at 10am when the quorum was reached. 40 members attended the meeting, a number that was lower than normal as there was no elections for the committee this year as the term for the committee is now 2 years.
The meeting started with a minute’s silence to commemorate Victorians and members who have passed away since the last AGM, notable members include the late Dato’ Jaffar Indot and also Dr. Laporte Khoo.
Minutes of the previous meeting were read out and followed by the President’s Report on the activities held during the year. Events include the Annual Golf Tournament, Daniel Shield Games, Board of Governors’ Luncheon and the Mokhtar Dahari Challenge. The President also reported on outstanding matters such as the land lease and fund-raising.
The Annual Dinner with the theme to “Honour our Victorian Educators and Scholars” will be held on the 23rd August 2014 at the Royale Chulan Mutiara Damansara. Tables are still available for sale.
The Treasurer reported then on the income and expenses for the year. VIOBA is grateful to Tan Sri Francis Yeah for his continuing support of RM100,000 towards the operation needs of VIOBA. Without this donation, VIOBA will not be able to fund its activities.
Finally in the Open Forum, remarks were made by senior members that it is time to consider a VIOBA name change to be less gender specific. It was noted that it shall be a resolution to be tabled and voted on in the next AGM. The land lease issue was also raised and members asked the committee to resolve it expeditiously with the minimum lease renewal payment.
There being no other matters, the meeting was adjourned at 11.15am.
