At our last AGM held on the 29 June 2011, members in attendance, resolved unanimously, that the SAA Constitution be reviewed and appropriately amended, where necessary, to update it to suit the changing needs and demands of national sports associations, in the coming years.
SAA has since February 2011 been granted the status of a Charity, in accordance with the guidelines of the Singapore Sports Council. This important change in our status reinforces the need now to consider appropriate amendments. A task force was accordingly set up to be chaired by our Hon Secretary to embark on this exercise. It is our intention to engage our members and affiliates alike in giving us their feedback on the appropriate amendments they feel should be addressed. You may wish to add your reasons in your response.
Feedback thus gathered will be collated and will form the blue print of the draft amendments. It will thereafter be tabled and deliberated at an appropriate forum – An Extra Ordinary General Meeting of our members. The collective and collaborative effort among members of the athletic fraternity is crucial to ensure a consultative approach is adopted in the process .
It is with this in mind that this email is circulated to members and affiliates. We hope you will set aside some of your precious time to review the current SAA Constitution and submit to us your considered thoughts and views to enable us to initiate the process towards collating and consolidating, before we begin drafting the amendments.
As members of the athletic fraternity it is in our collective interest that we work in the true spirit of sportsmanship through peaceful and friendly dialogue in this exercise. We urge you therefore to come together and collaborate harmoniously towards improving and enhancing athletics in Singapore. We hope the results of the proposed amendments will benefit the present and and future generation of athletes, officials and administrators alike.

Thank you for your time and effort.
