A new year offers an opportunity to reflect on the past year's accomplishments and to set goals for the months ahead. This, the twentieth year of our Singapore Chapter and we should call it “The Year of Action”. The establishment of our own Singapore Chapter is undoubtedly one of the milestones in our professional history. Let us all put forth extra effort to strengthen our relationship within and without the profession.
It will be my pleasure to communicate with each affiliate country’s association on behalf of our chapter.Each communication will afford an opportunity to develop new friendship, to discuss mutual problems and to work towards a united, active Asia Pacific Security Association.
As the year roll by, many changes have taken place in the security approaches. With the birth of 2019, we will see more changes to come. We, in Singapore should also support the government effort to promote Transformation for a better future in the security industry.
I wish to appreciate the friendship we have built and anticipates with delight the new friendship to be made in months to come. You can expect many new activities in our calendar to cater for our members and supporters. So, I ask you, are you taking advantage of the wealth of professional growth opportunities that membership affords? Whether it's participating in the development of industry standards and guidelines or volunteering at the Chapter level or serving on as a management committee: the opportunities are there. I urge you to come forward and get involved.
It is my honour and joy to wish you and those dear to you many years of health, prosperity and above all, happiness.
