Notice is hereby given that an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of the Malaysian Association for the Study of Obesity (MASO) will be held (virtually) and the details are as follows:

Date : 12th August 2021 (Thursday)
Time : 5.30 – 6.30 p.m. (Registration starts at 5.00 pm)
Venue : Online ZOOM Meeting

Agenda :

i) Welcome address by President
ii) Amendments in MASO Rules and Bye-Laws from the previous 26th Annual General Meeting (AGM)
iii) ROS criteria for amendments’ approval
iii) Other matters
iv) Adjournment

Registration: (Please register by 10th August 2021)

The MASO Council in accordance with MASO’s Rules (Article VI), shall convene an EGM whenever the council deems it desirable. This is following a rejection to the amendments of MASO’s constitution (rules and bye-laws) that has been approved in the last 26th AGM, by the Registrar of Societies (ROS), Malaysia. The main reason for this rejection was merely due to a technical glitch in the ROS website and that the amendments were not submitted on time. In this proposed EGM, the approved amendments (Appendix 1) will be tabled once again for members’ approval before being sent to the ROS for their consideration and further approval.

We hope to see you virtually at the EGM on 12th August 2021! Members who have registered (registration at will be provided with details on how to join the meeting in a due course.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Geeta Appannah
Hon. Secretary, MASO (2019-2021)
