DA LION CITY COMMITTEE NEWS
Here in Singapore, we have some changes to the DALCC Executive Committee. Jeff Watkins, our long-time Counsel, is leaving Singapore for colder climes. We thank Jeff for his dedicated service and wish him and his family well in their new expat adventure. I have appointed Dian Boothe as new Counsel.
Beth Hollohan has resigned her position as Vice Chairperson. Thanks goes out to Beth for juggling a difficult work and travel schedule to contribute mightily to the cause. I have appointed Carmelan Polce as interim Vice Chairperson until we hold an Extraordinary General Meeting to fill the post until next year's AGM.
