At the TCS Inaugural General and Committee Meetings held in November 2011, Tan Sri Dr. Salleh b. Mohd. Nor, our President, threw us a challenge. That is, to recruit our first 100 members before the next Committee Meeting.
It seemed like an easy job because at that time, we already had more than 30 paid-up members. And since we had just elected our new Committee that consisted of nine people, we thought it wouldn’t be too difficult to recruit another 70 new members. Turns out, most of us were busy with our own work and commitment that we did not have time to recruit new members!
After Chinese New Year, Prof. Chan Eng Heng, our Vice President, started emailing her friends and contacts, and our membership started increasing. That prompted a few others to actively promote TCS to our families, friends and colleagues and in a month, we have achieved the President’s Challenge of recruiting 100 members!
We would like to thank all our members for believing in us and for supporting turtle conservation in Malaysia!
