TAPA Asia Pacific Board of Directors
5th Jan 2015
The purpose of this writing is to inform you that revision to TAPA Asia Pacific by-laws had been proposed and to give you some background regarding the proposed changes.
TAPA EMEA and TAPA America had proposed a change in the service term of the Board of Directors (BOD) to 3 years in the recent World Wide Council Face-to-Face meeting in Brussels on the 10-11 Nov 2014. TAPA Asia Pacific, TAPA EMEA, and TAPA America had reached consensus that the revised service term will promote continuity for the better of the association development.
The newly proposed service term will create the opportunity for the BOD to fully immerse in the operations and interact with fellow members at their respective regions, which shall facilitate the collation of feedbacks on the TSR and FSR for the revision of the Standards. The new service term also allows the working committee to fully utilize their experiences and interactions with our fellow members to promote effectiveness and reduce discrepancies.
In order to align with TAPA worldwide, TAPA Asia Pacific will also propose the change of the service term of the Board of Directors, which will be reflected on the by-laws.
The current by-laws of TAPA in Article 4, Section 1: Board of Directors states that:
The amendments reflected on the revised by-laws will be as follow:
- The period of service for any Board member is a term of 2 year. At the end of the term the Board member must stand down, but may stand for re-election to a Board position.
Should there be any strong opposition to the proposed, please do not hesitate to write in stating your reason(s) within 14 days from the sending of this email. Please feel free to contact Adrian.Wong@TAPA-APAC.org or Derick.Ding@TAPA-APAC.org.
- The period of service for any Board member is a term of 3 year. At the end of the term the Board member must stand down, but may stand for re-election to a Board position
We will regard your support to the proposed if we do not hear from your good self before 20 Jan 2015.
Thank you for your attention and support.
