The 10th Annual Sabah Convention (ASC) was held successfully from the 7th to the 9th of June 2013 at Beringgis Resort & Spa. It was an interesting journey for us, from preparations to D-Day, with all sorts of challenges and triumphs ranging from frustrating dealings with the management of the venue, to follow ups with courtesy call appointments, to the clash of the event date with the 13th General Election of Malaysia, and last minute confirmations from Guest of Honors for their willingness to grace our function.
Nevertheless, we as a team broke through all the struggles. We found a better venue with better a price and better services to offer, we successfully made courtesy calls to our respective guest of honors, secured necessary sponsors, arranged the program, and to the best of our ability, we prepared everything that has to be prepared.
Delegates from all over Area Sabah came to witness, participate, debate and speak their voice within the General Assembly to make JCI Sabah a stronger presence within the community. Recognition was given to all Area Sabah Chapter Presidents and National Board who worked hard in 2013 to make JCI in Area Sabah a stronger and more effective organization. Fun training sessions were also held, like the Mudball for water remediation and leadership training by visiting trainer JCI Mem. Kenneth from Manila. After working hard through the days, the nights were spiced with entertainment ranging from dancing, acting and games. JCI Area Sabah unleashed their creative sides and bonded together.
We hope our efforts have given all delegates a thing or two to bring home. In summary, every step we took paid off. Nevertheless, anticipation for the 2014 ASC grows ever stronger. Therefore, feast your eyes on the photos of our achievement.
