We Want Your Memorabilia (2019)

A new history wall will be unveiled after redevelopment,and will feature images, collections and memories of The Club from years past. 

 

If you have any old items relating to The Club - such as old photographers, collectibles (e.g. mugs, photo frames, souvenirs, etc.), uniforms, membership cards, documents, publications, or any other Club memorabilia that you would like to contribute to our history display, please drop them off at the Concierge at your convenience. We want to showcase them!

 

NOTE: Memorabilia will be returned to Members in due time. 

 

Electronic Introduction Cards

As part of our green initiatives, The Club aims to go paperless in due time. Starting January 1, 2019, The Club will no longer be providing printed hard copies of Introduction Cards (Letters of Introduction). Instead, The Club will be sending electronic Letters of Introduction via concierge@amclub.org.sg.

 

We hope this initiative will help us to communicate more effectively while reducing our carbon footprint!

EAGLE Fund

As part of The Club's 70th Birthday, several initiatives have been planned in support of the EAGLE Fund. Learn more about this program below and find out how you can join in our birthday festivities here.

 

What is the EAGLE Fund (Emergency Access Grant for Club Employees)?

The EAGLE Fund (Emergency Access Grant for Club Employees) is a Member-driven initiative established to provide an opportunity to offer support to staff facing unexpected, temporary financial hardship as a result of sudden illness (over and beyond what our Hospitalization and surgical insurance covers), a family crisis, or a natural disaster. The program, administered by The Club's Management and reviewed and approved by the General Committee, is funded through monies raised by Members via direct donations or other fund-raising activities.

 

Definition of an Emergency

An emergency shall be defined as an event which is unforeseen and beyond the employee’s control and has imposed a temporary, sudden, non-recurring economic hardship on the employee. “Temporary” means that the employee was able to manage finances before but is now in significant debt or hardship, and the EAGLE Fund could assist her/him in regaining financial stability. If the employee has long-standing financial problems or an addiction to gambling, she/he would not meet the temporary hardship requirements and would not be eligible. This program is not intended to supplement an employee's salary, but instead to pay for certain specific expenses incurred as a result of the defined emergency.

 

What kinds of situations would be considered temporary hardships?

Examples include but are not limited to the following:

  • - Natural disaster – flood, typhoon
  • - Domestic violence
  • - Death of an immediate family member
  • - Fire
  • - Serious illness/sudden illness – amount exceeding The Club’s group medical insurance coverage and medical care in a government or restructured hospital
  • - Critical injury
