Get Involved with Redevelopment

Want to get involved and influence the direction of The Club? As we accelerate into the execution phase of Redevelopment, you still have opportunities to have your say in what your Club of tomorrow looks like. Join us to look beyond today and into 2020 and further, to imagine, dream, analyze and join in constructive debate:

 

1. Join a Focus Group. Focus Groups are about to launch. From session feedback, we have identified the following Focus Groups: Pool, Youth Zone and Activities, Fine Arts, Library, Business Center, Eagles' Nest and Poolside, Thyme Café, Membership Experience, Gym, Spa, Youth and Aquatics to mention a few.

 

Focus groups are anticipated to meet 3-4 times from end October to early December to ask difficult questions, leverage metrics and data to help prioritize features and services, work with peers, senior staff and consultants. If you would like to participate in a focus group, send us an email indicating your area of interest and contact information at redevelopment@amclub.org.sg, or sign up at the Concierge beginning November.

 

2. Join a Committee. Committees are the place to roll up your sleeves and really get involved. Most meet monthly and work as advisory teams to the General Committee and Senior Management. Moving forward, the Redevelopment will be on the agenda of every (sub) committee. Pivotal in reviewing Member and staff feedback from focus groups, these volunteers will help move The Club into the future. Serving on a committee can also provide the foundational knowledge recommended to serve on the General Committee. The Leadership Development Committee has recently developed the documentation for engaging, preparing and processing Member volunteers. Please click here for more information regarding our committee structure and processes and to access the Committee Interest Form (required of all volunteers who wish to sit on a committee).

 

Currently, the following sub-committee has vacancies: 

Communications Sub-Committee, Re-development: Join the team that is focused on keeping Members, staff and other key stakeholders aware, informed, educated and engaged throughout the Redevelopment project. The Communications Sub-Committee answers directly to the Project Control Group for Redevelopment. This “comms” team is behind the feedback panels in the lobby, the Redevelopment e-newsletter and the team that will brainstorm entertaining ways to acknowledge milestones such as closure of facilities, ground breaking ceremonies, etc. Volunteers are needed to create content for newsletters and magazines, to create and analyze surveys on a monthly basis, conduct interviews, and to develop social media communications. If you’ve an interest in one or all of these areas, please contact sandarac@amclub.org.sg.     

               

3. There are plenty of ways to give us your feedback and ideas. Keep your eyes on the lobby and service counters throughout The Club for manual surveys, a dedicated laptop to give us your feedback throughout the Redevelopment, and interactive stations where brainstorms, constructive comments and concerns are welcome from the entire community. Engage via email: redevelopment@amclub.org.sg.         

 

We look forward to seeing you and hearing from you!

Third Car Registration

Over the years, we have received requests from Members who wish to register more than 2 cars for entry to The Club car park. This is to facilitate convenient access regardless of which car is being used on any particular day. The good news is that the IU system which controls access to The Club car park, now provides the capability for us to offer the option of this added convenience to Members. Please note that even if you opt to have three cars registered with us, in order not to add to the car park usage compaction, only two cars can access the car park at any one time. This option has been available since July 1, 2014. The cost is $750 per year. If you would like to register a 3rd car, please send your membership number and car license number details to concierge@amclub.org.sg or drop by the Concierge Desk to fill up a car registration form.

 

 

Squash Friendly at Penang


 

 

A group of Club Members travelled to Penang last weekend to compete in a Squash Friendly against the Penang Sports Club. Our team put up a good fight, but unfortunately were beaten by a stronger side on the day. Well done to those players who represented us:  Nicolas Ng, Chris Ng, Steve Blencowe, James Ng, Dave Nishball, Tan Eng Sun, Gene Wasosky and Robino Ho.
