July/August Edition

Dear AA Members,

Selamat Hari Raya Haji to all our Muslim friends!

In light of the Phase 3 (Heightened Alert), the Multi-Ministry Task Force has announced that Singapore will continue to reopen in a calibrated manner with measures further relaxed with effect from 21 June with more restrictions to be lifted in mid-July. It is vital for everyone to remain vigilant and do our part in helping Singapore mitigate the virus spread. I would like to take this chance to encourage the community to get vaccinated, in view of keeping both yourself and your loved ones safe. However, please rest assure that the Association will continue to operate through both physically and online means, to better provide convenience to our Members and the community.

To elevate our Membership experience amidst the current restrictions, the Association continues to organise a variety of Members-exclusive activities and workshops. Novice athletes may consider signing up for our Yoga Trial, or if you are game enough, you may even register for our 4-session Yoga class. Through these Yoga sessions, we hope our Members can seek inner calmness, and improve your overall health! Besides activities for your physical benefits, we are also hosting an activity for your mental wellness. A complimentary webinar on retirement planning, How To Enhance My Retirement And CPF Life Payout?, aims to guide you on how to plan your retirement pension as well as your overall financial situation, to allow you to keep up your current lifestyle and enjoy your golden years. Do register your interest today, as the slots are based on first-come first-served basis!

Do you have a Young or new driver at Home? Besides leisure activities, the Association’s training arm, AAS Academy also provides a training course for young or new drivers, titled Young or New Driver — Safe Driving Program. This programme is designed to help young or new drivers gain more knowledge and learn about the hazards of driving. Passing this course makes you eligible for discounts when you purchase the AA New Driver Insurance Policy!

As a strong advocate of road safety, the Association is constantly looking at ways to enhance road protection for the motoring community. I would like to use this chance to share that the Association, together with Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (‘FIA’), is running a media campaign on promoting how driving at a low speed can save more lives. Through this campaign, the Association aims to raise awareness to road users that speeding is highly influential to both the risk of a road crash as well as the severity of injuries. Road users are also encouraged to pledge with us to support 30 km/h speed limits worldwide, on streets where people walk, live and play.

Once again, thank you for your support and trust in us during this period. Stay safe, calm and vigilant at all times.

I would like to take this chance to wish everyone a Happy National Day in advance!

Best wishes,
Bernard Tay
President, AA Singapore
