May/June Edition

Dear AA Members,

Happy Labour Day to you!

Last year, we held our first online Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) in view of the pandemic outbreak. We thank Members for your participation. To safeguard the interests of our Members this year, we will continue to organise an online AGM on 19 May 2021. The Association is proposing amendments to the AA Constitution, including the Bye-Laws of AA. The proposed amendments have taken into consideration to reflect the changing times, in view of providing a more efficient way of communicating with our Members through technological advances. We hope to seek Members’ support on this constitutional review. Members who wish to obtain information on and/or participate in the AGM, may do so via our website. To ensure a smooth registration and verification process to access the online AGM, Members are advised to update your particulars before the registration. Alternatively, Members may also contact us at 6333 8811 or email us at aasmail@aas.com.sg for any particulars’ update.

It is of our Members’ best interest that we continuously furnish you with value-added services, in view of bringing the AA community a more comprehensive Membership package. With this, I’m pleased to share that we have extended your shopping needs at AAShop with online platforms such as Lazada and Shopee. Members can be sure to shop hassle-free at your convenience through these avenues!

Further to our digitalised platforms, the Association is proud to introduce Digital Racing, a simulated auto racing platform, exclusively to our Members, right here at AA Centre! Supported by the Sim Racing Association (Singapore), esport fans can now experience the newest form of competitive motorsport. Whether you are a novice who is trying out an entry level race course, or racing driver at heart who is up for a challenge at the professional level race courses simulation, we have an array of scenarios for you to choose from. For more information on the rates and booking enquiries, do visit our website!

While we are still unable to resume our overseas Autoventure Drives due to the current restrictions, the Association continues to organise a variety of Members-exclusive activities and workshops. Some of the upcoming activities in June include the “Embrace Ageing” workshop for seniors, where we will share about topics on health, technologies, and more; and due to the overwhelming responses of our previous Island Adventure, the Association will be organising a second part of the bicycle trail in Pulau Ubin, where Members can explore the scenic spots and enjoy local seafood!

Further to an array of leisure activities, the Association is also offering online ECO-Driving Workshops through our training arm, AAS Academy. Participants can learn the impacts of speeding, benefits and techniques of ECO-driving, as well as ways to maximize your fuel economy. Learn how to stretch your dollar while saving the environment through our workshop; and you may even receive a complimentary 1-year AA Ordinary Membership, worth $112.35, upon completion of the webinar!

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 encourage our Members to share with us your thoughts on the topic of speeding, through our road safety survey. We hope that with this survey, the Association can gain better insights of the traffic matters in Singapore, in view of providing continuous improvement for the motoring community.

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 opportunity to wish our Muslim Members Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri in advance!

Best wishes,
Bernard Tay
President, AA Singapore
