Dear AA Members

Here’s wishing everyone a Happy Labour Day!

We had an eventful year in 2023 and we are excited to share the achievements and milestones of our Association for the past year. This year, we will be holding our Annual General Meeting on 29 May 2024, Wednesday at the Fort Canning Lodge (YWCA). I am eager to connect with you in person at this significant event. I extend a warm invitation to all AA Members to join us, as we share the Association’s progress and development. Stay tuned for further details about the AGM, which will be promptly available on our AA website and AA Highway. Members will receive email notification containing essential information about the AGM. Your participation is invaluable as we continue to shape the future of our Association together.

In May, we have a special treat planned for Mother’s Day! From thoughtful gifts like an AA Membership for peace of mind to delightful dining experiences and beautiful flowers, we have curated a selection that ensures there is something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you are looking to pamper your mother with a thoughtful gesture or treat yourself to something special, our Mother’s Day Special offers a diverse range of options to make the occasion memorable. Join us in celebrating the wonderful mothers in our lives and discover the perfect way to express your love and appreciation.

As we are approaching the mid-year, many of you may already be considering plans for the upcoming June holidays, especially if you’re looking forward to spending time with your children. Our Autoventure trips offer fantastic opportunities to create unforgettable memories with your loved ones.

Embark on a 12D11N AA Autoventure to Krabi & Phuket, Thailand, where you can immerse yourselves in the stunning natural beauty, pristine beaches, and vibrant culture of these breathtaking destinations.

You would have read about the recent release of the Annual Road Traffic Situation 2023 by Singapore Police Force that as traffic volumes rose after COVID-19 measures were lifted in 2022, the number of traffic accidents also increased.

Whether you are driving in Singapore or abroad, it is crucial to always exercise patience, graciousness, stay alert, belt up and follow traffic rules during your journey.

Maintaining focus, staying alert and practicing defensive driving behind the wheel are essential practices for safe driving. Never use a mobile phone while driving or any activity that diverts your attention from the task of driving. No matter your destination or plans, prioritise safe driving practices to ensure the safety of your loved ones and other road users.

Lastly, I would like to wish our Muslim friends, Selamat Hari Raya Haji, for their upcoming celebration!

Best wishes
Bernard Tay
President, AA Singapore
