The proposed amendment to
change the financial year from 30 September to 31 December of each year
was tabled and unanimously accepted by the members. The reasons for the
change was due to cultural and religious festivals like "Cheng Beng"
and "All Souls Day", Good Friday and Easter Holidays which usually
occur in March till April. And this has resulted in members requesting
to change the date of our AGM so that it does not clash with such
festivals. Our Co-operative had submitted the proposed amendment for
registration with the SKM on the 28 March 2012 and received the
approval on the 18 April 2012. All future Annual General Meetings of
the Co-operative will now be held sometime in the month of June every
