On 21 December 2018, APAARI organized its 2nd Executive Committee Meeting (ECM) in 2018, back-to-back with the 15th General Assembly in Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. Attended by APAARI member representatives, the meeting focused on discussing vital issues concerning administrative matters, constitutional amendments and financial/audit reports submitted by the APAARI Secretariat for endorsements. Dr. Ravi Khetarpal presented some concerns and developments on administrative matters, seeking recommendation and opinions from the Executive Committee (EC) members. These provided supportive suggestions to guide the Secretariat in obtaining its legal status in the host country, Thailand, and also appreciated the efforts made in the financial and audit reports that were presented.
The General Assembly focused primarily on the formation of new EC members for Biennium 2019-2020. In addition, extensive discussion centered around the constitutional amendments’ agenda. An updated report regarding APAARI’s key strategies were also highlighted in the meeting.
