I am a firm believer in the well known saying of Mother Theresa that,
Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love

So, I promise to, if elected do my small part in ensuring the well being of members of this premier bar.

  2. I covenant to liaise effectively with branch committee members in achieving a great social networking among members of the branch regardless of gender or call age.
  3. I covenant to, in conjunction with the Executive Committee of the branch organise a world class standard Retreat for members of the branch.

  8. I covenant, in addition to the Retreat mentioned above to establish a platform for all members, particularly our senior colleagues to be more involved in the social activities of the branch to ease the stress associated with the hustle and bustle of the city.
  9. I covenant to act in accordance with the constitutional duties of the office as contained in Section 7 (7) a-c of the Uniform Bye Law 2015.
