Re: Comments on the FINACT Constitution

Dear Sanjay,

Thanks  very much for your words of appreciation and your response to the minutes and feedback on draft constitution. Much appreciated.

Yes, I agree with your proposal regarding the Associate membership and is a valid point.  In fact we had lengthy discussions about this at our first Executive Committee meeting. We are aware of this matter.  Yes I totally agree, some organisations may never get incorporated and some may even consider not renewing. That will put FINACT in a stage where it ends up  operating with very few organisations as members. Such a state should never happen. There may be some positives aspects with the Incorporations, but we have to consider things in a broad aspect.  It comes to the principles of Cohesion, Inclusiveness and Collaboration.
