Club handover

Dear SilverHairsClub members,


We started SHC in 2005. Now 15 years old, we should review succession and handover plans. Change is needed to keep up with time and changing membership interests. It is my aim to be a SHC ordinary member by this year end and for a new person/committee to take over.

SHC operates as a free and easy to join Club with no physical premises. Its rules are no politics, religion, race, sex, direct selling and MLM.

We need a new person to head and lead this Club for another 5 – 10 years. We need someone with wide ranging interests so we can fulfil our Club objective of providing a platform for SilverHairsClub members to meet new and old friends, with like minded interests.

We need more activities and ideas. We need creativity, imagination and dreams. We need to expand our membership.

I am holding a brain storm meeting on how to transit to a new SilverHairsClub and who you see as someone who would lead SilverHairsClub for another 5 to 10 years.

Invitation to participate ONLY if you rsvp ‘handover” before closing date 18 Jul.

Venue: SHC Zoom
Date/time: SUN 19 July 1000am 1.5 hrs.

RSVP “handover” for password.

  1. Our first discussion on the handover process started 19 July 2020. Many members have already contributed ideas on how the handover can be successfully done. We have given ourselves time from now to 15 Sept to identify members who wish to run the SilverHairsClub.

    It is important that members who are interested to run SHC identify themselves and volunteer for this role. The person must clearly be committed to ensure the smooth running of the Club and able to put in time and effort to re-create the new SilverhairsClub.

    The new Normal means that traditional ways of running a social Club must give way to newer ideas, newer members and broader perspectives. We must bear in mind that SHC members have a wide range of interests. And the Club’s objective is to provide a platform for members to meet new and more friends,

    The handover must be completed by end Dec 2020.

  2. Terence, this is how I feel, in acknowledging your presence in SHC – sacrosanct, sentimental and symbolic. All for the same reason : you founded and built up the Club. Similar to that of a “founding father” in other establishments, such as businesses, organisations or even politics, people involved tend to measure the incoming chief against the “remarkable things” accomplished by the founder. It will be tough for the new guy to be in your shoes. However, as with all regimes, there must be a handover. It is but a matter of time, and for SHC, it seems overdue. Let us go easy with whoever is willing and able to let the show go on. The other alternative is to close shop. So fellas…. “Kee Chew” please.


  3. To date, 2 persons have volunteered to take over and run the Club. If any member is interested, plse contact me directly via WhatsApp 9489 4360.

    Take the next 1.5 mths to identify yourself and show fellow members your interest to take this role.

    In addition to volunteering to take this role,. I have set aside this Thur 30 Jul and the last Thur of each month to start a new
    SHC committee.

    Members with strong desire to contribute time and effort to the Club can apply to join this committee. It is important that committee members are prepared to observe the current club rules and it’s objective.

    No observer or advisor members required. Only commited members.

    Committee members should be able to work with one another, have accepted social behaviour., not quarrelsome and tactful.

    Closing date to registe to join this committee is this thur 30 Jul 2020 mid day.
