BAMBI News April 2017
Published on: April 11, 2017
In March BAMBI closed the year 2016 with the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and we elected a new Committee to run our activities for the next year. We were happy to see that many of the committee members stayed in their positions for another year, but we also had quite some old-timers finishing their BAMBI adventure.
I would like to thank Megha, Alex and Simmi for all their great work done for BAMBI throughout the years. Megha and Alex stayed with BAMBI more than four years, Megha as Treasurer and Alex as British Club Playgroup Leader and Playgroups Coordinator. And Simmi has been with BAMBI over 10 years (!!!), taking care of our media relations. Their dedication has been admirable and their energy will be missed, but Bangkok is small so I’m sure we’ll still see them around.
For me, this AGM marked also the end of my time as BAMBI Chairwoman. I will not have so much time to dedicate to BAMBI anymore because a new adventure awaits for me soon as a mom of two. A second little princess will join our family in May and I will submerge into the world of endless diaper changes and breastfeeding sessions again 😛 But I’m very happy to have had the chance to be your chairwoman this year. It has been amazing to work together with all the great BAMBI volunteers and to see our BAMBI grow.
With the newly-elected Committee, you will have a chance to “meet” in an upcoming issue of BAMBI News magazine. And in the May issue, you can also read our report of year 2016.
We already saw some changes in the Committee before the AGM. After the Volunteers Info Morning in February, Galina joined us as E-Newsletter Coordinator and Promotional Designer, Anette as Events Assistant and Mari as Treasurer Assistant. Welcome to the BAMBI team to these lovely active ladies! And I would like to say thank you to Fasiha, who took care of our last Yard Sale so well, but unfortunately will not stay with us for the next ones.
I hope you all are managing to find ways to stay cool in these hot months. If you need more ideas then BAMBI Splash Party on 22nd of April is definitely an event not to miss. BAMBI will be waiting for you at the British Club together, with Bangkok Dolphins, for a lot of splash-splash fun 🙂
See you around!
