Earlier this week we had our Citizens for Nurin Alert ("CFNA") Committee Meeting. As just like other Committee Meetings, ours had several agendas tabled and deliberated as well.
While I don't plan to disclose the whole minutes of the proceedings to the public at this juncture, I would think furnishing the gist of the meeting would be informative especially to all those who have registered as CFNA friends.
First, the composition of the Committee. After working for slightly more than a month "designationless", the Committee Members have now been given suitably designations each. We now have a Chair, a Deputy Chair, a Secretary, a Treasurer and various exco members. Soon, the Committee would also be expanded to include representatives from the Chinese and Indian communities as well as for the Sabah/Sarawak/Labuan region.
The Committee's full list would be disclosed upon it being finalised by the Committee in their next sitting.
We have also decided to encourage communication from among CFNA members and with the Committee via a forum like network. Due to logistical constraints, the idea to hold a "general meeting" to host all CFNA members has been shelved.
The www.nurinalert.org will be brought to life soon. Its basic contents have been agreed upon and it is now just a matter of time for the "construction" of the website to be completed.
Reviews of the achivements made so far were also made, most of them are already in public knowledge, i.e. the submission of the draft paper on Nurin Alert, the coverage it got from the mass media, including TV, talk sessions etc.
Coming up next will be meetings after meetings with the various parties to push for the adoption of Nurin Alert, including meetings planned with an organisation who has stated its interest to help set up a pilot Nurin Alert Centre. More publicity campaigns are in store as well.
Publicity after publicity, CFNA now has no alternative other than continually working towards the adoption of Nurin Alert mechanism without further ado.
March on Nurin Alert! March On!
