Dear Members,

69th Annual General Meeting

Please find enclosed the proxy form and the self-addressed pre-stamped envelope for you to submit your votes for the 69th Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 27 August 2022. Please be reminded that your proxy form must reach Trusted Services, our authorized third-party vendor for vote-counting, by noon on Friday, 26 August 2022. Hence, please post your proxy form early.

In addition, to update the information regarding AGM, we have set up an AGM micro site for members to access all information relating to the 69th AGM. The website is here.

In an effort to make the proxy form more accessible to our visually impaired members, we have provided tactile boxes to guide visually impaired members to mark their choices on the proxy forms. For Sighted members please kindly just read for information only. The proxy form will consist of 3 pages. Only page 3 contains items which require members to mark their choices. There will also be tactile to indicate the place for members to date and to sign. As a suggestion, they may wish to further use a ruler or other item to block out the other boxes to further ensure that they are marking the correct box.

For visually impaired members who have requested for AGM materials in Braille format, the choices will also be shown in Braille with the tactile boxes, so they can read the Braille and mark their choices within the tactile boxes accordingly.

Visually impaired members who have not requested for Braille material and are not able to read the print of the proxy forms and are not able to get sighted assistance can still try to mark the boxes by themselves. A soft copy or audio CD version of the proxy form would have been provided to members depending on which format they requested. Visually impaired members can refer to the soft copy or audio copy (as applicable) of the proxy form and compare the choices available with the number of tactile boxes.

After marking their choices, dating and signing as applicable, members must place page 3 of the proxy form in the self-addressed envelopes for mailing to Trusted Services, the authorized vendor for vote-counting for the AGM. Members who need further assistance can contact Desmond Soh at desmond.soh@savh.org.sg to arrange a time to advise over the phone, or call directly at 62514331 extension 701.
