李健荣会长    献词

本会第卅届理事会届满,依章程所限会长,秘书长及财政不能连任超过两届,因此已连任两届的会长刘俊光及秘书长刘振川两职需依章程换人代之,不巧本人蒙理事们错爱接棒会长职,听卸任会长于主持当届最后一次会议时讲话说他当年就任时是怀着战战兢兢的心情上任的,听之余自知领军不易,庆幸的是在他任期的四年里做了大量的工作,把本会办得更有“商会”的味道,也巩固了财务狀況,治理会务理念方面更加强了团队的精神,让后面接任者容易许多,因此本人要对他这些年来的努力不懈地为本会做出的贡献表示深深的感激。

 

在策划60周年纪念特刊工作时翻查档案中了解到咱同业先贤在1956年创立本会时的奉献精神,以当时社会经济条件(我国独立前)即有60名同业加入为会员,让我感受到真正所谓群策群力的力量,今天国家社会经历了非常大的变化,然而本会会员人数乃未及过百,而当年加入的会员至今仍在经营直到现在的更是凤毛麟角。今時在此行业中做大做专的更不多见,是否这个行业长期处于涛涛红海中被迫出局,或是此行业无法吸引創業者的下一代来接手等等……被淘汰者众,行业新秀亦不少,然而成为我会会员者不多,是我会宣传不足或是本会魅力不够……是时候探讨广招会员以壮大本会的力量。

 

今年适逢本会迎接60周年的到来,本会正籌劃订制纪念茶饼(普洱生茶)及编印特刊藉以紀念,届时尚希大家以爱会的精神大力支持以示同沾共喜。最后祈愿本行业能蓬勃发展,茶香飘万家,同业生意发达!

 

Chairman's Message

The term of 30th committee has ended. As the Associations' Rules & Regulations stated, the tenure for Chairman, Secretary-General and Treasurer is limited by two terms. Hence Chairman, Liew Choon Kong and Secretary-General, Lau Chin Chuan, who have served two terms are to step down and be replaced by others. I have taken over the baton as the Chairman due to supports extended by committee members. After listening to the speech by outgoing president in the last committee meeting, it has not been an easy task leading the association. Fortunately, he has laid a lot of ground work in four years as the Chairman, turning the association to be more “business touch”. He has also enhanced the team spirit in managing the administrative affairs of the association and consolidated the financial status of the association. It turned out to be a smooth transition for the successor to take over. I wish to express my gratitude to him for his relentless efforts and contribution serving the association.

 

While planning for the special issue publication to commemorate 60th anniversary of the association, through reading from the archived documents, I could relate to the contribution of our forefathers in the similar industry when forming the association in 1956. Based on the economic scenario then (pre-independence), there were 60 people in the trade who joined as members. I could felt the strength of a group. The country has gone through drastic changes. It is hard to find anyone in this industry specialising with a niche or expanding. Would this industry remain to exist or extinct for not having successors to takeover? There were many which have ceased operation. There were also many young ones joining the industry. Nevertheless, few join us as members. Is it due to lack of publicity or is the association not attractive? Time for us to recruit more members to strengthen the association.

 

In conjunction with the celebration of 60th anniversary, our association is planning to have commemorative Pu Er tea bricks and the publication of special issue for the occasion. I hope all members would support the effort and share the joy of the association. Lastly, I hope tea trade continues to develop and all those in tea business to prosper in the expansion of the business.
