The IGAUPM Strategic Planning exercise was coordinated by Prof. Dr.Vikneswaran Nair. After a series of meetings, the draft of the blueprint was presented to the Life Members on 23rd August, 2015 from 3-5pm at Domino Pizza Training Centre (Level 1, SS12) (next to Subang Jaya Medical Centre).
Some feedbacks were also received via email from those members who could not make it to the meeting. Upon the meeting, the final Strategic Plan was revised and sent out to Life Members for final deliberation on 12 January 2016. As there was no further input, the blueprint was adopted and would be presented to members of the Association for endorsement.
