I would like to propose to include the ASSOCIATE MEMBERS besides the only MEMBER ASSOCIATIONS in NAAM.
The MEMBER ASSOCIATIONS are all the State Archery Associations from Malaysia including FT Kuala Lumpur and Labuan.
The ASSOCIATE MEMBERS are institutions or companies (MBSA, TNB, MASUM, ATM, PDRM, MSSM, UUM, Big-Shot Archery, King's Archery........... etc.). They may attend the Delegate General Meeting and may speak, but have no vote.
The Associate Members do not have to produce any Licence approved by the Registrar of Societies. They only have to give a Statement clearly accepting the NAAM Constitution and paid the membership fee.
This is in line with FITA Constitution Art.1.3.5 & Art.1.4.6
We have to be careful in allowing MSSM, MASUM, ATM, PDRM and other big organisations to be Member Associations of NAAM. Think first: Is MSSM or MASUM or ATM or PDRM solely having ARCHERY in their constitutions? Archery is only one of the activities they are interested. The one representing the organization to NAAM may not be agreed by the President of the organization and the President may not be committed.
