MASL Ex­ec­u­tive to Meet with Saint Lu­cia PM

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The new ex­ec­u­tive of the Me­dia As­so­ci­a­tion of Saint Lu­cia will be meet­ing with Prime Min­is­ter Allen Chas­tanet be­tween late Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. Among items for dis­cus­sion will be the me­dia’s re­la­tion­ship with the govern­ment and politi­cians, train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and po­ten­tial ar­eas of col­lab­o­ra­tion. As such, all mem­bers, in­clud­ing me­dia own­ers, man­agers and in­ter­ested per­sons, are in­vited to an Ex­tra­or­di­nary Gen­eral Meet­ing and Greet­ing slated for Sun­day Jan­uary 15th, 2017 at 3:00pm at The Land­ings Re­sort.

This EGM will also serve as the of­fi­cial in­tro­duc­tion of your new ex­ec­u­tive to over­see MASL’s af­fairs un­til April 2018 and an op­por­tu­nity for me­dia pro­fes­sion­als to get more ac­quainted with each other. Agenda items will in­clude the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s mem­ber­ship drive, av­enues for train­ing and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, Me­dia Awards (po­ten­tial date: May 2017), the ur­gent es­tab­lish­ment of sub­com­mit­tees, and the re­cent and con­cern­ing trend of apolo­gies is­sued by me­dia houses. Mem­bers in good stand­ing are also re­minded to send a pic­ture of them­selves to the Trea­surer Glen Si­mon in order to re­ceive their MASL cards on that day.

As we have con­stantly ar­tic­u­lated, there is strength in num­bers, and the Me­dia As­so­ci­a­tion ex­ec­u­tive is ap­peal­ing to all mem­bers to at­tend this very im­por­tant meet­ing and so­cial event.
