We have completed 4 general meetings and rounds of sub-group meetings and started discussing with external developers and organizations for work-related agenda.

 

Major decisions are made via voting where consensus from executives would be sought for yielding buy-in to work deliverables.  In this approach, our executives are geared to work toward our common goals. 

 

Before closing, I would like to thank all our MAG executives and patrons once again for their generosity and commitment offered to AFO in achieving the visions we share.
