On behalf of the iKMS Executive Committee (EXCO), I am pleased to announce that our next Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday, February 23, 2017. The terms of the 2015/2016 EXCO will conclude at that time and we will hold an election process during the AGM. Ordinary individual members and a nominee from each corporate member have a single voting right and can exercise this during the AGM during election. For corporate members, the member with the voting right needs to submit their name in writing to the Secretary by February 20, 2017.
A strong, dedicated EXCO will ensure that iKMS continues to provide top-quality services for the membership while pursuing the expansion of Knowledge Management in Singapore.
For candidates who are considering to step up and be part of 2017/2018 iKMS EXCO, they must meet the following criteria:

You may wish to refer to the iKMS Constitution for details of the duties and roles of office bearers. Members who wish to propose a motion for the AGM should do so in writing to the Secretary by 16 Feb 2017.
During this AGM, we like to recommend key changes to the current Constitution. I urge you to attend the AGM to understand the rationale behind proposed amendments and cast your votes in that meeting.
If you have any questions related to the AGM process, please do not hesitate to contact the Secretary.
KM Talk: No-Budget KM
Many organisations want to get started in KM, and most times they struggle with getting the budget to start the effort. Actually there are many useful learning techniques to create knowledge, and these do not require substantive funding. These self and team practices are powerful starter habits to promote among staff, and when done effectively, promise exponential gains in knowledge creation, transfer and integration. The presenter, drawing from his more than two decades of experience in KM and learning methods, will share his novel 123X model. Participants will be introduced to how to encourage their co-workers to share observation, build insights, and derive lessons learnt within a very short period of time. The three techniques require no more than an hour to practice effectively.
