The Film Association of Malawi has disclosed that it is done working on reviewing its constitution to allow members conduct activities online.
This move follows failure by the association to hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) which was scheduled for July this year due to the advent of covid19.
President of the association, Ezaus Mkandawire highlights that what is remaining is for the general assembly to adopt the amended clauses that will allow members to hold online activities such as voting.
Mkandawire observes the move will also help the association to move with time a technology enables individuals to interact with others on important issues while also doing other things in the comfort of their homes or offices.
He said: “All over the world online meetings have become an influential tool of interacting without individuals physically meeting at the same time saving travel and accommodation costs.”
Meanwhile, Mkandawire notes that the new system will be used from next year when the association will be holding its annual elective meeting to usher in new office bearers as the current executive’s tenure expired this year.
However, Mkandawire could not confirm the exact dates when the association intends to hold its AGM.
Among the positions up for grabs are that of the president, secretary treasurer and members of the executive committee.
