Why did we register with ROS?
The benefit of being officially registered is that we are now a legitimate legal entity in Singapore. This allows us to organize events and solicit sponsorships locally.
What did registration require?
The main requirement was for us to be properly organized. We needed a proper constitution, a set of officers, and a registration fee of $300 among other things.
We have a constitution?
Yes. And we are now obligated to follow it strictly as part of being a registered society. We strongly encourage all members to read through the constitution.
Am I still a member of PFC-SG?
As of being registered on 29 April 2015, we essentially are starting from scratch: no pre-existing business, no pre-existing obligations. Prior to this date, PFC-SG did not exist. This means that everyone must go through our application process and pay the annual membership fee of $24 before becoming a member for 1-year (renewable annually).
I am a league player. Anything else that I must do?
League players must apply for PFC-SG membership.
What happens to any funds we originally had?
In principle, these will be carried over to our newly-registered club’s funds. The good news is that one of the big obligations of being ROS-registered is keeping and reporting accountability of our funds and cash flow. Our Treasurer will be in charge of this.
Who are our officers?
Joseph Uichanco, Ken Chu, and Mark Medalla are our President, Secretary, and Treasurer, respectively.
So, what must I do now?
