Outreach is Reaching Out
As you will be aware, the Government recently raised the DORSCON alert level to Orange due to the continuing Covid-19 virus situation in Singapore.
In line with the recommendation that non-essential large events should be deferred or cancelled, we will be postponing the below event with a view to rescheduling at a later date:
We will keep the situation under review and provide further relevant updates to our members via email and the Society’s website. Should you have any queries in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact our Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Seeking Expressions of Interest from Socially Responsible Corporates
As a part of its Outreach initiatives, the SCL(S) will be continuing to support Habitat For Humanity, an established charitable organisation that provides affordable housing for the less fortunate. A well-known set of programs of Habitat for Humanity are their single and multi-day builds in neighbouring cities and countries.
The SCL(S) is looking to support Habitat for Humanity through the participation in one of these builds. In the interest of ensuring that we have the required committed level of participation, the SCL(S) Council is seeking expressions of interest from any companies that would be willing to provide the minimum level of participation; and cover the minimum associated costs. In return, when registrations are opened up to the SCL(S) membership, the SCL(S) would refer to the initiative as a collaboration with the participating company(ies) in all promotional campaigns.
The contribution would be from approximately $4,500, for a 1 day build in Batam, to $5,500, for a 2 day build in Batam. There are other options in other countries too.
If you are looking for an opportunity to give something back to the community and also receive some recognition for your Corporate Social Responsibility contributions, please get in touch with us by 31 March 2020:
