MACS Building Fund
The Association has set up a building fund known as the MACS Building Fund in year 2005 with the aim to acquire a building to accommodate MACS official operating unit including a resource and information centre. All contributions to the Fund are welcomed.
In order to secure a proper management to the MACS Building Fund, the fund is currently maintained in a separate bank account named “MACS Building Fund” and shall be used for the purpose of purchasing MACS building only.
