Dear Honorable Members,
It is a proud and historic moment for me as I introduce myself to you as the President of Karachi Club. I am highly indebted to Almighty Allah for this honor and thankful to all my venerated members for electing me unopposed as their President. I extend my deepest felicitation to the Managing Committee (MC) members on their unopposed election. The portfolios assigned to them are purely on merit considering their professional expertise, aptitude and inclination to take up assorted challenges. It is certainly a great pride for me be working with such a bright and learned team. I assure my worthy members that I, along with my MC, shall make every effort to live up to their expectation and leave no stone unturned to achieve our goals. Immediately after assuming office, I got the opportunity to visit project site to monitor progress. I have stressed upon the need to complete unfinished work on war footing basis, particularly to resolve the technical glitches in Basement Number Four which are the cause of delay in the completion of the project. Conversely, I had meeting with MEP consultant representative to deliberate work progress, installation and commissioning schedule and material being used. Previous MC had invited Expression of Interest (EOI) for super structure – some fifteen firms have shown interest to take part in the bidding - EOI received have been forwarded to project consultant for vetting and short listing firms. Bringing perfection and improvement in the existing club amenities is another key assignment for me. We plan to replace obsolete paraphernalia with most recent apparatus. Drastic measures are being taken to facelift the ambiance of the club. My vision is to launch an automated facility management system and order taking through tablets to replace the orthodox order taking system. In this regard, regular meetings are being held to discuss the plan of action and prompt execution – Insha’Allah you will observe a significant improvement in the facilities within a short span of time. Rules & Regulations, Bylaws and Polices will be enforced in true letter and spirit. Resources will be used judiciously in right direction, merit and transparency will be preserved. Employees are the backbone and wardens of the institution, thus I expect them to carry out their duties with full responsibility and dedication. All valuable suggestions and feedback of the members are most welcome as without these, achievements of results are impossible. Happy New Year!
