Officer Cadet Orientation 15 September 2012
The second Officer Cadet Orientation took place on 15 September 2012, with a total of 59 Officer Cadets in attendance. Modules were conducted over the course of the day to arm them with knowledge about their roles as Officers and also on the Boys' Brigade organization.
Starting off the day’s presentation was Mr Desmond Koh, our Executive Director who shared on the BB's vision, missions and goals, as well as methods and beliefs of the organization. He used several case studies to assist the Officer Cadets to relate better to the topics.
Other Brigade leaders also took time to share their vast experience with the new Officers. Our Vice-President (Operations), Mr Poh Leong Berg, shared on the structures, guidelines and governance of the BB. He also covered the roles and responsibilities of BB officers in the companies.
Mr Vincent Tan, Vice-President (Programmes), covered the challenges of operating a BB Company and shared some of the best practices in running a successful BB Company. To conclude the day, a short quiz was conducted to help the Officers to reinforce their learning before they leave.
