The Executive Council of the Singapore Association for the Deaf (SADeaf) wishes to announce that Ms Sylvia Teng has stepped down from her position as Executive Director and relinquished her appointment with effect from 10 Jan 2019 to pursue other interests. SADeaf has commenced the search for a new Executive Director. In the interim, Mr Ernest Toh, Administrator of the Mountbatten Vocational School operated by SADeaf, will cover her duties until a new Executive Director has been appointed.
SADeaf would like to thank Ms Teng for her services to the Association and her invaluable contributions to the community. Ms Teng first joined SADeaf as a volunteer on its Executive Council, serving as Honorary Secretary, and was appointed Executive Director in 2016. Since her appointment, she led her team to organise and deliver many activities and programmes for our Deaf and Hard-of-hearing members, clients, friends and supporters and created greater public awareness of our Deaf and Hard-of-hearing community.
“It has been an honour for me to serve as SADeaf’s Executive Director for the last three years. I truly value the opportunity to work alongside like-minded colleagues who are dedicated to improve SADeaf’s services and programmes. I have achieved what I set out to do and I believe it is now the right time for me to step down to pursue my own interests.” said Ms Teng.
“On behalf of the Executive Council, we are very grateful for her contributions to SADeaf for the past three years as an Executive Director. We would like to thank her for her commitments and wish her success in her future endeavours,” said President Martin Marini.
