Service Appreciation Awards
The Service Appreciation Award (SAA) recognises and celebrates the loyalty and contributions of our dedicated staff. The awards ceremony was held on 8 August 2014. In all, 139 staff received the SAA for service in MAS ranging from five years to 40 years. Nine staff received the 40-year award and one of the recipients, Chua Koh Beng from the Corporate Services Department (CSD), remarked, "I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Management and all my MAS Colleagues for their support and trust in me to deliver my work. This 40-year SAA has a special meaning to me. It signifies an important milestone in my career with MAS. I am fortunate to be given ample opportunities to learn and share together with the rest of the team within the CSD, and across other departments. This has enhanced my confidence in managing my work and handling customers."

Tribute to Pioneers
To pay tribute to MAS pioneers for their contributions during MAS' formative years, a special reunion event was held in their honour on 16 August 2014, coinciding with the MAS Annual Dinner. Over 200 MAS pioneers past and present, and their guests, joined MAS' Chairman, Board members and staff for an evening of fun, entertainment and a walk down memory lane.
