RHT Law's Partner, Azman Jaafar, was recently featured in cyberpioneer (the Internet version of the SAF's monthly magazine, PIONEER) in its article titled "MINDEF thanks its volunteers".
He was presented a certificate by Dr Ng Eng Hen during MINDEF's appreciation dinner, in recognition of his appointment as Chairman of the Executive Committee of SAFRA Jurong Clubhouse, and to the Management Committee of SAFRA for a term of two years. When asked about what motivates him to give of his time, he replies: "It's about doing something meaningful with my time - If I can play a part in furthering the interest of a group as large as the Operationally-ready NSmen fraternity, it's a worthwhile objective to achieve."
Apart from this, Azman was awarded a Public Service Medal (Pingat Bakti Masyarakat, PBM) by the President of the Republic of Singapore in 2007 in recognition of his volunteer and contribution as a councillor with Northeast Community Development Council (CDC). He was also recently awarded the Long Service Award from Northeast CDC.
