The BGM began with a half-day recollection given by Fr Sylvester Ding. Two main papers were given namely ‘Introduction to the Theology of the Body’ by NFASM President Dr LL Chan of Kuching and ‘Is Billings Ovulation Method of Natural Family Planning a Contraceptive Method?’ by Vice-President, Dr John Wong of Penang. The rest of the time was taken up by various sharings on outreach work from different parts of the country.
The BGM proper was held in the afternoon of 9 December. Dr John Wong was elected the new President while Dr LL Chan is the new Vice-President. Dr Wong requested Chan to continue to coordinate education, training and scientific matters.
