MMC currently boasts over 60 community member groups. In 2023, we successfully held four leadership meetings and our Annual General Meeting (AGM). Starting in 2024, we plan to convene member meetings every two months to ensure more frequent engagement and participation. 

In 2023, we invited speakers and officials to address our members, empowering them to address their own community issues. Every Leadership meeting was concluded with a dinner and discussion session.  

Recognizing the unique challenges faced by our members, our board members and staff offer one-on-one support sessions as needed. 

MMC publishes a quarterly newsletter to keep members informed. Additionally, we provide regular updates and engage with our community through weekly notices and social media platforms. Presently, we have more than 2,000 followers on our social media page.
