I think to be a HKOTA members, we should enjoy benefits from our association and for their "affiliated" club, we should have sponsorship annually.
HKOTA provides any benefits to members? Journals (4 journals annually! We can have thousand if enter EKG for FREE or even go to google can obtain somr free full pdf journals for FREE also)? Discounts to some academic meetings (the time of meetings always set at office hour, is it possible for NGO or even HA settings allow staff to attend such meetings regularly)?
May be I am too radical, but I dont think HKOTA provide enough benefits to members. Apart from academic benefits, it provides nothing to non-academic activities!!! This FC is set up by ourself but winning the glory to HKOTA without support!!!
We are not beggar, we are not asking for ridiculous sponsorship. $200 for a team jersey (shirt and short with name, number, logo and a pair of sock) is too expensive??? How come, $200 is unable to cost a quarter of money of their Gucci coins bag!!!
I am sick and maybe i have delirium, but ... annual sponsorship from HKOTA is what I am striving for!!!
