2017 has been a challenging year but the good news is, its ending soon and time for us to reflect.
To kick-start the year of 2017, we have revamped and introduced a new committee with Daryl Yap at the helm to bring us to the next level and VWClubMalaysia officially a registered society with registration no PPM-003-14-17012017 since 17 Jan 2017.
We had a lot of ambitious plans, some took us longer than we thought while others were a hit overnight. We set forth to put VWClubMalaysia on relevant trending social media platforms to reach our audience. Engagement levels out the pass year has exceeded our expectations. Fan growth has continued both on our Instagram and Facebook groups through a thorough outreach program.
Picture paints a thousand words and with that, lets look at the some highlights of 2017
