About the Secretariat
In April 2012 the KL State Council took a bold step after months of searching to rent the office unit in Sungai Besi, near the fringes of Kuala Lumpur. Located on the second floor, the 1800 square feet office provides a workspace for the Full Time Officer and houses assets of the KL State BB. It has a conference room, two office spaces (one which is to be rented out), a storeroom, two bathrooms and the dining area. It is just a five minute walk from an LRT station and 5 minutes drive to and from the Terminal Bersepadu, making it very accessible.
The conference room is open for use by BB companies (not just the ones in KL) and other Christian orgnisations for meetings and training sessions, though a minimum one week booking is required. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 03-90544722 for more inquiries.
