Alumni Online Gatherings with President Chin (Australia/New Zealand and Ontario/US East Coast)

Event Information

A series of online gatherings, jointly organised by the Alumni Affairs Office (AAO) and various overseas Alumni Associations, were held in November and December. The main purpose of these online gatherings is to set up a virtual session through ZOOM where overseas alumni could meet with President Prof. Roland Chin, before he retires by the end of 2020. The first two online gatherings had been successfully held.

On 28 November, an alumni gathering organized for Australia and New Zealand alumni, was graced by the presence of President Chin, Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) Dr. Albert Chau and Director of Alumni Affairs Dr. Melanie Lee in person and Associate Vice-President (Engagement) Mr. CK Yeung via Zoom. Dr. Melanie Lee served as the moderator of the gathering, which attracted over 50 guests and alumni residing in Australia and New Zealand. All alumni participated in a happy dialogue with President Chin via Zoom. At the gathering, President of HKBU Alumni Association of Australia alumnus Sidney Cheng shared with participants the development of the Association since its inception in 2008 and reminisced about the precious and joyful memories of President Chin’s visit to Sydney, Australia in 2016 and 2018 respectively.

Meanwhile around 60 alumni residing in Ontario and the East Coast of the US participated in another online gathering held on 7 December. Alumnus Alfred Au Yeung, President of HKBU Alumni Association of Ontario shared with President Chin, Dr. Albert Chau, Dr. Melanie Lee and other attending guests and alumni the latest development of the Association.

During these two gatherings, alumni not only provided their insights about the development of the University but also had a nice chat with President Chin. They also took the opportunity to bid farewell to President Chin, thanking him for his significant contributions to the University over the past 5 years and wishing him a happy retirement. In the meantime, President Chin expressed his deep appreciation to alumni for their staunch support for the University in the past years.
