First Alumni Associations Town Hall for Council Members Successfully Convened

The CUHK Business School possesses a strong and extensive alumni network in the Greater China region, with highly successful alumni leaders making valuable contributions in various means. Among all, Alumni Associations and Chapters (AAs) have always been the backbone of our closely bonded regional alumni community. To strengthen mutual understanding and cooperation, the School has recently organised the First Alumni Associations Town Hall for Council Members and invited representatives from AAs to envision and realise a brighter future together.

The Town Hall was held on 28 August (Saturday) in mixed modes, with members from four Hong Kong AAs joining physically at Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong, and members from six AAs in the rest of the Greater China region joining online. Below are the event highlights for a glimpse of their great involvement:
