Welcome to all our existing and newly registered Alumni Network members at the start of another academic year. The first couple of weeks are some of the most high-octane and memorable moments of the year and it is always thrilling to welcome a new cohort of students to the Academy.
Back in the Alumni Network office, we are busy organising our events calendar which includes preparations for our 1980s Reunion planned for October 2014. If you studied here in the 1980s watch this space and do urge anyone who we may not have up-to-date contact details for, to contact us.
Our other preoccupations include the ongoing establishment of our international network. We warmly welcome Japan and Korea to the already thriving Hong Kong network, and we are busy establishing a centre in Australia. Visit the International Operations page on our website to see how things are shaping up. You will also notice that we are now listing all external/regional Academy events each term on our Events page. We hope you will be able to get to an event in your area and are working on a series of alumni social events that will tie in with the calendar.
Much of our work continues to be focussed on reaching alumni. To that end we continually review and update our website and social media presence – welcome to our LinkedIn users. We have also just put up a news wall on our Facebook page for members who would like to post up specific news of events, successes and opportunities.
Incidentally, we need much more information from you all on your successes and achievements and would ask you to send any professional career highlights to us at anytime and in any format.
Finally, look out for my new monthly BLOG through which I’m hoping to keep Academy news flowing your way.
Very best wishes for the Autumn from the whole team, and hoping to see you soon.
