Taiwan Alumni Gather at AGM and Annual Dinner


On Saturday 29 April, the CUHK Business School Taiwan Alumni Association convened its third session of the third Annual General Meeting and hosted a dinner at Taipei’s famous Grand Hotel.  

The gathering was hosted by Mr. Cheng-chiou Chang, the alumni association’s president, and attended by over 100 alumni and friends. Several guests from the Business School flew to Taipei for the event, including Prof. Jeff Yeung, Director of the EMBA (Chinese) Program; Prof. Timon Du, who works in the Department of Decision Sciences and Managerial Economics; Ms. Florence Lai, Director of the Alumni and Corporate Affairs Office; and Mr. So Chun, Administrative Director of the EMBA Program. 

Throughout the evening, attendees enjoyed meeting with old classmates and making new acquaintances. In addition to delicious Taiwanese delicacies and live entertainment featuring dancing and magic, participants also took part in an election resulting in the birth of a new Executive Committee.

The highlight of the evening came when President CC Chang reviewed the alumni association’s activities during the past year and expressed admiration for his successor, Mr. Jung-Tsung Wei, and the new leadership team. Afterwards, Prof. Jeff Yeung gave a speech and congratulated the new leaders. He also encouraged alumni to fully utilise their extensive network to expand the influence of the Business School. “Alumni are our most valuable assets. We count on every one of you to extend our community’s reach and grow our global reputation,” he said. After the speech, guests joined hands and sang the song “You and I,” ending the gathering on a memorable note. 

Ms. Florence Lai was very pleased with the event, which was well received by the participants. “With the help of the new Executive Committee, I am confident we can work together to build a bigger and stronger alumni network in Taiwan,” she said.
