A new framework
Officially formed by the University and registered as a subsidiary, HKMUAA is
governed by the Board of Directors, under which is the Executive Committee
(ExCom) fully composed of alumni responsible for strengthening alumni
engagement. 'As the alumni community grows, the University is determined
to foster closer ties with alumni and strengthen alumni networks. Following
University retitling last year, a comprehensive review of the structure of its
current alumni bodies was conducted and the new umbrella alumni association
was established,' says Prof. Lui Yu-hon, Vice President (Resources and Development)
cum Chairman of HKMUAA's Board of Directors.
'Many of our alumni groups were formed based on academic programmes,
interests and geographical connections. It is anticipated that HKMUAA will act
as an effective platform to render support to the alumni groups. They shall be
represented on the ExCom by sending candidates to run for seats reserved
for them, and work side by side with HKMUAA to formulate activities and services
catering for the interests and needs of alumni,' continues Prof. Lui.
