Annual General Meeting and International Buffet Dinner

The University of Melbourne Alumni Association Singapore (UMAAS) was pleased to invite alumni to join them for a delicious buffet dinner on Sunday 25 May. The event was very well received with more than 60 rsvps. Also attending the event was special guest of honour Ms Tracy Harris, Australian Trade Commissioner. The alumni had the opportunity to hear from two fascinating guest speakers during the evening: Mr Kevin Gin, CFA, who spoke about China and how the country would restructure its economy allowing for sustainable economic growth; Mr David James Watson who spoke about how values have shaped him as a person and enabled him to achieve hugely significant things such as his Earth Hour and Palm Oil campaigns as well as raising funds for sustainable clean water by running 250km across the Gobi Desert.

Thanking everyone who has made the event a huge success. A special thanks to the Tracy, Kevin, David, and all alumni presidents / representatives from the various alumni associations (Monash, RMIT, UTS, South Australia, Murdoch, Adelaide) for gracing our event.

Congratulations to the new leadership team: Danny J (President); Andrew Swee (Vice President); Kelvin Koh (Treasurer); and Bryan Tan (Secretary).

I wish the new leadership team all success in the coming year !

Melvin Gwee
Outgoing UMAAS President
