AGM Dinner

HKUAAO hosted our 2023 AGM and Dinner on December 9th Saturday at Lobster Port Seafood Cuisine. The 2024 Board of Directors was successfully elected before dinner commenced. The dinner was well attended by over 120 Alumni and friends.
From the 120+ guests , about 50 were newcomers of HKU , who just arrived at Toronto within the past 2 years. We have engaged them in helping as MCs, singing performers, stage assistants, photographer and receptionists . The dinner reception was enjoyed by all at a warm, friendly and relaxed ambience. All our directors have donated gifts for lucky draw, wine and cash money for expenses, and above all, we had very good audio and sound support from a professional production company. There were 5 singers , all HKU alumni members, who have generously shared with us their stage talents. Our directors in charge of New Comer Program and Mentors Support Program gave their reports. We recruited more than 10 new members on the dinner night.
Also attended were JU representatives from the other universities from Hong Kong, namely: Chinese University, Baptist University, Polytechnic University, City University, Science and Technology University, Chu Hoi University, Shu Yan University and Ling Nan University ( in no particular Order ) We thank them in their support.
The President presented her report pledging all our alumni to support our 2024 activities and particularly pledging for support from our JU alumni associations in HKUAAO’s lead in JU activities in 2024.
The AGM dinner ended with a cordial note : group singing and group photo.and we must thank all those who offered carpooling for newcomers who have yet to find their way around Greater Toronto Area.
Last but not least, we thank the Organizing Committee and Work Group for putting together such a memorable event.
