UB Alumni Chapter HK Annual Dinner on 1st November, 2008

Dear Hong Kong UB alumni and graduates,

You may be aware that the annual dinner for all UB Hong Kong alumni will be held on 1st November, 2008 at the Ballroom of Kimberley Hotel (TST). This year, we will give a theme – China Night, to our annual dinner, hoping that would make the atmosphere of the evening even better. The Chapter is pledged to organize a memorable evening for you with good entertainment, food and prizes. We have invited a prominent speaker, Mr. Andrew, Wong Wang-fat OBE, JP ( the former Chairman of Legco Hong Kong) as our guest speaker, he will share his interests and experiences with us after his retirement from the political and teaching life in Hong Kong.

I’m sure that you would like to join such fantastic event and appreciate all the works our council members have done for you and the Chapter over the past year. If you want to show your support to us and our work, please sign up for the event as soon as you have received the invitation from the University of Ballarat later. Although this year the council members of the Chapter have finally decided a charge of HK$100 per head (including the lucky draw entry), this small amount is barely enough to cover the drinks and prizes for the evening, not mentioning a decent dinner at the hotel. The reason of raising such charge is to ensure that the Chapter will have enough fund for its future activities.

Attached please find the invitation card from UB for your early registration. I look forward to seeing you all at the annual dinner on 1st November, 2008.

Thank you for your support.

Yours in Ballarat,

Simon Chan


University of Ballarat Alumni Chapter Hong Kong

Dear President of Alumni Assoication,

I am emailing from the Australian Consulate where we are preparing for our Australian Education Festival, August 9-10, at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wanchai.

As part of our promotion of this important event for Australian tertiary institutions, the Consulate wishes to profile some Hong Kong residents who completed their university study as international students in Australia and have since gone on to careers in different, new or particularly outstanding fields.

Appreciate if your alumni association can help us to identify candidates.

We also hope the candidates would allow us to do a press release on his/her study at alma mater and where this had led him/her professionally.

The press release may lead to media interviews which would require to speak with journalists (usually over the phone) to promote the advantages of studying in Australia and educational experiences there.

Thank you for your help in advance.

Best regards,
