Dear Fellow Alumni,

Last year, we saw a change in the leadership of our alma mater with the retirement of Dr. Colin Dodds as the 33rd President and the appointment of Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray as the 34th President and Vice-Chancellor of St. Mary’s University.

In May 2015, we held a farewell gathering in honour of Dr. Colin Dodds who came with his wife Carol. We were grateful that a delegation representing the Halifax Port Authority also joined us for the event.

In September 2015, we were invited to a Welcome Cocktail Party with Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray. This great event was hosted by St. Mary’s University and all members of St. Mary’s University Alumni Hong Kong Chapter joining the party had the honour of meeting not only our new president, but also the Premier of Nova Scotia – Mr. Stephen McNeil and the Consul General of Canada in Hong Kong and Macao – Mr. J. Ian Burchett.

Since the official establishment of the Hong Kong Chapter in May 2014, we held our first Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Tuesday, April 12, 2016. Details of the election can be seen here.

In this year, the Hong Kong Chapter intends to organize at least 3 functions for our alumni reunion. The first event was a lunch gathering with the Dean of the Sobey Business School, Dr. Patricia Bradshaw, held on Sunday, April 17, 2016.

For those who enjoyed the luncheon gathering and for those who missed the first event, the next event will be a casual gathering scheduled to be held on Friday, July 8. More details will be announced shortly.

Warmest Regards,

Katie Lin
