Hello from the Co-Presidents of the very newly launched University of Waterloo Alumni Chapter in Vancouver, BC!
As you may know, the official chapter launch took place with much excitement and splendour on April 10, 2014. It was attended by UWaterloo President Feridun Hamdullahpur, several senior representatives and faculty from the University, and 160 alumni residing in and around Vancouver.
We have been overwhelmed by the interest and involvement of UWaterloo alumni in Vancouver. In fact, even before the official chapter launch last week, we hosted a very fun and successful networking event at a pub in Gastown, as well as a ski trip to Whistler. Several volunteers have already expressed interest in the planning and operations of the Vancouver chapter, and many are already at work to help us meet our goal of being the best UWaterloo alumni chapter in the galaxy. Maybe even the universe...
Our plans for this next year include facilitating opportunities to network, mentor, and socialize. We plan to host some small events in the next few months - feel free to send any suggestions our way. Our next major event will be an Oktoberfest party sometime in... October! We will be posting updates and sending emails as details emerge.
Keep in touch with us through one or all of the following mechanisms:
Bye for now!
