Chairman's Message

Dear Members,

First, may I as Chairman of Convocation welcome the eight newly-elected members to the Standing Committee (SC), subsequent to the election held at the Ordinary General Meeting last Thursday (22 June 2017). They represent different backgrounds and indeed different generations, and it is this dynamism and diversity that our alma mater celebrates and treasures. OGM Election Result:

Second, as you have been informed in previous emails, the University Council has set up a Search Committee and a Selection Committee to facilitate the appointment of the next President & Vice-Chancellor. President Professor Peter Mathieson will be leaving HKU latest by January 2018. The Selection Committee will comprise, inter-alios, an alumnus/alumna elected by the Convocation. Nominations are now invited for this election. The Clerk of Convocation hereby issues the Notice of Nomination today as below

I look forward to your support.

Yours truly,
Patrick Poon
Chairman of Convocation
