The Sixth Standing Committee of the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) Convocation pledged to unite alumni in support of the University’s development at its inauguration ceremony on 30 May.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Lester Garson Huang, CityU Council Chairman, said he was confident that the new Standing Committee would accomplish its mission.

Professor Way Kuo, CityU President, thanked the new Standing Committee members for their time and effort. He wished them every success under the leadership of Mr Robert Lui Chi-wang, Convocation Chairman.
The new Standing Committee has introduced the theme “Wellness” for its new term. The aim is to promote mental, physical and spiritual health in the alumni community through activities and services, Mr Lui stressed.
