Ladies and gentlemen, let me take this opportunity on my own behalf and on behalf of the Executive Committee to wish you and your family a happy and a prosperous 2019.
We hope the new year will mark a watershed of activities that would once more put our Association on another pedestal as far as engagement and member activities are concerned.
We cap 2018 as the year when the Association was formally registered. We thank you for being part of the membership that has been able to invigorate it through targeted welfare and community social responsibility activities.
The year saw us initiate the Group Last Expense insurance policy for the membership. So far this has been a success and a pace setter in the alumni world. We envision increased membership in 2019 in order to make our Association a robust home for A’bad Wallas, and on this note, I encourage each one of us to continue being an Ambassador and reach out to all unregistered Alumni wherever they may be on the globe.
With a view of increasing member participation, we shall introduce member loyalty points to be earned as one participates in Association’s activities.
The rewards will vary from special membership status to other kinds of awards to be decided by the executive.
We will kick start the year 2019 with a seminar titled: From Employment to Deployment : Utilising the cyber space; Excellence and integrity. This will be followed by a re-look at alternative investment avenues for the Association.
Our brand new Alumni Chapter of Western Kenya shall be officially launched in the new year.
Further to this, we anticipate to start two publications for the Association – one a journal, and the other a magazine. We are currently trying to pursue an ISBN number for the journal. The journal will be a multi disciplinary in nature and shall have close links with our mother university at the Editorial Board level for purposes of peer review.
Once more I wish you a happy and prosperous 2019.
Dr Charles Nyambuga,
Chairman, Dr. BAMU Alumni Association – Kenya
