HKTX Annual General Meeting 2013 and Texas Independence Day Dinner


From Newsletter #4:

Our Annual General Meeting was held on March 9.  Last year we had the AGM in Modern China Restaurant in Times Square.  We found the place matched our requirement so much that we decided to have the AGM in this place again.

The meeting started at 6:30pm.  Victor Nip as the outgoing President gave a report of the activities that we had done in the previous year, followed by Carl Sung as the outgoing Treasurer delivering a report about the finance of the organization.  It was then election time.  Despite having only one cabinet candidate standing for election, Victor as the President candidate gave a detailed plan about what the incoming Executive Committee wanted to achieve.  After the voting, which unanimously confirmed the candidate as the new Exco, Victor gave an acceptance speech, which includes the following paragraph which the Exco wants to highlight:

Winning the votes is not enough for us.  The much more important thing that we want to win is your participation.  I am asking for your time to join us in the future, to enjoy the company of our fellow alumni, and if you have been joining our events regularly, I am asking you to continue to join us more, and take your Longhorn friends along when you attend our events.  Your participation would make all our efforts worthwhile.  So, stayed tuned for our future events!

After the dinner, some of the participants went to Academia together for some drinks and some chats.  It was 11pm when the group called it a day.

The newly elected Exco wants to take this opportunity to thank the participants of the meeting, especially Patrick Chen for taking the responsibility of Election Officer.
