This is an immense pleasure on my part as President of Australia Alumni Association Bangladesh ( AAAB ) to greet and welcome all our distinguished Alumni at home and abroad. I took the charge as President of AAAB for the term of 2020 - 2021 through an election in December 2019 held in its last Annual General Meeting ( AGM ).
I took the responsibility of leading the organization at a time when I found AAAB was struggling a bit as an organisation. As elected President of AAAB , I was very keen and firm in my conviction to make AAAB a dynamic, effective and transparent organisation. The year 2020 was a year of devastation for Mankind due to deadly Covid - 19 pandemic all over the world which took away hundreds and thousands of lives across the globe. Despite being in the middle of this crisis , Australia Alumni Association Bangladesh ( AAAB ) was active throughout the year and tried to keep connected with our Alumni through many activities. Not only locally, AAAB had its international exposure as well. For the first time in its history AAAB held a bilateral virtual meeting with its Fijian counterpart Fiji - Australia Alumni Association which I believe truly opened up a new avenue for Australia Alumni Association Bangladesh ( AAAB ) in its quest to reach out international counterparts and represent the association and Bangladesh in particular in the international arena.
With some dedicated Executive Committee ( EC ) members in my team, I am fully determined to carry on the good works AAAB is doing and determined to take AAAB to its desired height seeing which every Alumni will be proud of to be associated with this esteemed organisation.
