AUIAC 2008

AUIAC or The Australian Universities International Alumni Convention  was a bi-annual conference that brings together Australian Alumni from around the world. The idea of this convention was to provide opportunities for alumni to network and listen  to known speakers sharing their thoughts on current world issues.

AUIAC was conceived in 1995 at Annual General Meeting of the Australian Universities Alumni Council held in Adelaide, Australia. The first AUIAC was held in Adelaide in 1998, followed by Kuching, Malaysia in 2000; Melbourne, Australia 2002; Hong Kong in 2004, Brisbane, Australia in 2006, and Singapore in 2008.

The convention has been a success under the leadership of the Right Honourable Pehin Sri Dr Haji Adbul Taib Mahmud, Chief Minister of Sarawak, Malaysia. An eminent alumnus of the University of Adelaide, Australia. Pehin Sri Taib has been the Patron of AUIAC since its inception together with the Governor General of Australia as Joint Patron.

And in conjunction with this AUIAC, The University of Newcastle had gathered 15 graduates from ten different regions to participate in this event. Follow with a workshop for Chapters and was successfully held  in UoN Singapore campus on 14 June 2008.

The next AUIAC will be held in Kuching, Sarawak in 2011 and follow by UoN workshop for Chapters.
