The CUASC (Curtin University Alumni Singapore Chapter) Alumni Executive Committee gathered for their first meeting in May, following the Annual General Meeting held in April.
The meeting, hosted by the newly elected President, Mr. James Chen, PBM, marked the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the committee. Rather than diving straight into the usual business, Mr James Chen took a different approach. He set the tone for his term by encouraging committee members to share their personal inspirations for serving on the committee and the outcomes they hoped to achieve for CUASC.
It was a session that emphasized the 'why' behind our collective dedication. In the course of this thoughtful discussion, it became evident that the driving force behind our committee is a profound pride in being Curtin graduates. We share a strong desire to network with fellow graduates and to contribute to the school's legacy, making our alma mater proud.
This realization brought clarity and alignment to our purpose. As the renowned leader and former Prime Minister of Australia, John Curtin, once said: "The world can never be helped merely by talking or writing about it. You must set to work on it. You must, for example, be prepared to face inconvenience and discomfort, and, in the interest of others, to sacrifice your pleasure." These words resonate deeply with the CUASC Alumni Executive Committee.
Our commitment is rooted in action, in the belief that positive change comes from dedicated service. We are not just a committee; we are a community of Curtin graduates driven by a shared vision and a determination to make a difference.
We can continue to uphold the values and legacy of Curtin University and contribute to our community in Singapore. The journey ahead promises to be one of growth, unity, and service. With our shared vision and the legacy of John Curtin as our guiding light, we are excited to see what we can achieve together as a united CUASC community.
I would like to invite all like-minded individuals who are passionate about serving and making a meaningful impact to join us. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization, and we welcome anyone who shares our commitment to contact Mr. Matthew Loo at 8163 0610.
