PA3i and the Australia-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce (ANZCHAM), together with the IDP Education Pty Ltd, jointly hosted the Australia-New Zealand Alumni Fellowship Dinner-Dance on 19 November 2011 at the Grand Ballroom of the InterContinental Hotel in Makati City.
It was an occasion to celebrate education and excellence, but moreso, the strengthening of our partnership with the ANZCHAM, IDP, and Australian universities and educational institutions.
With robust sponsorship from major Australian universities such as Curtin University, Flinders University, Griffith University, University Technology Sydney, University of Newcastle, Swinburne University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Melbourne, and local corporations and institutions such as Vineyard International Polytechnic College, Media 2 Six and Interserve, the event was well-attended and a success.
The event was graced by His Excellency Ambassador Rod Smith, Board Directors of the ANZCHAM, PA3i Trustees, top officials of ANZCHAM member companies, and other dignitaries and prominent persons. The event opened with cocktails and an address from Ambassador Smith and continued on to a dance presentation from the Arellano University Chief Squad. Everyone enjoyed the sumptuous dinner served and danced the night away with band music provided by The Bloom Brothers–indeed a great way to celebrate friendships and partnerships between and among participating institutions.
