Western Australia Chapter Annual Dinner

20 Nov 2017 2:32 PM | Vanessa Adams (Administrator)
The Western Australian Chapter of the Fulbright Alumni Association held their annual dinner on Thursday 12th October.  With a healthy turn-out of fifty-four people, including alumni and partners, registrants enjoyed the beautiful outlook over the Swan River, as well as a sumptuous three-course meal courtesy of Acqua Viva in Nedlands (also known as JoJos Restaurant).  Keynote speaker Prof. Ray Wills from the University of Western Australia spoke on “Preparing for the Clean Tech Tsunammi” in a lecture that reflected on the rapid pace of economic and technological change in the modern era. The US Consul General for Western Australia, Rachel Cooke, gave a welcome address, in which she urged the alumni to continue their recruiting efforts for the Fulbright scholarship program.  Dr Jonathan Paget, President of the WA Chapter, gave a brief overview of the WA chapter’s 2017 activities, including statements from recently returned WA alumni Craig McCormack and Shraddha Kashyap. Also in attendance was Dr Pablo Jimenez, Alumni Relations Manager at the Fulbright Commission (Canberra).
