Launch Ceremony of Pakistan IBA Chapter in Dubai


July 4, 2013 proved to be a milestone for the IBA Alumni fraternity in Dubai. It was the day that marked the launch of the Pakistan IBA Chapter (PIC) in Dubai under the aegis of Pakistan Association of Dubai (PAD). The ceremony attracted more than 100 alums from all corners of UAE which was held at the scenic residence of Mr. and Mrs. Waqar Siddique, both IBA Alumnus of 80ís.

Earlier in May, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with PAD which allowed PIC to raise funds for IBA, create awareness of IBA and its alumni as an institution and support projects patronized by IBA in Pakistan and Pakistani community in the UAE. To accomplish these goals, a formal launch ceremony was organized where Alumni would be taken on board of the achievement and requested to acquire membership of PIC.

Despite a hot and humid evening, moods were enlivened by the rustic environs of the Emirates Hills as IBA Alumni, clad in their formal attire, attended the ceremony. The gathering was also attended by members of Pakistan Association of Dubai, Pakistan Professional Wing and Chartered Accountants Wing. The interim President of the PIC, Danish Kazi introduced to the audience the purpose of making the chapter and how members can contribute towards the welfare of not only their alma mater but their country as well. Every member will be required to pay a fee of AED 300 of which AED 50 will go towards membership and AED 250 will be utilized in conducting activities of the Chapter. The audience was informed that Elections of PIC will be held on Saturday August 17, 2013 whereas the last date of nomination is August 01, 2013.

The interim General Secretary, Fahad Ali highlighted the achievements of the Dubai Alumni Chapter since its inception and presented a timeline for the way forward. An Iftar Dinner, a number of networking and guest speaker sessions and a Gala in December were some of the events outlined for 2013.

Patron of PIC and host of the evening, Mr. Waqar Siddique announced his continued support to the cause of IBA and urged fellow alumni to come forward in helping their alma mater achieve new heights. Almost 60 alumni enrolled themselves as members by paying the membership fee which met the condition of PIC Charter to hold elections within a minimum of 50 members.

The evening culminated with a scrumptious dinner laid out on the pool side overlooking the golf course which whetted the appetite of those present.
