IBA Alumni Islamabad Chapter - Annual Iftaar 2016

By Haseeb Alam (MBA, Alumnus 2003)

The annual Iftaar Reunion of IBA Alumni Islamabad Chapter, held on June 17, 2016 at Aura Grande Islamabad, was a memorable event with an impressive turnout by the fraternity. The members of IBA Alumni represented the graduating classes from 1970’s till the recent times, hence it wouldn’t be wrong to say that it was a perfect blend of youth and experience.

The venue, ambiance and the food were in keeping with the magnificence of the event. What made the event special was the fact that no matter how diverse the fields and graduating years of the Alumni members were, the common background of their Alma Mater gave them the semblance of a family and they mingled with effortless ease.

The spectrum of the participants who showed up for the event was amazing. Not only was the diversity evident, one could hear each and every one sharing their experiences right from the Public, Private and Social sectors encompassing Oil & Gas, Power, Telecom, IT, Banking and Manufacturing to mention a few. Every member had a telling tale to share from the good old IBA days and what helped each one of them in rising through the ranks. The best part was the addition of new faces to the fraternity, signifying the drive within to interact with the ones based in the twin cities and grasp all that was possible while strengthening the common bond.

The discussions meandered many times and touched upon topics such as the time spent at IBA, the improvement in the infrastructure of IBA, politics, sports, information about various industries and companies to name a few. However, the main discussion hovered around devising ways to facilitate the Alumni and give back to the Institute. On the whole, it was a wonderful and enchanted gathering of the members of IBA Alumni. Most of the Alumni members were of the view that such events must be continued to be held frequently as a means to develop and promote the IBA fraternity residing in Islamabad.

Using this forum the IBA Alumni Chapter Islamabad would like to thank all the participants for gracing the occasion with their presence and would be looking forward with even more participation in the events to follow. We would request the IBA alumni in Islamabad, Rawalpindi and KPK who are not on the mailing list of the Islamabad chapter or have moved to these places recently to send in their contact details on the following emails for updation of the database:

Raza Chinoy (President - IBA Alumni Islamabad Chapter) - rchinoy@yahoo.com
Zubair Shah (Director Alumni Relations - IBA Alumni Islamabad Chapter) - zubairahmad.shah@gmail.com

Lastly we would like to recognize the efforts of Humayun Naseeruddin (VP - IBA Alumni Islamabad Chapter) and Abdullah Qazi (Treasurer - IBA Alumni Islamabad Chapter) in taking the lead in organizing this event successfully. The Islamabad Chapter has grown from a mere 25 members in 2012 to over 160 members currently and hoping to grow this family even further. Adios till the next event.
