Alumni Chapters - KSA Alumni Chapter
The idea behind forming the KSA Chapter was floated in 2010 but the launch drive was kick started in August 2012 which culminated in connecting KSA Alumni to IBA platform. A membership drive was launched and basic data from alumni was solicited. Close to 100 alumni residing mainly in three cities (Riyadh, Jeddah and Al-Khobar) were identi-fied.
Benefiting from a sizeable number of graduates working in myriad top organizations, the role of this platform is to provide a meeting point for graduates to connect and network in a foreign land and help out IBA in achieving its strategic vision. On November 22, 2012, KSA Chapter was launched in Riyadh which was attended by about 100 alums and their family members. During the launch an Executive Committee (EC) was set up comprising of 8 members. As the Chapter is still evolving, only 2 office bearers (President and General Secretary) have been appointed for now from the EC for a one year period.
The EC reserves the right to appoint more office bearers as the need arises. The EC will convene to decide on future events and also to build up the database of IBA graduates in the Kingdom as many graduates remain to be tapped.
