    The Computing Alumni Association (CAA) is an alliance of both postgraduate and undergraduate students from the Computing Department (COMP) of Hong KongPolytechnicUniversity; in sharing responsibility for serving its subscribed members and representing their interests in university affairs. Therefore, the golden words of “Connecting All Alumni” are the main theme of our goals.

    It was the great time to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Hong KongPolytechnicUniversity. As the one of the Bearer and Board of Director in Hong Kong Polytechnic University Alumni Associations (HKPUAA), I and CAA gave the active participation in the various celebration events in 2012.

    During the 2013 COMP Graduation Dinner, we have recruited 59 graduates as CAA members. Also, there are about 6 graduates joined as the Life member with the active lobbying of CAA exco in the event. Therefore, this is the highest recruitment rate, totally 65 graduates recruited, as compared in the past years. Thank you for the support of Computing Department for the CAA participation.

    In 2014, there will be the grant 40th Anniversary of Computing Department. We have several joint meeting to explore the support of the coming grant events and activities in 2014. The first event is the COMP’s logo design which encourages the COMP students, CAA alumni and Comp staffs to give their idea and design art work for the judge panel composed of SCS, CAA and COMP staffs to select the final winners according the rules and guidelines. This competition will be the launcher of the COMP 40th Anniversary.  Also, the Outstanding CAA Alumni Awards will be the 2nd phase activity in mid of 2014 to promote the COMP and gets connecting with and reunion of the COMP’s graduate and alumni accordingly. The final grant event will be the COMP 40th Anniversary Dinner at the end of 2014.

    Moreover, CAA takes a frontier to participate in and sponsor to the SCS activities, such as SCS dinner and the SCS Pre-O’camp that the exposure of CAA to the students who are the potential members of CAA. Also, the participation will build up a relationship and partnership for collaboration effect and mutual understanding between COMP students and CAA as well.

    Finally, I take this opportunity to thank the COMP and its staffs, CAA members, SCS exco for their valuable support and guidance. I also express my sincere gratitude to our CAA exco members, whose loyalty, patronage and faith have enabled CAA to continuously seek higher performance levels. I also appreciate the active support of the FHKPUAA and AADO for the smooth operation of CAA. In the end, I would like to wish you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
