Promotion of the Federation and its website
Our Federation’s network has grown to 43 Hong Kong Business Associations (BAs) in 32 countries and regions with over 13,000 individual associates. As one of the measures to strengthen the connection between the Federation and individual BAs, I highly encourage all BAs to add the Federation’s logo and website hyperlink (https://www.hkfederation.org.hk/) on their websites. Attached please find the graphic file of the Federation logo for your use.
Promotion of Upcoming Events
In order to enhance inter-regional connection, the dates and hosting cities of the various Regional Forums have been uploaded to the Federation’s website at - https://www.hkfederation.org.hk/about/member/event. Apart from the usual participants of the respective Regional Forums, members from other regions would be welcomed to join the Forums (on a self-financed basis) to exchange and contribute ideas.
We also encourage BAs to share their respective events on this page with other associations as well.
Young Members’ Participation
Encouraging more young members to join the Federation and participating at Hong Kong Forum are among our core missions. I am pleased to announce two new initiatives –
1. A new networking session at Hong Kong Forum dedicated for young members
2. An inaugural internship programme (around June – August 2019)
Details of both programmes will be circulated in separate emails later on. Please feel free to share with us if you have any comments/ suggestions on the programmes. And your assistance to help communicating with all your young members is highly appreciated in due course.
For any enquiries, please feel free to contact any of the Office Holders or the Secretariat at email@example.com. Thank you once again. I look forward to meeting all of you in our Federation events soon.
