Dear Saxion Alumni and friends,
On the occasion of their visit to China from 5 – 7 March 2018, the outgoing Director of the International Office of Saxion University of Applied Sciences, Mr. Chris van den Borne, and his successor, Mr. Janco Bonnink, have the great pleasure to invite you to join the next Saxion Alumni Dinner in Beijing on Monday, March 5. Please find the attached invitation with more information.
After a long and successful career at Saxion, Chris van den Borne will start enjoying his retirement soon. During his forthcoming visit, he will say goodbye to Saxion’s many partners and friends in China, including Saxion’s alumni, and introduce his successor to them. As many of you may have met Chris during your studies at Saxion, we hope that you will all join the alumni dinner to give Chris a great farewell party and to welcome Janco.
During the event, we hope to officially launch the Saxion China Alumni Chapter. The Chapter is meant to be an online and offline platform where Saxion alumni and students will be able to meet, foster ties with each other and with Saxion, share their knowledge and experiences, and be informed about developments at their alma mater. The Chapter shall also occasionally organize events and provide a channel for contacts with alumni of other Dutch schools and universities. Within the Chapter, we hope to set up different alumni circles, for instance in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou/Shenzhen, to organize and serve to local alumni community.
We are now looking for Saxion alumni in China who would like to be involved and become the founding Members of the Board of the Chapter. More information will follow shortly, so please keep an eye on this account. Are you enthusiastic, do you want to help strengthen the Saxion community and spread the Saxion name in China, please let us know!

We don't have recent email addresses of all our alumni in China. If you know someone who is a Saxion
graduate and did not receive this email, please feel free to pass it on and
invited them to join the Wechat Group. As the member of our Saxion Alumni
Wechat group exceeded 100, so please let alumni send mail to me. I will put
