Distinguished Alumni Speak on Politics at Sharing Forum

Alumni Affairs Office organised the Alumni Sharing Forum “Get Started in Political Arena” on 21 October 2013 in which two distinguished alumni – Legislative Council Member and Vice-Chairperson of the Labour Party Hon Cyd Ho Sau-lan and Central and Western District Council Member Mr. Kam Nai-wai, MH shared with participants their invaluable experience in politics.

Two speakers expressed to the audience that a strong conviction is required to fight for the values one believes as incidents and policies will not change in one day. Alumna Ho shared that change is the rule in politics and therefore she never gets tired. She remarked that one needs to know when to hold on or let go and to remain positive. Alumnus Kam elaborated further that participants can get started in political arena through various channels including getting involved in election, becoming members of some established associations, professional bodies or chamber of commerce, participating in voluntary work of political parties or working in the Government.

The panel discussion was chaired by Dr. Kenneth Chan Ka-lok, Associate Professor of Department of Government and International Studies, whereby participants grasped the opportunity to raise questions. Please click here to view the highlights of the Forum.
