The MAAC – MABC Networking Event 2011

The Malaysian Australian Alumni Council (MAAC) and the Malaysian Australian Business Council (MABC) recently held a joint networking event to foster closer relationships amongst their councils’ members and friends.

On July 28, 2011, The MAAC and the MABC held a joint networking event with the objective to continuously foster closer relationships amongst their members and friends. The event was held at the Mezzo Bar, Renaissance Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

The MABC is a platform for discussion and exchange of views aimed at developing commercial activities and promoting bilateral fratenity between Malaysia and Australia while the MAAC is a national organisation of Malaysian Alumni Associations of Australian Universities and of Australian Institutions of Higher Learning aimed to promote and foster coordination, integration and networking amongst Malaysian graduates from Australia. The MAAC is also the organiser of the Malaysia Australia Colombo Plan Commemoration (MACC) Scholarships. Although different, both organisations have a common objective, that is to continuously promote and foster closer relations between Australia and Malaysia.

The turnout was great and everyone enjoyed the free flow of beer, wine, canapes and soft drinks in a relax setting for 2 hours. It was definitely a great opportunity for networking and expanding one’s horizon.
