Winner: Curtin Graduate School of Business Alumni Chapter Committee
The CGSB Alumni Chapter Committee is an active and enthusiastic group committed to giving back to the Graduate School of Business, its sponsors, alumni and students.
In 2016, the committee played an important role at the school's information evenings, inspiring prospective students with their anecdotes on how their Curtin degree enhanced their career and in some cases, changed their lives. They have also increased engagement with fellow alumni, which has helped secure the school's accreditation with several industry bodies.
The committee has an ongoing commitment to helping children in need, supporting Parkerville Children and Youth Care for the past three years. In 2015 the committee's annual Christmas comedy debate raised $1,000 and attendees donated more than 30 Christmas gifts to the charity.
The committee includes President Steven Nicols, Vice-President Mathew Ong, Treasurer Ian Williams and Committee Members Kaushal Jhaveri, Eduardo Valenzuela, David Kam, Russell Friedman, Erivanan Rao and Caterina Crucitti.
