There were a few new developments when alumni and others gathered at the joint annual general meetings of UCT Convocation and the UCT Alumni Association, hosted at UCT during the December 2009 graduation week.
Notably, the Alumni Association approved the renaming of its executive committee, aka the Alumni Management Committee, to the Alumni Advisory Board, a name more in keeping with its role. "We don't manage anything; we advise," observed chairperson Dr Stuart Saunders. In addition, alumni Christopher Campbell, Lionel Harper, Mandy Sauls, Prof Jennifer Thomson and Paki Zandile – plus existing members Sylvia Hammond and Mutle Mogase – were elected to the advisory board.
