Spring breeze in Shanghai! (Avancons nr 2 2014)

Spring has been as usual loaded with activities. We have returning alumni from West
China and Germany on visit as well as a SAS pilot joining alumni dinner between
her flights. It is great to have many alumni visiting Shanghai to share their stories from
other parts of the world. The spring breeze brought one of our board member, Ding
Hao, to Chengdu continuing his career at SKF and much closer to his wife and we
are very happy for him, however we need to find a replacement and anyone interested
joining our team are more than welcome to contact me. Ding Hao might start up
a network in Chengdu as well if enough alumni from Volvo Cars in Chengdu and
other alumni in town are interested.

The last upcoming event is on 19th of June and we will have a mid-summer theme
with snaps provided by CING and great time to sing and drink together.

Friendly dinner meeting in China
