The Regional Chapter Groups were established to:

  • Build a knowledge network between alumni, allowing them to virtually connect, get to know one another, and to begin having in-house discussions on topics of interest and relevance;
  • Encouraging and supporting alumni in their continuing education endeavours;
  • Facilitate networking opportunities.

​There are currently three Chapter Groups serving Asia and Africa (formed April 2006),Europe (formed November 2005), and North America (formed October 2005). Each Chapter Group elects a President and Secretary who hold office for a one year period.
