Daffodil Alumni North American Reunion 2019 was held in New York, USA on June 15, 2019 on a river cruise towards the Statue of Liberty with Daffodil Alumni. The alumni members got the opportunity to reminisce, exchanging and sharing views and joining in the fun cultural events. The river cruise turned into a great gathering of Daffodillians coming from different parts of North America.
The main objective of this reunion was to form a global network of Daffodil Alumni uniting country wide non-resident Daffodil Alumni Network and utilising this collective network for the development of Bangladesh using their experience and expertise for positioning Bangladesh.
UN Permanent Representative of Bangladesh and Ambassador Masud Bin Momen graced the occasion as the chief guest while Dr. Md. Sabur Khan, Chairman, Daffodil Family was present as the special guest in the programme. Mohammad Nuruzzaman, Chief Executive Officer and Mohamed Emran Hossain, Chief Operating Officer and other high officials of Daffodil Family attended the programme. Ziaul Haque Sumon, President, DIU Alumni Association conducted the programme. More than 200 Daffodil Alumni and their family members participated in the reunion.
Masud Bin Momen said that it’s a praiseworthy matter to arrange such kind of reunion programme in North America by the Daffodil family. Developed countries use their alumni to enhance their organisational development through which the entire country benefits. He thanked Daffodil for arranging this programme.
Dr. Md. Sabur Khan said that “emotion” is one of their major strengths. The organisation wants to make a platform with Daffodil alumni through which members spread all over the world can be brought under one umbrella, to work for the country’s development.
Daffodil Group CEO Mohammad Nuruzzaman announced that a website for Daffodil Alumni members in London has already been created. The work to build similar website for North America is underway.
