On Sunday 27 August 2017, Mr Adeel Riaz, the Senior Manager of Advancement Office, visited the great city of Gilgit to initiate the Gilgit-Baltistan Alumni Chapter. The get together was hosted by the Advancement Office in collaboration with a group of very dynamic current students, called the GB Formanites. The get-together included elections for the positions of President and General Secretary of the Alumni Chapter. With a difference of just one vote, Mr Waleed Munir Khan was chosen as the President of the GB Chapter, while Ms Ghazala Khan was selected as the General Secretary, through an unopposed nomination. Mr Haider Ali, the runner up presidential candidate, was nominated for the Position of Honorary Vice President. The President, Vice President, the General Secretary along with a dedicated Advancement volunteer, Mr Hamid Hussain, will work in close coordination to:
