The new board will serve as the governing body for CASE Asia-Pacific and will provide strategic direction. The inaugural board meeting was held at the CASE Asia-Pacific Advancement Conference in Singapore in April. The Conference is the annual signature event of the organisation and was attended by over 300 professionals from educational institutions.


In recognition of his efforts in promoting and supporting education and institutional advancement in the Region, former HKU Vice-Chancellor Professor Lap-Chee Tsui was honoured with the prestigious CASE Asia-Pacific Leadership Award at the Conference. Ms Sue Cunningham, President of CASE, remarked: “Professor Lap-Chee Tsui’s remarkable leadership and exceptional commitment led to a sea-change in philanthropic giving at HKU, inspiring alumni and friends to give in ways never seen before at the University.”
