I will also launch our revitalized communication platforms, the LIRO Alumni and Supporters program, and the VSB Vantage Point Journal. We will strengthen our bonds and collaboration with our alumni associations (the CBAAA and the MBA Society) with a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation. 

Be prepared to be entertained and to have fun during the program. Listen to your batch mates as they compete in the “Mr. & Ms. Biriteoke” contest. Watch our brave alumni test their brains and wit in the “Q & A” competition. The audience will be the judge of the winners of these two contests. We have also invited a popular singer and entertainer to perform during the program. Please stay on for the duration of the program because we will be giving prizes who will be selected in our e-Raffle only to those who are in the venue to accept these prizes
