Bahamas Alumni Group 2011 July Meeting
The Meeting commenced at 6pm with a brief description by Peter Maynard of the history of the Alumni Group in the Bahamas. Since only around a dozen Cambridge Univeristy alumni have been identified there was a discussion about possibly opening the Group to Oxford and even US/Canadian Ivy League participants. Once this matter is agreed a suitable name for the Group will be decided.
It was of concern that so few young Bahamians are applying for a place at Cambridge. We will be discussing possible incentives for the future.
Each person present then offered to the Group a summary (often very amusing) of his life experience, with an emphasis on the impact of his time at Cambridge.
Finally, Peter Young, career diplomat and former British High Commissioner in the Bahamas, gave an interesting talk on the current Euro Zone crisis.
A further meeting will be organised before the end of the year - date and location to be agreed. The meeting adjourned at 8pm.
