The 27th Inauguration Ceremony
The 27th Inauguration Ceremony was successfully held on 27th April, 2017 (Friday). It marks the official commencement of our zealous commitment to serve our members and signifies the continuity of the Society. The theme of our ceremony is ¡§Effulgent ¡V Blaze New Realms¡¨, which symbolizes our determination to open a new and vivacious path for our members. The cabinet is unwilling to follow footsteps of others and dares to be a trailblazer to carve out a new way to success. Therefore, through the theme ¡§Blaze New Realms¡¨, we hope to express that the upcoming executive committee members will adopt this spirit and always desire for breakthrough.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude here to all advisors, guest speakers, honourable guests, honorary members, past Executive Committee members, society representatives from different universities and helpers. This ceremony would not have been such remarkable without the support from you all. As the 27th Executive Committee members, we promise to serve the members of ESS with all our enthusiasm and devotion in this session.
