BCAA President Update | December 2023

In 2023 the BCAA continued to help our Burgmann alumni reconnect with their mates, with successful events in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra, and an international meetup in London. Additional catch ups are planned for 2024, and we are happy to help if you’d like to organise an event in your region.

It’s also been fantastic to see the strong support of our Burgmann alumni for the college’s fundraising efforts. This year our focus was raising funds for the College Bursary, and it was great to see that we all recognise the value of a diverse college community to sustain our cherished traditions.

A personal highlight this year was presenting the awards at the Back-to-Burg Weekend.

Congratulations to Martijn Wilder, Fiona Nixon, Nerrida Higgins and Heather Webb. It was a pleasure to reconnect with so many friends, and to honour our outstanding alumni, staff, and volunteers for their personal and professional achievements beyond their treasured time at Burgmann.

Finally, on behalf of the BCAA Committee, we extend our heartfelt best wishes to outgoing Principal Sally Renouf and her family as they pursue new adventures. Sally has had a profound positive influence on Burgmann. She maintained the great Burgmann spirit while making significant improvements to the college infrastructure, establishing the Advancement Office and guiding us through the COVID and all the necessary controversies and crisis that pop up in college life. We thank her for her thoughtful, collaborative and classy leadership.
