About Holland



On 20 January, Nuffic Neso South Africa invited the newly elected board of the Holland Alumni Association South Africa (HAASA) for a kick-off meeting at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Pretoria.

After an information session in the morning, during which the board was updated about the worldwide Holland Alumni network and EP-Nuffic’s strategy on international alumni, the board sat down for an interactive discussion and brainstorm session to start planning the year ahead.

The aim of this kick-off meeting was to discuss the strategy for the coming year. With a distribution of board members across the country, including the Johannesburg/ Pretoria region, Cape Town as well as Bloemfontein, HAASA is looking to organise more regional alumni activities in 2017.
