The Wageningen Alumni Network New Zealand (in formation) is established to engage alumni in New Zealand with each other and with Wageningen University & Research.
In 2018, the first steps towards the Alumni Chapter New Zealand were made. Prof. Louise O. Fresco, president of Wageningen Unviersity & Research, was present at the this first alumni meeting, hosted by Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands Mira Woldberg. During this alumni meeting, the start of the WUR Alumni Chapter in New Zealand took place by signing of the official letter of intent. The purpose of the Alumni Chapter is to engage local Wageningen alumni in New Zealand with each other and with WUR in organized efforts.
The board members for the Alumni Chapter New Zealand are:
- Andrea 't Mannetje
- Jeroen Douwes
- Koen Overkamp
