With the establishment of the Ngee Ann-Adelaide Education Centre (NAAEC) and the consequent growth in alumni population, our patron – the late past President of Singapore, the Honourable Mr Ong Teng Cheong – encouraged the Network to set up a distinct body to meet the diverse interests of the alumni. A Protem Committee led by Network President, Mr Michael Khor, PBM, JP was set-up and the AUAAS was officially launched on the 6th April 2002 at the NAAEC
