TMI Alumni Meet on 16th November 2019
Saturday, the 16th of November 2019, was an extra special affair at the sprawling campus of Tolani Maritime Institute (TMI) as it became host to the first official on campus Alumni Meet organized by the TMI Global Alumni Organization’s (TMI GAO). About 72 distinguished alumni returned to campus from all over the globe to re-live some fond memories. The meet saw participation ranging from the pioneer batch of the institute that graduated in 2002 all the way up to the graduating class of 2018.
The day started with a meeting between the campus Alumni Committee and members of TMI GAO to chart out a forward path towards a more formalized Alumni-Campus connect.
The meeting was followed by an Alumni-Cadets interaction in the auditorium where cadets were free to ask any question. The fully packed auditorium saw active participation and many spirited discussions were held, ranging from experiences in the workplace to tips on the different ways to have fun on campus.
Late afternoon saw a thrilling football match of Alumni versus the TMI cadets and it was amazing to witness the high spirits and sportsmanship at display.
The day ended with an evening of livery and dancing at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott. The Emcees for the night Brijesh Mongia (2006) and Vishrut Soni (2010) kept the crowd engaged with their funny banter and witty comments. The evening saw performances by international artists, professional dancing troupes, DJ and even a live band that had everyone tapping to its beats.
TMI Global Alumni Organisation Ltd. has been registered in Singapore in September 2016 with the mission to develop a vibrant TMI Community all across the Globe, develop connections with professional Alumni and to provide a platform to bring all TMI Alumni together to stay in touch.
Shailendra Agarwala, one of the founders of the Association says:
"The main Idea of having a ‘TMI- Global Alumni Association’ and its FB page is to centralize and harmonize the efforts of TMI Alumni all across the Globe. This is the first registered Non-profitable organisation, dedicated to TMI Alumni, which we endeavour to make Global in all aspects. We are and always will be connected at roots, so this is a establishment from, for and by everyone. It will help for:
1) Posting Verified Opportunities available across the Globe. Many times the opportunity (At shore and at sea) comes but there are no candidates or vice-versa. If we use the page diligently, then we can reach a wide group of TMI Family and not just our own batch mates, to post the verified openings and opportunities. This can be accessed on ships as well, as applicable.
2) For announcing if there is Anyone in need genuinely. Everyone can come to know faster and help can be provided in more synchronized manner.
3) For Organising events and Get togethers. People can reach each other in a more efficient manner and will not be bound by the limitations of batches.
4) And many other possibilities, of whatever good TMI Alumni Family can think of.
So to make this successful, please help to spread the word and let’s make more and more people join this Global Alumni Association. In this Alumni Family, there are no leaders, no heads, but only well wishers (and some well wishers have to do co-ordination of course)."
The Organisation met in Singapore for its Annual Dinner on 15th July 2017.
