GENERAL CRITERIA FOR STANDING FOR THE COMMITTEE

Finally, a fundamental aspect of being an OCCB officer is that they will commit to running at least one event during the term of their office. You will have the full support of the committee, but the event planning, management and execution are up to you.
The OCCB holds three main events per year, including the Charity Christmas Ball, Summer Garden Party and Spring Festival Dinner. The first two are headed by at least one of the President or Vice President. However, we also hold many other events，at least one per month, which have included ski trips, boating and exclusive speaker evenings from visiting academics and captains of industry.
