A small group of Ngee Ann graduates were invited by Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) in late 1993 to assist in setting up a new association of Ngee Ann graduates. The NAA Constitution was drafted in 1994 and the association received the official approval by the Registry of Societies on 20 March 1995 as a registered non-profit society in Singapore.
The Ngee Ann Alumni (NAA) association\’s objectives under its Constitution are:
- To promote the interests and development of the Ngee Ann Polytechnic
- To promote the interests of the members of the Alumni.
- To provide opportunities for the members of the Alumni to meet one another, and provide facilities for academic, social, cultural, sports and recreational activities among members.
- To facilitate the exchange of information and ideas related to all branches of business, industrial and information technologies through meetings, exhibitions, visits or such other activities as the Alumni may deem incidental or conducive to the promotion or attainment of the objects herein.
- To communicate to Members information on all matters affecting Members and to print, publish, issue and circulate such publication or journals in furtherance of any of the objects of the Alumni to the extent permitted by law and subject to approval from relevant authorities.
