Wrap-up of the Grossmünster Event

On Tuesday, September 11, Sascha Weisshaupt (EMScom 13) opened the doors of the iconic Grossmünster for the EMScom Alumni Association. After a long career in branding at Swisscom, Sascha went on to share his knowledge and expertise with the Grossmünster community as he led its rebranding effort. At the event, Sascha highlighted the history of the Grossmünster, talked about his personal relation with this institution and how he navigated implementing a brand new identity for Zurich's renown landmark. After the presentation, we had the privilege of visiting the church and the bell tower, and hearing more anecdotes about what this building means for the city of Zurich and its people, while enjoying a beautiful evening view over the city.  

Thank you Sascha for this great opportunity!

Extraordinary General Meeting - October 24, 2018

The EMScom Alumni Association Extraordinary General Meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 24 at the Marriott Hotel in Zurich (Neumühlequai 42), starting at 18:30 hrs.

We will use this meeting to share and discuss the challenges that the Association is currently facing, and look to identify a viable solution going forward. As announced in the invitation sent in late August, we have experienced a continual decrease in the community’s engagement for the past few years as well as a lack of interest in the Association’s activities. We have struggled with low attendance. 

At this point, the most appropriate way to proceed is to discuss the Association’s future with the alumni community. We have already heard from some of you – thank you again for taking the time to reach out and share your thoughts. We need to identify a strong group of alumni ambassadors, who are actively engaged and involved, passionate to make a difference, and want to shape the community in the future. 

We look forward to seeing you there. Please register by emailing emscomalumni@usi.ch
