  • become more acquainted with other HKIRA members through HKIRA events, and
  • broaden their horizons and mindsets in the field of IR via advocacy by the HKIRA Buddies Leaders. 

HKIRA members who currently work at listed companies (or in the past 12 months) are eligible to join the 12-month Program as a Buddy and for free. Availability is limited and on a first-come-first-served basis.
