    Dr. Fredun Hojabri, the former professor and former vice president of SUT, was in Toronto on Friday September 20th to present his new book, “Upon Water and Fire”. Dr. Hojabri has been the founder and the first president of SUTA and currently serves as the Senior Adviser of the Board of Directors of SUTA. During his short visit, the Toronto Chapter hosted an event that was held at the Council Chamber at North York Civic Center starting at 7:00 pm. The event which was aimed at the Iranian community received a great turnout and attracted more than 60 members, affiliates, and friends.

    The session was started by Ms. Firoozeh Abassian, and then Dr. Hojabri was introduced by Ms. Mahshid Agir, and was thereafter invited to give his presentation which lasted for one hour, followed by a 45 minute period of Q&A by the audience. He began his speech by thanking his editor Dr. Goel Cohen and his wife, Hedy, for her support and encouragement throughout. He then talked in more detail about excerpts from his book. The speech mainly revolved around Dr. Hojabri’s life in Abadan during the nationalization of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, the student life in Munich, and the start of an academic career in Iran.

    “Upon Water and Fire” is an autobiography that spans a personal and professional life, taking a deep and personal look at Dr. Hojabri’s life throughout historic, academic and social events. Although the book is first and foremost a memoire focusing mostly on personal experiences and observations, it also provides a historic analysis of some of the events leading up to the nationalization of Iran’s oil industry, along with a brief history of the Sharif University of Technology and the transformation of the student movement in the span of 3 decades.

    At the end of the presentation, Dr. Hojabri was presented with a gift as a token of appreciation, and many SUTA members - who had indicated a strong interest in spending more time with Dr. Hojabri - had the opportunity to attend a group dinner at one of the restaurants on Yonge Street.

    The call for hosting the 2014 reunion has been submitted several weeks ago and the deadline for accepting the nominations is close (September 28, 2013).

    So far the BoD has received only one firm nomination, which is from Milano, Italy. Several other cities around the globe have been nominated verbally, without a formal nomination.

    Please contact us if you are interested to learn more about the process, requirement, or just want to formally nominate a city.

      It was last year in July that the SUTA family got together in Ottawa, and celebrated all its achievements. We were also honored to have the 2012 Reunion held jointly with Shiraz University Association (SUA). In this short report I would like first to thank all people who were involved in our 2012 Reunion in Ottawa, as guests, speakers, organizers or volunteers, weather they were SUTA, or SUA affiliate, or none. It was a great pleasure to be with you!

      Now, one year has passed and the Reunion Committee has started the planning for the 2014 reunion; you will soon receive a survey on what you like to see in the 2014, and most importantly members would be asked where they want it to be held. A call for nomination to all chapters would also follow, so that we can select the city where to hold the 2014 reunion. The biannual reunions have been a unique tradition in SUTA, and to many, the pinnacle of our activities.

      That being said, it is not the only SUTA activity: we have several active chapters all around the world. Some have weekly, some monthly, some bimonthly, and some quarterly events. We believe in the importance of the chapters, as they are close to where our members are. The Chapters Committee has worked hard in stimulating the dormant chapters, and I am pleased to report that within the past few months, a new chapter in Washington DC has been established, and we are about to establish a new one in Montreal.

      Our Awards Committee, Membership Committee, and Bylaws Review Committee are also active now and you will soon hear from them. Our Communications Committee has already published its first newsletter in a new format, and with excellent contents, and a call for articles for the 2nd newsletter has been made already.

      To make it short, SUTA is active, and wants you, its members, to feel that we are a community and that we can achieve great targets, if we work together.

      Thank you for being a member (or for becoming a member, if you are not already)!

      Bahram Zahir

      SUTA president
