A community of leaders

Hinrich Foundation Alumni Association

We established the Hinrich Foundation Alumni Association (HFAA) to stimulate regular exchanges between young trade leaders committed to advancing sustainable global trade. Led by the Alumni Leadership Committee, the HFAA is a community of people who are passionate about trade, and benefit from and contribute to the Foundation’s programs.
