More than 125 AIESECers from 34 countries gathered in Porto, Portugal for the AIESEC Alumni International Congress on April 9-12, which was graciously hosted by AIESEC FEP in Porto and with critical support of Portuguese alumni. This event was an outstanding alumni showcase, full of education, networking, professional exchange, cultural events and plenty of AIESEC spirit. Participants were updated on the AAI Transformation Project, and witnessed the progress that has been made to achieve our vision of an active global network. For those attendees who experienced their first international alumni event in Porto, the words “leadership under AIESEC values delivered for life” took on a special meaning.
Conference participants were treated to wonderful venues and evening parties, including a Portuguese Night with fado singing and dance, and an elegant gala evening at a spectacular wine cave overlooking the city of Porto.Many attendees continued on a study tour together throughout the north of Portugal, where they experienced the beauty of its regional towns, outstanding scenery, tasty food and wine, and plenty of friendship.
AAI wants to extend a special thanks to the Congress Committee led by Fabio Castro, who worked hard to create such an outstanding event. All of the attendees enjoyed the special Portuguese hospitality, and we look forward to bringing AIESEC Alumni Portugal into our alumni network. Muito obrigados!
