From AAI’s President:
Welcome to 2015, and the start of what will surely be a breakthrough year for the AIESEC Alumni organization!
As you can see from this edition of our monthly newsletter, we’ve developed a new design and format, which we hope you will find to be easier to read and more appealing. Our goal with this redesign is to engage AIESEC alumni around the world, with important updates from our network.
You’ll also notice our new logo for AIESEC Alumni International, which we are launching with this edition, and inviting all alumni organizations to adopt in the coming months. This rebranding project was led by members of our AAI team and with the input and support of a broad group of leaders of National Alumni Associations (NAA) and Regional Alumni Associations (RAA) from around the globe.
As a part of our launch of the new AIESEC Alumni (AA) brand identity, we invite you to watch this short video, which will provide you with a full understanding of our rebranding project, our design goals and our global roll-out plan over the coming months.
Many years from now, 2015 will go down in history as the year when AIESEC Alumni achieved major breakthroughs and when the AAI Transformation Project came to fruition. In 2015, you can look forward to many exciting advances:
- The launch of AlumNet and rapid scaling of our global online alumni network;
- Deployment of AA signature programs in AlumNet, providing alumni with diverse opportunities to engage in lifelong connection;
- The integration of our organization into a cohesive federation of entities, all connected through integrated membership and programs;
- The establishment of many new National Alumni Associations (NAAs) around the globe, focused on building valuable programs and networking opportunities.
These are just some of the exciting outcomes we expect to achieve in 2015, and we invite you to join us in leading AIESEC Alumni to achieve its full potential. Together, we will make 2015 the breakthrough year for AA!
Finally, all of us were shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden tragic loss of our friend and alumni leader, Rolando P. Gosiengfiao this past week, as this newsletter went to press. The entire alumni world is mourning Rollie’s premature departure from among us. As a global community, we all extend our prayers and thoughts to his family and friends.
Very best regards,
Andrew G. Rowe, AAI President
