Launching the AISB WORLD ALUMNI Magazine
|1 Dec 2011|
|WM Winter 2011 edition|
As the Director of the American International School of Bucharest I am delighted to introduce to you the World. Please take “a minute” to read our news.
AISB World is the inaugural magazine for Alumni of the American International School of Bucharest.
It is a momentous event in that thousands of people have passed through the doors of AISB and joined the ranks of alumni, an elite group of people. Our alumni represent over 60 countries and have one big thing in common. You learned, and lived together in Bucharest at the American International School and experienced life through a “different lens” than most of the citizens from your home country.
This publication is not only for our alumni it is also for current students and their families. It’s a way for alumni to remain connected to their friends and the school which was once a part of their everyday life. For current students and families it provides a glimpse into their future world.
These networks between old and new are essential in today’s world. They lead to new and innovative ideas and can form the basis of personal and economic opportunities. The World provides a venue to foster this network and keep people update to date about the activities and achievements of our alumni while providing our young AISB students with hopes and dreams for their own future.
Any former student, faculty, staff member, or Board of Director who has spent at least one semester affiliated with the school and left in good standing is considered a member of our alumni community. Many of our alumni - whether they were here for a short time or much longer - consider their AISB education and experiences some of “the best years” of their lives.
We have begun the process of formalizing our Alumni Association and one of the hardest jobs we have is to keep track of our alumni as they move all over the world. We maintain an alumni database and your help in keeping it up to date is important and appreciated. So please keep in touch with your whereabouts and significant life events such as marriages, births, career accomplishments, etc. so that we can share this information with your friends and the AISB community.
AISB alumni are in every corner of the world. This publication will help connect you and make the world a smaller place. World is for you and we value your feedback and ideas for stories and alumni profiles that you would like to see featured in the magazine.
Welcome to the World!
