AISB was founded in 1962 with only 4 students, reaching over 750 students almost 50 years later. There are 50 nationalities currently repre- sented in the school and we are constantly add- ing new constituents to our community.
Some of you have been a part of this progress. You came and you left your mark on AISB’s history. You moved on to study and build a career, hopefully with a special place for AISB in your hearts. We have seen some of you at the reunions. Others wanted to attend, but couldn’t due to exams, personal business or simply longdistances. It’s very difficult to serve such a bigand diverse community, but we try.
AISB Alumni Association organizes two annual reunions. A local event in Bucharest and another at a location usually chosen by the majority of the alumni. The reunions in 2011 were hosted at The Match Bar in London in January and at El Bistro in Bucharest, in June.
The latter is actually the success story of one of our alumni – Elena Sandulescu, who followed her dream to open a restaurant.
El Bistro is a very cosy place situated on Calea Victoriei, the oldest boulevard in Bucharest, which is full of history. As one strolls down theboulevard you can stop and enjoy some coffeeor something delicious to eat. If you are lucky, you can also meet Elena there and have a nice conversation about AISB in 2005 when she graduated.

The restaurant was booked for the Alumni Reunion and we enjoyed a nice summer eve- ning in great company with beautiful stories and memories. There were only about 25 alumni who happened to be in Bucharest at that time but we had a memorable evening.
The international location chosen for February 2012 reunion is New York and we really hope more alumni will be able to attend this event. Check out the facebook group (AISB Alums) for details.
We are still looking for a location for the local reunion of 2012. Who knows, maybe another restaurant owned by an AISB Alumnus. You will hear from us once we decide upon where to meet. We have to think of something special since it’s the 50th Anniversary of AISB!
It is so nice to hear about success stories, knowing that AISB contributed to some extent.
We hope that AISB will always have a place in your hearts and we will always keep our doors open for you to stop by anytime, to watch a play or attend one of our annual events. It will be an honour for us and also for the current AISB students.
I hope to see you at the next reunion in New York City!
