The winter holiday season inspires

The winter holiday season inspires love, sharing and compassion.

The winter holiday season inspires love, sharing and compassion. It is a time where we come together with our families and loved ones to celebrate the holidays, re ect on our accomplishments of the past year and share ideas of how the following year can be even better. It is a time when people come together to encourage hope and give to others less fortunate.

It may sound like a cliché but being kind and joining forces to do good for our community gives us the strength to appreciate what we have and work together as a team.

The AISB Alumni Association started the season early. On November 23rd we held our rst fund raising event. We joined forces with the school and friends to help a little boy called Sebi, who su ers from cerebral palsy due to an unfortunate chain of medical errors and indifference at his birth, which condemned him and his parents to a life full of emotional and nancial struggles.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that a large number of alumni came forward and o ered to get involved in our project,  which turned out to be a very successful event. I am thankful to all of you who have dedicated your time and energy to make this event possible and to those of you who attended and helped make a di erence in Sebi’s life.

On this note, I am now certain that the AISB Alumni Association, a powerful group of well-rounded and enthusiastic people, can successfully achieve its goals to maintain and renew relationships, to help improve and maintain a healthy social atmosphere at the school and within the Romanian community.

It’s been a full rst year, so I would like to congratulate the AISB Alumni O cers for their commitment and e orts! Apart from the social and fund raising events we organized, we have also been working on many administrative matters, which will help the association to grow in an international environment.

Since our plans are to grow the association’s network, it is very important to establish its identity. As a result we have been working on creating a logo that links us to the school yet represents a group of professionals who inspire in nite possibilities.

Having established our identity, one of the most important missions of our association is to actively involve its members. Active participation represents the members’ interest in the association’s a airs. Therefore we are currently working on implementing the Alumni section on the school’s website where all alumni will be able to create a social and professional pro le available only to the AISB Alumni.

This is a very important tool for the association, as it will enable us to learn about our members' interests and whereabouts, and keep us connected socially and professionally.

The calendar of events for the rest half of 2014 includes organizing the Alumni Reunion in London, which will take place on March 8th. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible, especially since last year’s reunion was a great success.

Another important event will be the launch of our association’s identity and the nomination of the founding and honorary members, which will happen late spring – dates to be announced soon. We will be closing the 2014 school year with the Senior Breakfast, where we welcome the new graduates into our association. 

In conclusion, we have a busy year ahead of us and I am happy to say this because it means
that, soon, all our hard work and meetings for all the administrative activities will be implemented.

Happy holidays!
