ALUMnite events bring together alumni, sometimes also AIESECers and trainees, in cities around the world. Ranging from casual get-togethers in restaurants and homes to social gatherings with speakers, we connect on so many levels. Many cities have monthly social events, some do company and school visits. Ski trips, picnics and cruises have all brought alumni together again. (additional info)
A-Groups are groups of 10 to 14 AIESEC alumni who become a trusted advisory board for each other. Advice – career advice, input on dealing with team challenges, mentoring, industry knowledge – these are needs that professionals require for their development as leaders. Members meet 6-8 times per year, building a tight group that discusses a range of topics. These deep friendships are usually diverse in order to generate different viewpoints and perspectives. The program started in 2010 and exists in several countries. We plan to expand the program and welcome your input. (additional info)
ISUM (International Startup Meetings)
As AIESECers, we all learned to take initiative. For some alumni, this led to founding their own businesses. International Startup Meetings bring together entrepreneurs, investors and professionals together for education, networking and funding. Aspiring to build global businesses, ISUM attendees create networks that cross cultues and geographies. The first five ISUM meetings have successfully created new partnerships and business opportunities, and there are many more in our future. Next ISUM is March 24-25th, 2014 at Momentum2014Mexico.

Alumni Internship Referral (AIR) Program
The AIR program is a joint strategic initiative of AI and AAI in support of the Global Internship Program (GIP). Alumni appreciate the value of AIESEC interns, and can potentially take thousands of AIESEC interns every year. In addition, alumni understand the needs and communication of their companies and industries, and can be a source of referrals for qualified leads. We have a unique way to truly support AIESEC and its mission on a global scale, by serving as brand advocates.
