Dear AIESEC Alumni Member!
Next year in 2008 is a Special Year for AIESEC. And, a Special Year for AIESEC Alumni, too.
Now, we have over 100 member countries and reagions with more than 300,000 alumni members and 30,000 AIESEC student members around the world.
As all of you are aware that AIESEC was born in 1948 in Stockholm, so we are planning to celebrate the 60th AIESEC Anniversary under the theme of "60 Years of Activating Youth Leadership" around the world.
The following is some of official AIESEC 60th Anniversary events which are already scheduled in each region:
January 17, 2008 in London, UK

May 9-11, 2008 in Budapest, Hungary
June 27-29, 2008 in Brussels, Belgium
August 22-24, 2008 in Brazil
I'm sending this email to alert all of you to block your schedule druing March 21-23, 2008 to visit Tokyo and meet up with many of your old AIESEC friends in Asia Pacific region, since we will have the 60th Anniversary of AIESEC (hosted by AIESEC in Japan) and the 2nd AIESEC Asia Pacific Alumni Congress (hosted by OBAIESEC). (There will be more than 200 AIESEC student members from Asia Pacific region gathered in Tokyo for APXLDS during March 17-23, 2008.)
The detailed program will follow sometime in December, but a rough plan is as follows:

March 23, 2008: Optional Study Tour in/around Tokyo
(We are considering to have an optional tour to Kyoto and Nara from March 24 - 25, if
we have enough requests from those participating alumni.)
Note: 1) As for the participation fee, it will be $100-120 for the programs.
(The fees for those spouses who are attending the programs will be $70-80.)
2) The hotel accommodation will be arranged at a reasonable rate in 3 types:
3 pricing ranges, about $200, $100, and $60 per night, respectively.

AIESEC friends and ask them to participate the events. So, please ask me so by e-mail at any time.
Also, e-mail to me if you have already decided to participate the 60th Anniversary event and the 2nd
AIESEC Asia Pacific Alumni Congress so that I can start to arrange in advance.
