Namaste to our AIS/AES Alumni Association and Family!

We hope 2018 brings good health and happiness the new year through.

Twenty-seventeen was another non-(all-school)-reunion year for our alumni association. Although there were no specific groups of
AIS/AES alumni reunions reported, there were many classmate reunions around the world…and several individual visits to India. There were also many new connections in 2017, particularly on Facebook and some by email. Keep it up!!
We enjoy sharing your stories and photos on our alumni association Facebook page and website. These gatherings remind us how connected we are as a family. India continues to live in all of us in our personal lives and when we unite with classmates and friends.

We are excited to learn the new AES Director, Jim Laney, Jr., visits Washington, DC, from time to time. His first visit since becoming Director will be the end of January 2018, and our Board members are thrilled to have the chance to meet
him. This trip, Mr. Laney will include stops in Boston and New York City before returning to Delhi to celebrate AES' 65th Anniversary. He is also anxious to meet alumni during his travels and would like to host alumni gatherings while on the road when there is an opportunity to host one. As always, we are happy to help advertise alumni gatherings and reunions so please keep checking our alumni website, Facebook page, and email to see if there is a reunion or reception being planned - by anyone in our AIS/AES Community - in or near your location.

The American Embassy School's 65th Anniversary is this year, and celebrations will be the week of 12-16 February 2018. All AIS/AES alumni are invited and welcomed! If you are able to attend, please fill out their online registration form:

The AIS/AES Alumni Association exists for you. Our Board members are all volunteers (not paid for our time and we cover our own expenses for meetings). There is no outside funding for this organization. That said, we do ask for a small donation in the form of association dues -- $25.00/per calendar year -- although we are appreciative of whatever amount you can contribute. Your association dues help cover expenses such as web hosting, fees to maintain our tax status as a non-profit organization, down payments for our all-school reunions held once every five years and continual alumni association-hosted activities.

For your convenience, there are two ways you can pay your AIS/AES Alumni Association dues:

Please make your check payable to AIS/AES Alumni Association, Inc. with the memo line notation: 2018 Dues and mail it to our treasurer...

PAYPAL is an online payment service that allows individuals and businesses to transfer funds electronically. You can make dues payments by credit or debit
cards by simply clicking on the "Pay Dues" button below.

For a great number of us who attended the American International School, now the American Embassy School, the alumni association has been a means to reconnect with "lost" friends and to build friendships with people with similar backgrounds. This continues to be a major part of our mission. We very much enjoy hearing your news, your sharing precious memories, seeing your photos
and getting together with you when possible. Your support, not only financially
but in sharing your time with us, is very much appreciated.

We look forward to another great year with you. Welcome 2018!!
