After some careful consideration of the escalating costs (over $60 for a sandwich and a soda!!), the venue logistics and with other opportunities for us to get together on the horizon, AISA has decided not to hold the Annual AISA Luncheon at AAIE in February this year. We’ll take a year off and re-evaluate whether we can reconvene in 2020.
That said, I warmly invite you to mark into your diary the 50th Anniversary AISA Gala Dinner which will take place in Cape Town (South Africa) during the annual AISA Conference to be held from 21st - 23rd November 2019 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Our 50th anniversary theme: "Learning from the Past, Shaping the Future”. We’ll have more information on the AISA Website in March.
If you’re no longer living in Africa, and have a hankering to get back to the continent, why not consider joining us in stunning Cape Town? For those with an ongoing professional interest, come and learn with our world class experts, network with colleagues, explore the excellent learning taking place in AISA schools, and enjoy that renowned AISA vibe during the conference. And whilst in Cape Town, why not visit the V&A Waterfront, explore the wineries, see the whales at Hermanus, climb Table Mountain, drive to the Cape of Good Hope, and of course attend the AISA 50th Anniversary AISA Gala Dinner on Friday 22nd November 2019? Come on – you know you want to!
In the meantime, I look forward to seeing those of you attending AAIE in San Francisco – but not for lunch!
Dr Peter Bateman
