This is a save the date for the Victorian quarterly gathering in the Leather Room. As always, we will start in the Leather Room and then head to the Bistro for dinner (for those interested, individual checks). The event will start at 5:30 and we will host a lively discussion.
Hello Queensland AFAA members
Our local QLD contacts (thanks Caroline, Angela, and Charles for organizing us!) are planning a July 4th get together for Fulbright Alumni and scholars and want to gauge likely numbers. We are thinking of holding the event at an American themed diner or perhaps doing an outdoor BBQ. It will be a fixed menu with set price to be paid ahead of time to help with organization. At this stage we just want to put out a save the date and ask for a RSVP purely to indicate interest. That will help us narrow in on the best venue.
The Australian Fulbright Alumni Association is pleased to announce a save the date for its biennial conference. The 2019 Conference theme is: Global partnerships to local action.
The Fulbright Program is a flagship example of cultural exchange aimed at increasing bi national research collaboration, cultural understanding, and the exchange of ideas. The first Fulbright Program grantees traveled overseas in 1948. Since its inception in Australia in 1949, the Fulbright Commission has awarded over 5,000 scholarships, creating a vibrant, dynamic, and interconnected network of Alumni. November 2018 – November 2019 marks a year of celebrating the Fulbright’s 70th anniversary. In this vein – our AFAA conference theme is Global Partnerships. In today’s age of globalization, the establishment of global partnerships is critical. Countries must work together to achieve collective goals, such as tackling climate change, sustainable development, and establishing effective economic trade policy. This one day conference will feature symposium on these topics and more.
This is a save the date for a popular annual AFAA Victorian Salon. Topic and speakers will be released closer to the date. This event is hosted by the Victoria Chapter and we thank the University of Melbourne for their generous sponsorship. The event starts at 6:00pm with cocktail reception from 6:00 - 6:40pm and formal proceedings starting at 6:45pm.
