During 2019, the Australian Fulbright Alumni Association (AFAA) has celebrated two important milestones: (i) the 70th Anniversary of Australia’s Fulbright Program; and (ii) AFAA’s 30th birthday. It was a busy year for the organization, making the most of the year to celebrate the Fulbright program and our vibrant alumni base. During 2019 we held dozens of events and engaged hundreds of people across Australia. The year’s events began on 1st March with the Canberra public Salon on the Future of the Australian-American Relationship. The year concluded some 30 events later in Adelaide on 28th November, with the South Australian Thanksgiving dinner held in conjunction with the Australian-American Association. Our major initiative for 2019 was the Frayed Lives, Threads of Hope program. Through nine events held throughout November across three capital cities, the program engaged more than 500 people. Throughout the year we have welcomed our engagement with the Australian-American Fulbright Commission, the US State Department and many other partners.
