AFLSE Intergovernmental Organizations SIG Newsletter



Happy New Year from the AFLSE! We all hope that you had a relaxing holiday season and wish you a prosperous 2009!

As many of you know, the AFLSE's Special Interest Group ("SIG") program was launched in 2008 to facilitate networking between students and alumni within their areas of professional expertise. A key feature of these groups has been the chance to seek mentoring and career advice from fellow alumni. Our informal feedback has indicated that mentees have been very appreciative of the support mentors have offered them. Furthermore, the SIGs have played a role in fostering professional networking opportunities by providing industry-specific member directories and through the organization of various events and meetings throughout the year.

We are pleased to offer this excellent resource to AFLSE members and plan to build on the progress made in 2008 in the coming year. To achieve this, we'd appreciate your help and suggestions about how to further develop the initiative. If you would like to serve as a SIG mentor, want to suggest a speaker, or have comments on the program, please send us a note. In particular, the Intergovernmental Organizations SIG is seeking someone based in the Washington, DC area to help organize events for the many alumni working there for the IMF and the World Bank.

Thanks again for your interest in the AFLSE and its Special Interest Groups.

Regards,

Michelle Risley - Intergovernmental Organizations SIG Chair

Osman Khan - SIG Program Chair
