An Enlightening Evening and Successful Fall Social

Dec 03, 2014

 

Over 40 people gathered together to hear a great guest speaker at the Bay Area Fall Social.  Dr. Koen Von Rompay talked about his experience starting up a non-profit organization, Sahaya International, built all on volunteers, much like AIESEC, and how it’s making a direct impact on fighting aids in various countries.  He also shared his experiences starting off as a Veterinarian in Belgium and now as a Research Virologist at UC Davis.  Some of his discoveries have laid the foundation for HIV treatment and prevention strategies that are now used globally.  We had to cut off the Q&A at 30 minutes because Dr. Rompay's presentation was so inspiring and intriguing, however, many people had an opportunity to ask him questions during dessert.  To see more pictures, go to the Fall Social Album.

We had three different LCs participate and help in the event – San Jose, Berkeley and Davis.  AIESEC Alabama alumus, Renee Courington, opened up her beautiful home to all our guests, complete with an incredible display of glass blown pumpkins.  A special thank you to Renee for becoming an AIESEC Life Sponsor (Entrepreneurship Circle)!

The evening was an incredible success as the hub asked attendees to join or renew their membership.  Many alumni sponsored AIESEC students for the AIESEC Life membership.  And all participants who paid for their membership at the event, a lucky two were selected for an exclusive Tesla Factory Tour!

AIESEC Life Bay Area would like to thank the following individuals (a record breaking 78!) for renewing or becoming first time members, helping make the Bay Area the top hub in the Fall Membership campaign.  We are very grateful to:
