Diplomats in Spain
Alfonso XII, 46 – 28014 Madrid – NIF: G80519887
A New Term of The Year 2014-15
Words from Our New President
We are in a new beginning year of AIDE until next June.
This summer, many of our friends ended their term in Madrid and are back to their countries or on the
way to other destinations. We miss them already and wish them good luck.
But the departure of so many is also the arrival of others. To all new diplomats and their spouses we give
the warmest welcome and hope that this diplomatic course is among the best in their careers.
We are very happy with the join of new partners in AIDE and some of them directly to the Board.
There are still vacancies on the Board this year where you can spend pleasant moments of pure
friendship but also a positive spirit at work. We invite you to approach or write to
[email protected] until the Board completes as by statute.
