AAANA was created during the 2010 All Ateneo Alumni Convention in Anaheim, California. It became operational after its newly drafted Constitution and By-Laws were ratified and the first national officers were elected by the attendees in the 2012 Las Vegas All Ateneo Alumni Convention. This was made possible by the partnership with the Ateneans of Las Vegas.
The 2014 All Ateneo Alumni Convention in New York City, the second under the auspices of AAANA, was held in partnership with the Ateneo of North America - North East, Inc. Moving forward, AAANA shall provide support and guidance to future All Ateneo Conventions and shall establish standard and continuity from one convention to another.
To clearly signify the aspirations of AAANA as an organization of many alumni groups, our logo bears the motto, "EST UNITATIS IN REBORE" - which means, "IN STRENGTH, THERE IS UNITY." To learn more about AAANA's constitution and by laws, click the action button below.
