Dear Lasallian Alumni,
The UMAEL (World Union of Lasallian Alumni) is an international association that gathers all the Alumni Associations and Federations worldwide. Every four years it organizes a congress in order to share information and ideas on the life and vision of the Lasallian Alumni. The congress is a unique opportunity for the Alumni from different nations to connect with one another and create links of friendship and brotherhood.
The 6th UMAEL CONGRESS will take place from June 5 to June 9, 2015.
France has been chosen to be the host country for this important event. For us it will mean going back to the sources of Lasallian history, back to the country of the foun- der where the first schools were opened, so that we might better respond to today’s challenges.
The CONGRESS will be conducted at the Institut Polytechnique LaSalle, in the city of Beauvais, France (one hour from Paris by car or train).
The La Salle campus is an institution of higher education, member of IALU (Internatio- nal Association of LaSalle Universities), that educates 1850 students every academic year. It is a campus with 4 student residences with single students rooms in which you will be accommodated. On the campus you will also find the main building with halls and classrooms of all sizes, a chapel, a restaurant, a bar, sport facilities, etc.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Beauvais in June!
