American Australian Association
American Australian Association an organization that was established in 1948 tries to help promote cooperation and understanding between America and Australia. It is noted that each and every PM of Australia has been hosted by the association since 1950.
The mission of AAA is to broaden, strengthen and encourage ties across the Pacific through corporate, educational, economic, social and cultural activities, and people to people exchange.
It also operates a fund of privately funded educational fellowship to support post graduate studies and research between United States and Australia. It has already granted a total of over US$5.5 Mn.
There are two major events that take place for the members, the first is Association’s gala event. the annual benefit dinner that honors prominent Australian and American leaders. The other one is Australia Day Black Tie Gala which is held to commemorate Australia day and to celebrate the partnership.
The association was inspired by the relationship of United States and Australia during the World War II and the business and governmental interest of America was continued due to it.
