ISITT ALUMNI ASSOCIATION

About the Association

In the view of promoting and supporting the Institute as an internationally renowned center of academic excellence, alumni of Tangier’s International Higher Institute of Tourism came together to create an alumni association for the Institute supporting alumni programs and seeking to strengthen alumni bonds of fellowship and professional association.

A word of the alumni association’s president

I feel honored and proud to be president of Tangier’s International Higher Institute of Tourism alumni association and I would like to thank those who have placed their trust and confidence in me. I intend to put my knowledge, energy and full commitment into carrying out the mission I have been entrusted with.  My ultimate goal is to rejuvenate the association and further expand its scope of work. Current students and alumni should combine their efforts and partner effectively to perpetuate a passion for a life-long involvement with the Institute. We should be a strong body of fully supportive members willing to commit their resources towards the attainment of our common objectives

The alumni association’s members strive to create a sound platform that enables both alumni and students to add value to their professional life. The idea behind establishing an alumni association for the Institute is motivated by the desire to strengthen the bonds of friendship and solidarity between alumni and current students within Morocco and across its borders. The members are determined to contribute, by all means, to the development of the Moroccan Tourism industry and add value to it.

The association mobilizes and utilizes the varied skills and expertise possessed by its members to help students make a success of their studies. It is devoted to promote Tangier’s International Higher Institute of Tourism diploma and contribute to the evolution of Hotel and Tourism studies through contributing to the training of students and participating in the re-examination of the teaching curricula,  and promoting internships in Morocco and abroad for students and graduates. It also endeavors to assist the administration in its efforts to help graduates integrate into working life and offering exemplary and highly professional services to give the Tourism sector the professionalism it needs.

Tangier’s International Higher Institute of Tourism alumni association is a vast community involving alumni, current students and Tourism professionals actively engaged to the institute and striving to positively influence its reputation. We are a unified body with a shared vision and whose work positively impacts the credibility, advancement and good governance of our Institute.

INAUGURAL SPEECH

Mr. Director, my dear friends.

About fifteen years ago, I came to Tangier with nothing but my baccalaureate degree and the determination to build the bright future I always envisioned.

I never thought that Tangier would captivate me and Tourism would become my sole passion.Several years have elapsed since then; and the love I have for the institute that taught me everything I know about tourism and the city that welcomed me never stopped growing.And if I stand before you today as a presidential candidate, it is to give them back, as much as I could, a part of what I owe them.Contributing to the implementation of various innovative projects that will benefit all members of the alumni association, such is the main motivation behind my interest in running for president.These projects are clearly outlined in the little booklet that I prepared on this occasion and which has been circulated.But having a clear idea of what I am determined to accomplish does definitely not mean that I am willing to work alone. I intend to work hand in hand with all the association’s members and stakeholders, making the most of all the proposals and ideas I receive, provided that they serve the interests of Tangier’s International Higher Institute of Tourism and its alumni association.

I hope I will live up to your expectations and I promise to spare no effort in ensuring the best radiation possible, both nationally and internationally, of our association.

Thank you.
