Welcome to ZENiTH, our new AMIDEAST Alumni Association. In the decades since AMIDEAST was founded, an exceptional group of thinkers, leaders and creators have passed through our educational and training programs, both at home or via exchange experiences abroad. The time has come for AMIDEAST to foster interaction and exchange within this group by establishing our new AMIDEAST Alumni Association. Home country programs organized by our AMIDEAST offices, along with professional development and networking offerings online, will provide opportunities to learn, share, mentor and lead in inspiring and engaging ways. We hope that this will be an opportunity for personal and professional growth for all our alumni, and we invite you to join ZENiTH to keep in touch with us and each other.

Ambassador Theodore H. Kattouf
President and Chief Executive Officer
