AIESEC Curtin SLAP Corner Portfolio updates EP RTF and MAC updates AIESEC Curtin EB election 2013 details Upcoming events and important notices

Second Language Acquisition Program (SLAP) Hey guys, welcome to the SLAP corner! Let me enlighten you about the SLAP (Second Language Acquisition Program) project that will be running over summer (Nov 5th- Dec 20th). This SLAP project is the first in AIESEC Curtin and it will be in Spanish! The whole idea behind this SLAP project is to invite a native Spanish speaker from either Spain or Latin America, to teach and share their culture while they stay and experience Australia. The classes will be less than 10 students and aims to be fun and interactive. So for those staying in Perth, it is a good and affordable opportunity to take up Spanish! The course content includes learning about basic introduction, youth culture, shopping, travelling, food, etc. There will also be a Spanish movie night and a multicultural evening where everyone can get together and practice their Spanish!

Some fun facts about Spanish: 1. It is the second most used language in the world after Chinese 2. It is one of the most phonetic languages. Hence makes it easy to read and pronounce 3. Spanish and English share much of their vocabulary

We will be having a promotion for the SLAP in Spanish from the 17th till the 21st of September, where if you and one of your friends register for the course on the same day, you both will get 10% off the cost of the course! So what are you waiting for!! Promotion last up till this Friday ONLY! The SLAP OC team is really excited and working really hard towards making this program a success, and we would like to share it with all of you, so do come and join us for SLAP, as it is for you guys!! Cheers. If you would like more information about SLAP, please visit SLAP at Curtin FB page or talk to Jacinta Lee, SLAP OCP.

Portfolio update – BD, Finance Business Development 

Networking event with the theme "Experience international talent in your workforce” was very successful as the externals were well engaged and enthusiastic for follow up meetings. This event is definitely a highlight in September. Thanks the OC for all effort put in to organize this event and making it a success.

Chad, Dominic, Michelle and Adil have created their plan of attack for the next 3 weeks before the tuition free week. In their plan, there is division of labour for BD activities to increase efficiency. A plan is ready, NOW IT'S TIME to put plan into action.

Michael has matched STAWA with a Botswana intern, Tsungie and now he is assisting Tsungie for Visa application before we can welcome her in the Perth Airport. :) Finance 

Cash at Bank = $10,517 (It is definitely a pretty figure to look at :D)

I have replan the LC budget to provide a realistic view of financial capability of AIESEC Curtin in the next quarter. Here are a few key things to note for September-November period: o o o

Our main income source is EP revenue hence MAC & OGX your hard work is crucial for the next period! Bring it on guys! Another big lump of income is TN revenue hence BD & UR keep FIGHTING to raise an intern! You can do it! I've included a $150 for LC retreat in the budget as an appreciation of all the efforts that you members have contributed to the LC in the whole 2012!

AIESEC Curtin EB election 2013 details AIESEC Curtin Executive Board (EB) election for 2013 is coming soon and this is important to every member in the LC. In this section I will show you the important steps and days for the election process. First I am very happy that LCP 2013 Ivan had helped me in this part for explaining the process to me. And he had something to tell the LC:

“Hey AIESEC-ers! In case you didn’t know, nominations for your 2013 Executive Board are now open! How exciting! The nominations close on the 26th of September which would be the date that platforms are released as well. What are you waiting for? Do you have someone in mind that you think would do a great job in determining the direction and future of AIESEC Curtin next year? Well nominate or second them! If you think that you have what it takes as well to be part of the Executive Board for 2013, don’t just stand there and wonder about it, get yourself nominated! I had the opportunity to run for the Executive Board for 2012 and even though I didn’t get it at that time, the experience that I had gotten was something that I will never forget. I recommend for everyone to experience it as well. Good Luck & Stay Awesome! Love, Ivan Tang”

Portfolio update – OGX Hi all! With assignments and test popping out here and there, everyone is busy for a couple of rough weeks. OGX is working even harder than usual with September being a crucial time for both RAISING and MATCHING EPs. With the collaboration with MAC and EP RTF, we have increased our applications to 37, especially with the special promotion held during the last 2 weeks. We had a successful run the past 2 weeks, with a total of 13 expectation interviews conducted and 9 MRB passes. And out of those 9, we have 3 AIESECers! This puts our total members for going on exchange to 7! As for Matching, the process has been a bit slow, as the programs are not fully out yet and some EPs are still undergoing the process and interviews for matching. The main preferred destination spots for EPs for this year happen to be in the Asia Pacific region – namely Taiwan and Vietnam, and Eastern Europe – mainly Poland. There has also been some interest expressed to Latin America like Brazil. So give yourselves a pet in the back if you helped promoting these countries in our EP recruitment  We also have some assistance from the MC who made Country partnerships with the following countries last month – Columbia, Poland, Taiwan, Czech republic, Egypt, SCONE (Argentina, Peru, Chile), Malaysia, Ukraine, Mauritius, Thailand, Hungary, Romania, Philippines and Bulgaria. All these countries have agreements with Australia to accept Australia Interns!

Many thanks to Percy Grunwald who helped out with both EPRTF and MRB for the past 2 weeks 

Date-to-Remember: 28th September 2012 (Application deadline!)
