What’s up? Summer Recruitment General LC Information Portfolio Party Conference Mania

1


Message from the EB AIESEC KPU has had an amazing first quarter. 3/10 BAMAs, 2 more TNs, and our first 2 EPs raised. But there are still 3 quarters to go! We still need to ensure that our school and the business community knows WHO we are and WHAT we do. We will be the number 1 organization on campus by the end of the year, and we will definitely bring more people to Canada and send more students out! Let’s start off the next quarter with a bang.

Team Member & Team Leader Every general member is participating in the team member program. You are a member of a team and have been assigned a role. There are no longer any director positions. If you were in a director position you now have a new title. For updates on your new title please check the Contact Info. Doc. The reason we have removed all director roles is because the title of director means that you are participating in the team leader program. To participate in the team leader program and hold the title of director one must have separate team meetings from the portfolio meeting and lead a team of 2 or more. Our LC reality has not reached the capacity to implement director roles. But Summer recruitment is just around the bend!

MyAIESEC.net If you have been unable to access my AIESEC please reregister. The system has been having some problems especially since we are now independent of UBC. So many of us have to re-register. Your VP will assign you to a role and a team and this will help you gauge your AIESEC experience.
