AIESEC History In 1948, seven economic and business students of Western Europe came together in Stockholm. They founded what has grown out to be the largest international student organization, AIESEC. AIESEC is an acronym for Association Internationale des Etudiants en Sciences Economiques et Commerciales: an organization set up for students in economics and business related studies. Nowadays, AIESEC is no longer strictly an economics and business related organization, because it is open for students of every academic major. With the idea of recovering the relations between European countries, the founders of AIESEC set up the following goal: no more war! They believed they would achieve this goal by giving individuals the experience of living and working abroad themselves. By giving people cultural experiences, they would create mutual understanding. Students don’t only get aware of different cultures, but learn a lot during their internship as well. Your experience becomes much more intensive if you really work and live abroad! Therefore, the main purpose of all AIESEC activities is personal development. The vision of AIESEC is: “Peace and fulfillment of humankind’s potential” The means to this vision are formulated as follows: “Our international platform enables young people to explore and develop their potential to provide leadership for a positive impact on society.” Currently, AIESEC has grown from 7 to over 110 countries. We have become the largest student organization in the world and we are the largest NGO in the world, after the United Nations. Within these countries, an AIESEC board is present in 1,500 cities in the world and more than 50,000 students are active members at this moment. They make it possible for students around the world to go on an international internship or go for an international project (for example, the Ambassadors Program and NOUR program). Currently, there are about 13,000 international exchanges realized each year. "I commend AIESEC's continuing efforts to develop the future business leadership of our countries” Nelson Mandela

"The United Nations has long recognized that the imagination, ideals and energies of young men and women are vital for the continuing development of the societies in which they live. And since its inception in 1948, AIESEC has contributed to this development by serving as an agent of positive change through education and cultural exchange. In an era of globalization, your programs have helped young people around the world to develop a broader understanding of cultural, socio-economic and business management issues." Kofi Anan 3    


AIESEC Structure Globally, AIESEC exists of 3 levels. There is an international committee (AIESEC International), 110 national committees (Member Committees) and 10 local committees (Local Committees) in the Netherlands. AIESEC International (AI) AIESEC International is the global umbrella organization of AIESEC, located in Rotterdam since 1997. 22 people of about sixteen nationalities (mostly after a long AIESEC career in their own country) work full-time to lead and coordinate all global AIESEC activities and communicate between the 110 countries in which AIESEC is present. Member Committee (MC) AIESEC the Netherlands AIESEC the Netherlands is one of the 110 Member Committees (MC) and is located in Rotterdam as well. AIESEC the Netherlands is responsible for coordinating and supporting the Local Committees of the Netherlands. Seven students work one year full-time to keep the organization running. Furthermore, they are involved in the strategic development of AIESEC worldwide. In the Netherlands, AIESEC is located in 10 university cities: Amsterdam, Groningen, Leiden, Nijmegen, Rotterdam, Twente, Utrecht, Wageningen, Maastricht and Tilburg. Local Committee (LC) AIESEC Tilburg AIESEC Tilburg exists for 64 years now and is the oldest LC of the Netherlands. The team of AIESEC Tilburg consists of 28 board members, working full- or part-time for either exchange or career related activities. Everybody working for AIESEC Tilburg is part of the Local Committee (LC). Five of them form the daily Executive Board (EB) of AIESEC Tilburg. But where does Make a Move fit in this story? Since September 2003, the organization AIESEC in the Netherlands knows two brands. The brand AIESEC stands for the Exchange Program and the brand Make a Move stands for all parts that are involved in the labor market, such as the Make a Move Career Week, the Future is Yours!, Meet a Mentor, Women at the Top and the Profile Book. Internally, there is no distinction between the team members of Make a Move or team members from the exchange teams.

Board of AIESEC Tilburg A sparkling year full of surprises is what you can expect when you choose to fulfill a board position within AIESEC! You will work together in a board of 28 enthusiastic students for one year. During this year you will learn how to deal with different people, planning and prioritizing, coordinating and organizing. You will get to know yourself much better and obviously you will face many challenging choices. It is really rewarding to work one year in order to develop the organization professionally, with a central place for your own personal development. Much time is invested in the development of AIESEC board members. You will learn to solve problems and carry responsibilities independently as well as within a team. You have specific, function related tasks, but you are also involved in activities of the others. In conclusion, your AIESEC year provides you with a wide range of different experiences and challenges. The beauty of AIESEC is the fact that it is organized nationally. You will notice that the quality of this organization is a lot higher because of this. You will be often involved in a project that is not only performed in Tilburg, but all over the Netherlands. The professional way of working, the major responsibilities and contact with your team, students, businesses and organizations, makes it an educational year with lots of fun. Finally, you will benefit from the fact that AIESEC has a very large international network. With one phone call you can be sure that in over 110 countries someone will be waiting for you to pick you up from the airport and will show you the city of your destination.

Board Activities Throughout a board year with AIESEC, you will get many chances and opportunities to develop yourself. In line with our mission, AIESEC focuses a lot on the development of its members. The opportunities that AIESEC will offer you are a unique chance and will speed up your personal development. As a member you can attend trainings, reception weekends, national and international conferences and many other international opportunities. All these opportunities will be explained more extensively below. Trainings Cycle

If you become a member of AIESEC Tilburg you will go through the trainings cycle. The goal of this cycle is to bring a structure in the personal development and trainings of the members. It will also make you aware of the different development and training phases you will go through. Every member can receive about 30 training moments a year. Keep in mind that the learning experience that AIESEC offers is for 80% the work that one actually does in AIESEC, not solely the trainings on itself. 1. Self-Assessment: E.g. Feedback, personal goal setting and personality tests. 2. Kick-Off: National, local, team, system and functional takeover. 3. Practical: Skill development: e.g. Interviewing, writing, sales, time management. 4. Personal: E.g. Inhouse days, personal management, application & assessment trainings. Reception Weekends Every year, AIESEC committees in the Netherlands organize five different reception weekends together. These weekends are meant to give the foreign trainees an insight into the Dutch culture and the several AIESEC cities. The special things about these weekends are that you really get in touch with trainees from all over the world and with AIESEC members throughout the whole country. So, you will meet students from for example Australia, Brazil, China, Spain and all the 250 AIESEC members from the Netherlands. 7    


National Conferences During these two-day conferences (organized twice a year) all the AIESEC board members gather together, to get to know each other and to share experiences. These two days consist of trainings and policy sessions, where everyone thinks about the short and long term strategic direction of AIESEC the Netherlands. And most of all, it is all about fun and getting to know new people! International Conferences Every year AIESEC worldwide organizes more than 350 international conferences! Every member of AIESEC is able to attend these amazing conferences. The special thing about such a conference is that you are able to interact with hundreds of students from all over the world. Nearly every conference is about personal development and about leadership. It is a unique experience to learn more about other cultures and countries together with students who do the same work for AIESEC but in a completely different country and reality. Next to that it is really amazing to meet so many people to build up a great international network. LC Tilburg went, for example, to Barcelona last year. Cultural Educational & Exchange Development (CEED) The CEED program is a program that enables AIESEC members to do a board position in one of the 110 AIESEC countries. This can be for a small period of time (1 week) or for a longer period of time (1 year). The content of these projects vary from organizing a conference in order to share your knowledge concerning approaching companies. Board Position in Another Country AIESEC offers you the opportunity to fulfill a board position in a Local Committee or even a Member Committee of another country. This gives you the opportunity to develop yourself, not only on a personal level, but also on a professional and cultural level. At this moment Dutch students can fulfill leadership positions in Denmark, Brazil, Bahrain, Ghana, Qatar and Jordan.

Board Activities AIESEC Tilburg A great board year is what you can expect if you decide to apply for AIESEC. For a whole year you will work intensively together with 27 enthusiastic students. In this year you will learn to deal with different kinds of people, learn how to manage your time, to plan, to coordinate, to organize and many more things! It is extremely useful to commit yourself one year to an organization that wants to grow in quality and quantity and where your personal development is centralized. The great thing about AIESEC is that it is a national organization that results in the fact that both quality and professionalism are one of the key elements within the organization. The professional way of working, the huge responsibilities and the contact with your team, students, companies and organizations make an AIESEC year amazing. Time As a part-time board member you are part of your team, but also of AIESEC Tilburg. This means that you will spend more or less 15 hours a week on your team and AIESEC. You will be working 1/3 of your time for your team, 1/3 of your time on function specific tasks and 1/3 of your time for AIESEC in general. Monday evening is AIESEC evening. You will have dinner and a meeting with your own team. AIESEC Tilburg has a LC meeting once every two weeks on Monday evening at Café Brandpunt, where important and fun things will be discussed. After your team meeting or LC meeting we will have drinks with the LC and the trainees and have a great evening (and night) together! Besides that, you will have an office shift once a week for half a day, where you can work on your projects and function specific tasks. General Job Description As mentioned before, more or less 1/3 of your time you will be working for AIESEC in general. To give an idea of what this means a short overview is provided below. •

Reception The reception of foreign trainees who do an internship in Tilburg is a responsibility of the whole LC. Once in a while activities are organized (with a so-called ‘family system’) to interact as much as possible. These activities can be anything, like having dinner, going to the cinema, go bowling etc. This way you really get to know people from all over the world.

Promotion Activities Once in a while AIESEC Tilburg is promoting itself or its activities, such as the Make a Move Career Week or Outgoing exchange internships and projects. To make sure that as many students will get familiar with the products that we can offer, the whole LC will help a bit in order to make these promotional activities a big success. This can be done for example by handing out flyers or doing a lecture talk and make students enthusiastic about going abroad.

Attendance at LC Meetings and Activities During a LC meeting the most important topics remaining AIESEC Tilburg will be discussed. This is the reason why your presence is required. Furthermore, you also have to be present at LC activities such as kick-off, policy and take-over weekends. These activities are important to determine the objectives of AIESEC Tilburg and laying the foundation for your term and passing it on to your successors. To keep AIESEC Tilburg sustainable and to improve the overall quality, we need the entire LC.

National and International Conferences We will promote the opportunity of going to national and international conferences in the LC, so if you get the chance to join, do so!

Events of Other Teams For you and for the rest of the LC, it is nice if you attend as many activities as possible of other teams. Therefore most of the times you and your team will try to help out other teams in order to make each event or activity a big success. This way team activities become AIESEC Tilburg activities.

Take Over After your AIESEC year you are going to take over your position and tasks to your successor. In order to keep growing and improving every year, we really need the whole LC to transfer all the knowledge as good as possible. This is essential for a good start of the next year and for the continuity of AIESEC Tilburg.
