Vaibhav Jain Manifesto for Local Committee Coordinator 2013 | AIESEC in Thapar University

Section A| Opening Note AIESEC in Thapar University has come a long way in past two years. In the initial months of 2012 we had no definite structure and not much significance of AIESEC way. I saw all the Team Leaders working hard to achieve the summer cycle targets, though it eventually didn’t go so well but everyone kept working. We worked harder everyday with better hopes, August 2012 Recruitment cycle was the moment of change and happiness for AIESEC in Thapar University, we had a good membership to run and organize structure of this entity. We have talented members but they need to understand the Purpose, Mission, Vision and its values. In the next one year we need to bring our focus to the VISION of this organization by showing its PURPOSE, MISSION and VALUES to its integral members. We need to bring everyone in this organization on the same page. AIESEC values are high in meaning and they should be lived daily and not just mugged up. If we are living the values and know its purpose then we are creating an impact and leading towards the vision of AIESEC. AIESEC in Thapar University’s mission, vision and values should be closely knit to our personal mission, vision and values. Understanding the PURPOSE, MSSION, VISION and VALUES will bring following changes in the year 2013 and will lead to overall progress 

With a Powerful Purpose, they will be motivated to move themselves towards a better future.

With a Strong Mission, they will have goal to achieve.

With a Clear Vision, they will see what they are moving towards and its impact.

With integration of values in their life, they will be able to move forward smoothly.

We need to not only reach out to our members, but reach out to every single youth in Patiala to create a positive impact; that is AIESEC’s vision, and it can only be accomplished if we are focused for it. I would work towards achieving everything planned in this manifesto and make sure that above mentioned statements happen and won’t just let these plans to be merely on paper.

2. What have been your main achievements and non achievements in AIESEC in the past? (Mention a max of three each)

Main Achievements: 1. Knowing WHY of AIESEC: I have been able to live six values of AIESEC and realize how wonderful it is and the impact that it can create. 2. Introducing ASL in Even Semester: Keeping in mind the response for School Of languages in Thapar University. Having it just once in a year made us refuse to so many students willing to learn cultural diversity and foreign language, thus I took a step forward and introduced ASL in even semester to impact more number of students. 3. Time Management: For working under three AIESEC portfolios I had to devote good number of hours but simultaneously I was able to balance time for college and family. Non achievements: 1. AIESEC GCDP Internship: I couldn‘t go for AIESEC internship. I plan to go for exchange in the next winter cycle.

3. Describe the experience of being a part of the Leadership Body/Management Body of AIESEC Thapar University. How do you think other members on the team would evaluate your contribution to the team & LCs organizational direction?

It has made me more confident in life and improved decision making. The superb co-leaders have made this experience memorable and its amazing to see the growth of AIESEC in Thapar University. AIESEC in Thapar University has a brilliant team and everyone here has been supportive enough.

On the Academic front, as I am in fourth semester so attending college and exams during mid March and May.

Section E | General Questionnaire 1. Make an analysis of AIESEC’s key competitors in the region (Local Chapter Geographical region) and what challenges they present to AIESEC and what can we learn from them.

How do you see the organization direction of AIESEC Thapar University’s shaping up in the coming two years? Also, give a SWOT analysis of the LC for 2012. Past Two Years In past two years the performance and culture of AIESEC in Thapar University has changed drastically. I guess two years ago no one was aware about practical implication of AIESEC way but now the whole general body is living the AIESEC way!. The numbers have increased four folds in the past two years for exchange portfolios. 

In the year 2011 AIESEC in Thapar University had around 10 outgoing exchanges, the exchanges have increased to 21 in the year 2012.

We had around 3-4 Incoming exchanges in the year 2011 and the same has increased to 14 in the year 2012.

The General body has witnessed an increase from 14 to 40 members.

Vaibhav Jain Manifesto for Local Committee Coordinator 2013 | AIESEC in Thapar University

AIESEC in Thapar University had somewhat informal culture in the year 2011 and department based task and everyone worked collectively but the same has been transformed and it has been departmentalised in the year 2012. Next Two Years Two years from now, I see AIESEC in Thapar University full of motivated and hard working people leading with direction. Members will be living AIESEC values and they will think out of the box and implement innovative ideas. With the rightly set culture I see AIESEC in Thapar University reaching its exponential growth and becoming the most progressive entity. SWOT analysis Strengths

2. State your understanding of the inter-relation between the 4 ELD programs. What do you propose for 2013 that will ensure capitalization of this inter-relationship? The growth in TMP and TLP drive the growth of GCDP and GIP and vice versa. AIESEC in Thapar University has witnessed the same after the August 2011 recruitments; it led to growth in oGCDP and iGCDP. GCDP and GIP also contribute to increase in TMP and TLP. Exchange Participants tend to join TMP after returning from their exchange programs.

I propose growth in TMP-TLP through recruitments which will lead to growth in exchanges. We need to enroll EPs in TMP and TLP as they are highly motivated and will work with dedication for the entity.

3. List down any innovation(s) that you intend to bring in Program departments/teams. Innovations to be intended in departments/teams: 

Evolution in Organization Structure

Quality management by each department

Increasing growth of AIESEC Products

Collaborative Partnerships

School of Languages

Vaibhav Jain Manifesto for Local Committee Coordinator 2013 | AIESEC in Thapar University

Financial Management 1. Describe your understanding of the role of Vice-President Finance in the LC.

Vice President Finance is responsible for handling the flow of money through the organization, incomes and spending. As discussed in OSC 2012, VPF is a key position in any entity. Role of Vice President Finance: 

Budgeting for each department


Handling University Relation

Investment in the entity

Bringing transparency and making GB members aware about finances of entity

Tracking cash flow

Auditing expenses of each department

Synergy meetings with all the departments

2. Define a financially sustainable LC. How do you envision AIESEC Thapar University in 2013 with respect to financial sustainability? Financial sustainable LC is the one which is able sell their products (ELD Programs) at price that covers their expenses and generates a profit. Financially sustainable LC needs to focus on Long term goals like delivering quality experiences. The partnership of AIESEC with Thapar University leads to financial sustainability of this entity. The Logistics for events are offered by the University free of cost. Thus the expenses incurred in comparison to the income generated from exchanges is very less leading to huge profit. Proper budgeting and accounting will ensure financial sustainability of the entity. 3. Attach an outline budget with respect to your ELD program targets, including ER income from events, collaborations etc. Inflow (Rs)

Outflow (Rs)

oGCDP: 6,30,000

Miscellaneous: 1,00,000

iGIP: 70,000 ER:2,50,000

Vaibhav Jain Manifesto for Local Committee Coordinator 2013 | AIESEC in Thapar University

Talent Management 1. What is your understanding of the distinction between TM as a function and TM as a program? Evaluate the performance of both in 2012.

TM as a function includes: 

Recruitment, Selection Procedures and inductions of the students

Manpower Planning

Departmentalization of members based on their capabilities

Feedback from members

Discharge of Member

TM as a program includes: 

TMP- TLP Management

TMP- TLP leading to exchange growth

In 2012, TM as a function had a good performance during the second recruitment cycle. Recruitment was well planned with the pre decided number of manpower required in each department. We lacked in the right way of discharging member, the recruit should be analysed if he fits somewhere else. TM as a program also performed well, TMP-TLP led to growth in programs. Talent Management needs to work upon the personal goal setting of the members and aligning it with that of the organization.

2. Analyze the recruitment’s conducted this year. What innovations do you propose in the existing processes to make them even more effective for next year? January 2012 Recruitment Drive: 

Low turnout of applicants

Poor branding

August 2012 Recruitment Drive: 

Major response through Lead! in Frosh Week

High OGX response due to experience sharing of EPs

Around 180 forms sold and good turnout for GDs and Personal Interview

Well planned and organized

Recruited 28 students

Activities to allocate departments to new recruits

Vaibhav Jain Manifesto for Local Committee Coordinator 2013 | AIESEC in Thapar University

Innovations for 2013 Recruitment 

Promoting Experience of returned EPs (experience sharing)

Recruiting returned EPs

Lead! In other universities

Questionnaire to departmentalize recruits

February Recruitments main focus on OGX and recruit few members to meet departments requirements

Marketing 1. What emphasis does Marketing as a function hold currently for AIESEC in Thapar University? Critically analyze the same. Also evaluate its contribution to growth in ELD programs.

AIESEC in Thapar University has one of the best marketing strategies in comparison to other organizations. Marketing has helped to establish brand value of AIESEC in the university. 

The promotion of all the events is excellent and majorly it is through virtual platforms.

Till now marketing in Thapar University has been worked out collective by all the departments in promoting the events.

We lack a definite marketing team and we need to bring a change in the organization structure.

Promotion and marketing of events like Information Seminars and LEAD has lead to immense growth of ELD Programs.

Last year AIESEC in Thapar University witnessed growth in TMP applicants and winter OGX cycle because of wide-spread promotion of the Information Seminar and Lead.

We need to improve upon marketing for incoming exchanges and the same should be focused. 2. How should Marketing evolve in the LC in 2013? How do you see it contributing to ELD programs in 2013

Marketing should evolve in the LC in 2013 in following ways: 

Evolution in the organization structure to have a marketing specific team

Marketing Team needs to work in synergy BD

Focus should be laid on marketing through virtual platforms

Promotion of events should be wide spread, that is targeting youth other than Thapar University also.

Show casing Impact with Trainee experiences

Partnership with media organizations

The basic idea behind marketing is to promote AIESEC products and thus it will contribute to grow ELD Programs.
