  4. 4. Being part of AIESEC’s 2011/12 gene-ration of was an honour. It was a yearof great changes and significance forthe organisation. Looking at the big-ger context it was the time to startmaking AIESEC 2015, AIESEC’s glo-bal midterm ambition, come true.Aiming on becoming a global youthvoice and first-choice partner andcreating a cross-generational impacthas its demands on many levels ofan organisation’s. Living up to thesedemands as part of a global networkbut mostly also seeking to improveAIESEC in Switzerland’s current state– fostering a stronger connection toour core work, creating more pow-erful experiences for members andincreasing our relevance – placedgreat responsibility on our generati-on. It also demanded for finding theright balance between developingfor the future and building on thepast, creating the new and apprecia-ting the existing, transformation andsustainability. This is what the term2011/12 was about.The term was about new starts, in-cluding the implementation of se-veral projects that were initiated byour predecessor and that we happilytook over. It was the first time thatlocal executive boards started theiroperations together with the natio-nal board and that a national plan-ning conference was held to kick offthe term and ensure a unified direc-tion. The first time that we workedsplit up in two departments – inco-ming and outgoing students – forthe internship programmes, both,on national and local level. The firsttime to work with an extended exe-cutive board structure on nationallevel – integrating business deve-lopment and communications, in-cluding the implementation of thelatter one on local level.At the same time AIESEC in Switzer-land was the manifestation of diver-sity, living one of the core values ofour organisation to the fullest andbeing probably the most diverseentity in the whole network. 8 localcommittees in 3 different languagezones, all subject to very individualrealities, led by a 100% internationalboard consisting of 7 people from 6countries in 3 continents. An assetand a challenge. Looking back at theachievements of the term, however,it seems AIESEC in Switzerland capi-talized on this asset and challengequite well.Our core product, exchange, wasthe absolute focus, and after yearsof (sometimes partially, sometimesfully) loosing sight of it, it wasn‘tdoubted on any level that facilita-ting international experiences anddeveloping socially responsible lea-ders, is what AIESEC stands for, alsoin Switzerland. Even though it re-quired sacrifices in other areas thisfocus reflected in the term’s results(32% growth in delivered intern-ships), which were by far the bestin the last 7 years. Much of thisachievement was attributed to aWords of Welcome
  5. 5. Only building up on each other’swork an organisation that is as dy-namic as AIESEC can be successful.Building on the past and developingfor the future. Sustainability andtransformation.This is what I wish all following ge-nerations of AIESEC in Switzerland.And that they all may have such po-werful, life-shaping and memorableexperiences in this great organisati-on, as my team and me, and hope-fully all other 400+ members, werelucky to have. Thank you for yourefforts and passion. Thank you for amemorable term.AIESECly yours,Birgit HaberlPresidentAIESEC in Switzerland 2011/12membership focused on perfor-mance and learning, whereas thetwo recruitments which were amajor success, greatly contributedto ensure the members were theright ones for the organisation andvice versa. Also member education(Swiss conferences are still knownthroughout the whole AIESEC net-work for their high standards) andputting in place the right structureswere crucial initiatives.We proudly celebrated our history- AIESEC in Switzerland’s 60th an-niversary - and set some stepping-stones for the future. We reached afinancial surplus to support the nextgeneration’s operations and rene-wed the partnership concept for ourNational Support Group. To ensu-re stability and growth in the long-term and increase the organisation’ssustainability a 3-year plan and newfinancial model were designed andput into the hands of the next gene-ration to approve and implement.Birgit Haberl, President

  7. 7. Established in 1951 it was a pleasurefor AIESEC in Switzerland to celebrate60 years of its existence in the term2011/12. A highlight of the celebrationswas the Gala Dinner held in the res-taurant “Zum Äusseren Stand” in Bern30.9.2011. Carlos Duran, Alumni ofAIESEC in Mexico and AIESEC in Aust-ria, who graduated from ETH Zürichand now works in the city of Lucernewas leading through a program spicedwith reminiscences out of this sixtyyears. Highlights of the evening werethe presentation of the regards sentby Victor Loewenstein, president ofAIESEC Alumni International and thefounder of AIESEC in Switzerland“Unfortunately my current healthstate doesn´t allow me to be withyou tonight. Therefore I wouldlike to let you know in this way,that since we founded AIESEC inSwitzerland in 1951, I felt alwaysconnected to the organizationand to the people who were dri-ving the international exchangesthrough-out the years. Please ac-cept my apologies for not beingwith you.I wish all of the participants ofthe gala dinner a memorableevening and to AIESEC in Switzer-land many successful years in thefuture.Best regards,Heinz Allenspach.”Mr. Heinz Allenspach.Among the guests of the eveningwas the event sponsor and AIESEC inSwitzerland’slong-term partner Cre-dit Suisse, who´s representative Mr.Werner Gygax was highlighting today´simportance of an international organi-zation like AIESEC for large internatio-nal companies as Credit Suisse itself.From Alumni side, former membersof AIESEC Switzerland from almostevery decade were present and enjo-yed this evening. After the official partthe active AIESEC invited to an afterparty at the club Silo where the celeb-ration continued till the early morning.“I deeply regret that I will not beable to join the festivities and ac-cept your kind invitation as I hadwanted to public acknowledgethe role which AIESEC Switzerlandand AIESEC Geneva played in theestablishment and financing ofwhat became the AI.

  8. 8. There were four main initiativesin Talent Management in the term2011-2012:1. Members’ efficiency: Local time-lines and the structures of LocalCommittees were modified tosupport the core activity of theorganization2. Motivation and Rewards & Re-cognition (R&R): all AIESEC Pro-grams were packaged as pro-ducts to ensure that people areapplying with right expectationsand motivation; a new transpa-rent National R&R system waslaunched3. Education: A national educa-tion cycle was created; Localinductions were aligned; Natio-nal education of Vice Presidentswas boosted; Local transition ofExecutive Boards was aligned4. Processes: National guidelinesand tools for various Talent Ma-nagement processes were crea-ted and supported the develop-ment of Local CommitteesLet’s look more into some nume-rical results of the term. Followingthe AIESEC’s global vision for 2015,AIESEC in Switzerland strived to givemore people an opportunity to havea high quality AIESEC experience. Asan outcome, the number of partici-pants of Team Member and TeamLeader programs increased by 160%and 47% respectively. This ensuredthat, on average, each team leaderwas leading three team members,which means that more memberscould gain a valuable leadership ex-perience.MembershipIuliia Palamarchuk, Vice Presidentof Talent Management
  9. 9. One of the objectives of the yearwas to improve recruitment proces-ses, in particular the promotion ofthe organization and the selectionof members. Learning from our ex-perience, we increased the numberof applicants for AIESEC’s programsby 50% (from autumn to spring) thatallowed us to have a better selec-tion. The number of applicants foreach position increased from 1.2 inautumn 2010 to 1.9 in spring 2012.Despite specific local challenges,all Local Committees had more ap-plicants than needed members ac-cording to HR planning (from 27%to 114% more) and 5 out of 8 LocalCommittees over-performed theirown plans.Driven by the value of diversity, Localcommittees diversified their mem-bership: there were 40% students ofeconomics, 17% of business, 17% ofother social sciences, 7% of law, 6%of languages, 4% of natural sciencesand engineering.As a proof of members’ satisfactionwith their experience, the retentionrate of participants of the Team Lea-der program was close to 90% andof the Team Member program 65%.Overall, 75% of members of AIESECin Switzerland stayed in the organi-zation from October 2011 till June2012. 61% of members attended na-tional conferences.Being aware that one of the key fac-tors of growth in core activities isthe local structure we focused onchanging the mindset and prioritiesof Local Committees. In the end ofthe term 52% of members workeddirectly in the core activity of or-ganization (outgoing and incomingexchange), 28% were in supporti-ve functions (talent management,communications, finances), and 20%were involved in projects. For com-parison, one year earlier only 30%of members worked connected tocore activities. Furthermore, 90% ofmembers had a clear job descriptionin 2012 comparing to 60% one yearearlier.To conclude, the main achievementsof the term were the improvementof recruitment processes, achieve-ment of a result oriented attitude ofmembers and a national unity.the year was tocess, in particularanization and thearning from oured number ofms by 50 % (fromowed us to have aorganization.

  13. 13. Focus and StrategiesTo drive the growth of our organization, inthe term 2011-­‐12 we set three nationalpriorities to enable more Swiss students togo for more internships. These were thefollowing: Quality Management, CountrySpecific Recruitment, and Student Marketing.We were successful in creating new studentcontracts,in which we specified the servicesthat we provide to our exchange participants.We initiated this year an experience basedlocal preparation seminar in local chapterthat enabled students to specifically preparefor their volunteering or professionalexpreience already in Switzerland.We have started to create nationalpartnership in South-­‐America and South-­‐EastAsia to ensure long term relationships and tosource easier internship opportunities.Furthermore, a brand new leaflet with afresh design was created in collaborationwith the Communication departmentThe internship programmes in AIESEC inSwitzerlandOver the period of July 2011 June 2012,117 Swiss students took up the opportunityof venturing for an AIESEC internship abroad.As a result of the outstanding performance ofeach local chapter, and constant promotionof South-­‐America and South-­‐East Asiaenabled 46 more students compared to theprevious year. This result was the highestover the last 5 years.OutgoingExchanges22488331233501020304050607080902009-­‐10 2010-­‐11 2011-­‐12GCDPGIPOutgoing Exchangesa fresh design was created in colla-boration with the Communicationdepartment.The internship programmes in AIE-SEC in SwitzerlandOver the period of July 2011 – June2012, 117 Swiss students took upthe opportunity of venturing for anAIESEC internship abroad.As a result of the outstanding per-formance of each local chapter, andconstant promotion of South-Ame-rica and South-East Asia 46 morestudents compared to the previousyear chose to go on an internshipwith AIESEC. This result was thehighest over the last 5 years.The top most popular destinationsof our professional programmeswere: India, China, Indonesia, Rus-sian Federation and other Europeancountries such as Czech Republic,Germany and Japan.Our volunteers participated in va-rious social projects and explorednew cities mostly in Brazil, India, Chi-na and Mauritius. This year the Afri-can countries such as Tanzania andNigeria became very appealing too.The majority of internships partici-pants left over summer and for nolonger than 6 weeks.Focus and StrategiesTo drive the growth of our organiza-tion, in the term 2011-12 AIESEC inSwitzerland set three national prio-rities to enable more Swiss studentsto go for more internships: QualityManagement, Country Specific Rec-ruitment, and Student Marketing.We were successful in creating newstudent contracts, in which we spe-cified the services that we provide toour exchange participants to incre-ase customer satisfaction throughclear expectation setting.

  15. 15. Incoming ExchangesIn this term AIESEC in Switzerlandfacilitated 48 internships betweenSwiss companies and internationalstudents.As it can be seen from the secondgraph, we have succeeded in over-achieving previous term’s results inQ1 by 18 %.Despite putting a strong focus onstrengthening local sales activities,these year’s results were by 11% lo-wer than achievements of previousteam in the term 2010/11.This department is absolutely vital inorder to keep realizing AIESEC’s visi-on of bringing different nationalitiestogether through enabling studentsand recent graduates to live andwork in a foreign country and thusgain valuable life experience. This isonly possible thanks to establishedcooperation between AIESEC anddifferent types of enterprises acrossvarious industries. This cooperationis of high importance to us hence itis a proof of AIESEC’s relevance toexternal environment. From this re-ason we aim to build only win-winpartnerships, which bring added va-lue to both sides.These graphs depict internships,which started in 2011/12 as well astheir distribution over quarters inwhich the interns took up their em-ployment.Daniela Zatloukalova, VicePresident of Incoming ExchangeThese graphs depict internships, whichstarted in 2011/12 as well as distributionover quarters in which the interns took uptheir employment.In the term 2011/12 AIESEC in Switzerlandfacilitated 48 internships of internationalstudents in Swiss companies. Despite puttinga strong focus on strengthening local salesactivities, these results ended in adecline of 11% in comparison to year2010/11.

  16. 16. As we witnessed in our term, buil-ding up a strong local sales depart-ments is an ambitious, long-termgoal, which requires more than oneyear to be accomplished. By provi-ding intense national coaching tolocal entities and advanced trainingssupported by our key partners, webelieve that we made the first im-portant step to accomplish long-term growth of local sales depart-ments.Thanks to easier visa and work per-mit processes with members of theEU, it is not surprising that 67% ofour interns come from the EU. Mostof our interns come from EasternEurope, which is 31% from total, outof which 47% are Polish and 27% areHungarian.As you can see from the graphbelow, 21% of our interns are em-ployed in the FMCG sector, 22% in ITand 17% in the banking sector.
  17. 17. Career Daysaverage of 300 students visited theCareer Fair in each location. Eventhough it was very challenging be-cause of the increasing amount ofcompetitors and the decreasing in-vestment from companies’ side, theoverall results of the 2012 editionwere very similar to the ones of theprevious year.The 2011-2012 term was a turningpoint for the AIESEC Career Days, thefuture of the project and its meaningwithin the organization.A new vision for Career Days was de-veloped, with integration betweenAIESEC and Career Days. This termCareer Days was aligned to the goalsof AIESEC as never before, connec-ting the project with our BHAG (BigHairy Audacious Goal), with OutgoingExchanges and Incoming Exchanges.Additionally, the value propositionof Career Days was developed. Withthis development, every stakeholderwill have clear since the beginningAIESEC Career Days is the biggestproject that AIESEC in Switzerlanddevelops, allowing the organizationto enable project management andproject execution experiences to itsmembers. Additionally, it is one ofthe main ways in which AIESEC inSwitzerland interacts with the corpo-rate sector, and the biggest opportu-nity to showcase our activities andimpact tothe different stakeholders.The 2012 edition of AIESEC CareerDays took place in 6 of the 8 univer-sities where AIESEC is present (Basel,Bern, Fribourg, Geneva, Lausanne,and Zurich) and had the participa-tion of over 60 partners, with themembers of the National SupportGroup like PwC, Credit Suisse, Ernst &Young, Deloitte, UBS, KPMG, the Bun-desverwaltung, and the Swiss Natio-nal Bank being the major partners ofthe events. In total, more than 2500students registered for the eventsand created their personal profile onthe careeerdays.ch website, and an
  18. 18. the added value it will receive withits participation.Another relevantchange that Career Days achievedduring this term was the develop-ment of a new website, and a newcommunications and social mediastrategy. With these tools, the im-pact that the project can have mayincrease dramatically, as the reachthat it will gain will be much biggerthan it istoday.The most important achievement ofthe term was the development of 6local managers who gained an inva-luable project management expe-rience while still in university, withthe corresponding leadership skillslearned during the development ofthe project. Each one of them ledteams of between 5 and 10 mem-bers, generating impact in the livesof over 40 AIESEC members who gai-ned experience in project planningand execution. This is at the end ofthe day, the reason for which AIESECdoes this kind of projects, to changein a relevant way the lives of people,starting by our own members.Gustavo Santamaria, AIESECSwiss Career DaysAssociation President
  19. 19. Communication andBusiness DevelopmentBusiness development in order tomake communications an integra-ted part of our external engagementand align our activities on the corpo-rate and the student market.New promotion material for Out-going Exchange programmesAs a common project of the Outgo-ing Exchange and Communicationdepartment new promotion ma-terials were designed. Due to thefact that the exchange programmegot split into two different ones onglobal level within the frameworkof the AIESEC 2015 midterm ambi-tion AIESEC now is attracting diffe-rent target groups for the differentprogrammes – professional intern-ships and volunteering experiences.Based on this change the focus onproduct packaging was intensified,what reflected in the developmentof new marketing materials.New promotional stand for eventsAs one of the most expensive in-vestments in the term 2011/12 awell-designed stand replaced theone that was used until December2011. A change in colour coding anda more appealing design will help AI-ESEC in Switzerland to be more visi-ble on the own events such as Care-er Days and during the recruitmentperiod.Online visibilityA big project of the national teamwas to adapt the homepage of AI-ESEC in Switzerland to the chan-ged needs. The reshaping of theAIESEC experience made extensivechanges of our web appearance onwww.aiesec.ch necessary. Further-more, a more transparent and logicalstructure was applied what led to in-creased time spent on our webpage.The structure change also brought aCommunication asafunctional areaIn the last years the competition ofAIESEC´s exchange programmes in-creased. More and more organiza-tions offer the opportunity to travelor work abroad to the students mar-ket. At the same time the reducedtime availability of Swiss studentsmade them more and more selecti-ve in choosing the right organizationfor their volunteering experience. Tostand out and to increase our visibili-ty, AIESEC in Switzerland introducedCommunication as a functional areain the term 2011/12.

Aslight change in the language useon our webpage contributes now aswell to attract both, students andcompany representatives.For our Facebook page the commu-nication strategy changed dramati-cally. While it used to be a channelto interact with members and AIE-SEC members all around the world,it was transformed to a platform tointeract with students and informthem about the programmes AIESECis offering to the student market.This shift from internal to externalcommunication also made this com-munication channel more appealingfor our partners what led to the factthat our Facebook page got addedto our partners portfolio. Studentrelevant content allowed us to rai-se the number of likes from around2200 to close to 5000.Sales Academy powered by HaysThe Sales Academy got introducedon “Do It” conference in October2011. With Hays (Schweiz) AG, theleading recruitment expert, we wona partner with sales competencewho trained our members in theIncoming Exchanges department.The programme was comprised ofa series of workshops accompaniedwith practical sales activities. AIE-SEC in Switzerland reached 32 mem-bers with this programme. The sixsuccessful participants who wentthrough the whole programme re-ceived a certificate after the finalworkshop on “Kick Off” conferencein April.Reshaping the National SupportGroup (NSG)Satisfaction of our partners has al-ways been a key priority of AIESECin Switzerland. In order to make tho-se partnerships within the NSG evenmore valuable for both sides, thenational team developed a new mo-del of partners´ engagement in theactivities of AIESEC. Key differenceof this model in comparison to theprevious one is the possibility forour partners to choose one focus ofmutual cooperation, which enablesthem to customize their involvementaccording to their needs. Partnerscan now choose from three diffe-rent areas of cooperation: Internati-onal Talents, Talent Interaction andEmployer Branding. Each focus areaprovides access to young talents(national and international) throughvarious events, activities and online& social media. All in all, this engage-ment is a perfect solution to attracthigh potential talents from variousbackgrounds and cultures.Stephan Kropf, Vice President ofCommunications & BD
  21. 21. Financial ReportFinance in AIESEC Switzerland wasrelatively successful in the year 2011– 2012. We recorded major succes-ses and also experienced challengesin the area of revenue generation.We started the year focused onenabling AIESEC Switzerland achie-ve financial sustainability which wasgoing to be driven by developing anew financially sustainable financi-al model. In analyzing the 2011/12term financial performance, AIESECSwitzerland finished the term withan unaudited surplus of CHF 36,514.65 providing the organizationwith a cushion and a launching padto achieving a level of financial sus-tainability. We all agreed (MC andLC’s) that the current model had tobe changed if we wanted to guaran-tee a financially sustainable AIESECSwitzerland; we were able to bringall stakeholders together to work onit and we achieved a huge amountof success.RevenueThe three biggest sources of revenuefor AIESEC Switzerland are LC fees,NSG fees and contributions from Ca-reer day. The membership fees arepaid in return for services providedto the LC’s from the MC which to-taled CHF 86,819.26 and NSG feeswhich are sponsorships from corpo-rate partners totaled CHF 58,500.We lost 2 partners during the termand worked hard to get new part-ners signed achieving a promisingprogress in negotiation with poten-tial partners. We recorded a slightincrease in revenue generated fromLC fees, exchanges and Career daycontribution and lost revenue fromNSG, conference sales and the riskof reduced contribution from care-er days in the future. Careers day isworking hard to regain lost groundby signing up new partners whichwouldhelpboosttheearningspowerof AIESEC Switzerland in the future.Ofonime Ita, Vice Presi-dent of Finances
  22. 22. achieve financial sustainability in thenext few years if implemented. Thefinal decision on its adoption andimplementation was yet to be ta-ken by the LCP’s as at the end of theterm but became a priority for thenew team. We also recorded a 50%increase in BSV (government grant)thereby creating a huge income thanplanned for the new team.ChallengesIn the finance department, we wereunable to get the external audit ofprevious years of LC Lausanne andLC Lugano completed. The MC ex-periences a lack of steady cash flowwhich holds the risk of non-paymentof bills as at when due of which inour opinion is unhealthy for AIS. Wehighly recommend a quick build upof the reserve of the MC to enab-le her handle such risk or providea fund that is solely established forthe efficient management of all cashflow challenges the MC currentlyfaces.ExpenditureExpenditure during the term stoodfairly within planned figures. Weoperated a very lean budget whichmeant that some quality serviceshad to be cut back on to enable usoperate. Though we spent on whatwas most needed, we recommendthat the services which we had tocut back on which included invest-ment in the middle tier managementof the organization are very impor-tant in building a leadership pipelinefor the organization. Also, we wouldhave loved to invest a lot more onconference delivery since we belie-ve greatly contributes to developingour members which is core to ourexistence. We highly recommend ahigher investment in the core areasof AIESEC in the future.SuccessesDuring the term, we successful-ly created the financial model thatwould enable AIESEC SwitzerlandASCDA (AIESEC SwissCareer Days Association)
  23. 23. The major focuses of AIESEC Ba-sel for the term 11/12 were tostrengthen our outgoing exchangedelivery in both quantity & quality,to establish a strong sales culturewithin our membership as well asensuring the continuity of our talentmanagement processes. In order toprovide our members with a betterexperience & to connect them witha more global environment of AIE-SEC we hosted two CEED positionsduring the first half of our term,working as part of the ExecutiveBoard managing the areas of talentmanagement & recruitment. BothLiseth (Venezuela) and Nastea (Mol-dova) were great additions to the Lo-cal Committee, achieving one of thestrongest recruitments of the lastyears in our LC as well as the high-est member retention rate withinthe country. One of the additionalhighlights of the fall semester wasour Event“ Global View – The Futurein our Hands” including workshops,a volunteer fair withover 20 organi-zations, lectures & discussions with24 speakers, a photo exhibition, aconcert, a film evening, several or-ganic cocktails plus an internationalevening with food from around theworld. All events were built aroundthe topics of sustainability, society &consumption. Bringing together stu-dents, governmental-, corporate- &academic representatives to discuss,educate and evaluate today’s socialproblems and responsibilities wasone of the main successes of theevent. Although the first half of theterm seemed to have a lot more sig-nificance in working with our mem-bers and non-corporate sector, thesecond half of the term became a lotmore externally focused.Hosting second Career Days sinceit has been re-established on locallevel was the biggest project duringthe spring semester. With many hel-ping hands and lotsof support from theWWZ we were ableto present 23 diffe-rent companies andorganizations fromvarious sectors and their opportu-nities to the students of the Uni-versity of Basel. At the same timewe managed to build up a greatconnection and partnership to-gether with the Handelskammerbeider Basel (HKBB), which wassupporting us in our corporatepromotion, Invitations to theirevents and hosted us for one ofour weekly LC Meetings at theiroffice.The closing of the term happenedat the annual summer BBQ. To-gether with alumni & members ofAIESEC in Switzerland we cheris-hed the moments of the 11/12 ge-neration, honored our most out-standing members & handed overour legacy to our successors whowill represent the 50th generationof LC Basel.“Leading the term 2011/12 of LCBasel was one of the biggest chal-lenges & at the same time greatesthonors we could have asked for. St-arting the term with only half of theEB team elected, acquiring our ownunique leadership style in all – girlsteam & closing It with nine impactfulEB experiences delivered will alwaysbe the most memorable moments ofthis year. Throughout the term our LCbecame a stronger entity. We wereable to integrate our members bet-ter in to our activities, to grow ourvisibility & to guarantee satisfactionof ourcustomers & stake -holders. Allthis was made possible due to thehard work & dedication of every in-dividual in our LC.”Theresia Schneider, LCPLC BASEL
  24. 24. As the EB of LC Bern we had threegoals for the term 2011/12.Our guiding principle as the leadingbody of our LC was to be an open,transparent, sustainable and equalteam and which is perceived as suchby the LC.Secondly, for our members we wantedto create a platform to be proactiveand encourage others to be proactive.And last but not least we had the fol-lowing goal for the relationship withour external environment. By the endof the term we wanted to have estab-lished a positive image at University inall Faculties and make students awareof their possibilities with/in AIESEC.By leading through example, creatingnew projects for our members to be-come active in and by applying chan-ges to our marketing campaigns andshowing more presence on campus(for example with a Global Village)we have in my opinion achieved thosethree goals.OonaGemschLocalCommitteePresident2011/12been neglected. We managed to create a team and there wereseveral internal and external workshops and trainings, whichequipped those members with important functional know-ledge and skills. Furthermore, the relationship with the uni-versity was improved and a new Local Support Group contractwas drawn up in order to better suit their different needs.LC Bern furthermore, brought their financial situation in orderand passed the external audit in Summer 2011 and the onein Summer 2012. Another improvement was the Alumni rela-tions of LC Bern. A part of our Alumni attended our ChristmasDinner and we as well had a weekly meeting dedicated to theAlumni to bring them closer to the members of AIESEC in Bern.The Outgoing Exchange numbers improved and the targetof sending 16 Exchange Participants on an internship wasreached. Also the promotion was improved by having a targe-ted promotion (Global Internship Program and Global Commu-nity Development Program separated) and the Global Villageas a promotion platform. Furthermore, the Exchange Prepa-ration Seminar was greatly improved which prepared the Ex-change Participants better for their internships abroad.LC BERNFor the term 2011-2012 AIESEC in Bern had thefollowing three focus areas: Involvement andEfficiency of Members; Image of the Local Com-mittee of Bern (LC Bern) at the University and tobuild up the Incoming Exchange Functional Area.For the first focus area we set ourselves thefollowing goal: Create a platform for proactivemembers and encourage others to be proacti-ve. We created an atmosphere of proactivity andmotivation as well as more opportunities for ourmembers. In addition, the Talent Managementprocesses were also improved. For the recruit-ment the interview guides were specialized to al-ready aid the selection and allocation into teams.To improve the working environment each mem-ber received an improved job description andmember talks were offered to give the membersthe opportunity to give feedback to their teambut also the Executive Board.The second focus area had the goal: We haveestablished a positive image at University in allFaculties and make students aware of their possi-bilities with/in AIESEC. The Global Village, whichtook place in May 2012, was implemented as aproject to improve the image of AIESEC in Berntowards the students, as well as to use it as apromotion platform for the Outgoing Exchangerecruitment. Furthermore several Movie Nightswere organized to show the students what AIE-SEC is all about.The third focus area was Incoming Exchange, be-cause this Functional Area was newly created inLC Bern and External Relations had previously
  25. 25. Before the beginning of the term11/12, local committee (LC) Fribourgwas not one of the most performingones. So for the new elected exe-cutive board (EB) 11/12 the mostimportant was to build up a perfor-mance culture in this LC. The teamsas well as the whole LCs met weekly.Short as well as long-term objecti-ves were fixed with each and everymember. The introduction of a per-formance tracking system helped tochange the member’s attitudes froma party-performing LC to a perfor-ming one.Our efforts were first visible in themember recruitment numbers butas well in the rising numbers of ex-change participants. The conductionof several events during the runningsemesters like Global Villages, work-shops, a party and international din-ners helped to present our new cul-ture to non-AIESEC-members and togain their trust in our services back.But not only this, these events madethe LC get even closer and our mem-bers more committed.The biggest project of LC Fribourg11/12 were the Career Days. Themix of workshops held by differentcompanies and the career fair werea possibility for many students to ex-plore the corporate world.Looking back now, and seeing LC Fri-bourg perform in the term 12/13,we can say that our term 11/12was very successful in changing ourmember’s attitudes towards perfor-mance. The current EB are the mem-bers recruited and formed in thistransition period, but are part of anew generation, which can be seenin the LC’s current performances.We, the EB 11/12, are proud to haveleaded such a potential LC and itsawesome members. We wish LC Fri-bourg all the best for the next yearahead.At the beginning of our term we hadone big goal: To become a perfor-ming LC.Being at conferences as a memberand feeling sad that LC Fribourg isnever winning an award, made mewant to change some things. Westarted with having LC meeting onregular basis and weekly functionalmeeting. We organized more events,were planning more and made surethat every member knew their tasks.So more and more we grew into aperformance culture. For me, themeaning of AIESEC has always been,take and make the most out of it. Wedid that! I am thankful and proud ofmy EB team 2011/2012.LC FRIBOURG
  26. 26. all of our members went to Fish andLeysin to enjoy the incomparable ex-perience of a NatCo and came backhighly motivated and enthusiastic.Regarding projects, it was the firstyear that we implemented CareerDays in November in order to avoidcompetition. We had 3 days of fair,with workshops, company presenta-tions and company stands.Our vice-president of external rela-tions arranged 3 radio appearancesto promote our LC, our exchangeprogram and our upcoming projects.We worked with 3 other associa-tions on a project called “la semainede l’entrepreunariat” (Entrepreneur-ship week). It was one of the high-lights of the student life this year. Itwas so successful that it was plan-ned to be organized again it the nextDuring the term 11/12 we heldtheusualactivitiesforourmem-bers as LCMs, internal work-shops, external workshops, ge-neral assemblies, alumni visits,social meet-ups, and of coursethe possibility of going in the 2national conferences. Almostyear. The collaboration we startedduring this term helped get a stron-ger visibility in the University and thecontact we created with those otherassociations made us discover otherperceptions and conceptions of thestudent life. This also encouraged uson developing new projects with dif-ferent student associations.We also had our city tour, called“Geneva on Fire”. For the first timein year, it lasted 2 days and we raisedsponsors to support our event. Itwas a great success, we had delega-ted from almost every LC in Switzer-land, which improved our bond withthe other chapters.Our Global Village took place for the2nd year in the hall of the Universityof Geneva; we held stands display-ing food, music and artifacts of cul-tures all around the world. Our goalwas give the opportunity for stu-dents to discover new cultures andgive them the possibility of gettingmore acquainted with our exchangeprogram.Overall, this term was eventful andfilled with abundant opportunity togrow as a individual and as anorganization.From my LCP point of view, LC Gene-va has achieved a lot during the term11/12. Our focus areas were princi-pally talent management, commu-nication and finances. We focusedalso on structuring our LC and ourexecutive board by implementingmore detailed job descriptions, usingmyaiesc.net more and by applyingthe 2015 guidelines. We grew into awell-structured LC composed of high-ly motivated members. Our recruit-ment strategy was to get the rightpeople in the right places so our LCwas a bit smaller but more efficientand dynamic. We took pride in deve-loping the potential of our members,and taking them on a journey I hopethey will never forget.LC GENEVA
  27. 27. The biggest challenges in this termwere castling within the ExecutiveBoard (EB) and the resignation ofour VP for Talent Management. Theway how we managed to keep thelocal committee at a high level wasthat we had a passionate, commit-ted and strong EB team. A forsightfulstrategy kept the the team togetherand the reallocation of responsibi-lities led to a high performing termand an inspiring generation.Out of these circumstances at thebeginning of our term we learnedthat a strong pipeline is really impor-tant and we put a lot of our effort toprovide a good transition with a lotof practical content with a focus onthe values of AIESEC . We can nowstrongly confirm that the ExecutiveBoard of AIESEC Lausanne this yearis well prepared to deliver our pro-mises towards our stakeholders.It is really important to have a goodplan of the budget which was notour case due to lack of knowledge.We still managed to finish our termwith a balanced budget, which wasreally good taking into considerati-on that nobody really looked deeplyinto our expenses. We tried as wellto have a lot of innovative thinkingduring this year with some greatideas like EB newsletters coming upnearly every week improving the in-ternal communication a lot.Every week we had a local commit-tee (LC) activity and at least biweek-ly LC Meetings with an attendance ofabout 30 members each. The typeof activities were trainings, informa-tion events, brainstorming, bondingactivities, presentations done bymembers and the EB, BBQs, bowlingcompetitions, dinners, Apéros orother events.The AIESEC core activities Incomingand Outgoing Exchange were stron-gly focused on during our term. Forthe first time in years we managedto attract over 150 people to ourinfo events and a big part of themsubscribed on our platform atten-ding at least the Exchange Prepara-tion Seminar. On Incoming Exchangeside, we put our effort into makingcontacts with companies throughnetworking events and it startedstep by step to show its results.As for our other activities we orga-nized our annual events as CareerDays and Global Village. Those twoare the biggest of their kind in AI-ESEC in Switzerland enabling eachyear thousands of students interac-ting with companies at the CareerDays Fair or learning about foreigncultures at the Global Village. TheGlobal Village event was even re-implemented in Lausanne and theother committees started to do thesame at their universities.Our investment into the opening ofAIESEC in Albania as an expansionmakes us proud since we can impactmore people indirectly.All our effort was recognized duringthe National Conferences where wereceived two awards, the one for“The most progressive LC” and the“Inspiring Generation Recognition”.To sum up, we are sure that AIESECLausanne will continue to keep thevision of one AIESEC in Switzerlandand will contribute to the growth ofthe country, cooperating both withthe national level and other localentities.LC LAUSANNE
  28. 28. This was a very difficult term andone that was not without its issues,ranging from legal to financial andoperational concerns that almostsaw the closure of the local commit-tee. I can say that we did not accom-plish what we had hoped to createfor the organization, but that I admi-re the hard work and dedication ofthe Executive Board in staying thecourse and working through verygrave scenarios. Ultimately we wereable to transition toward a more sus-tainable period and one that a newterm and governing body could moreeffectively lead.Local Committee President 11|12Jeffrey SweeneyAIESEC Lugano’s 11|12 term markeda large period of transition of the lo-cal committee. The term began un-der a new operating cycle from theprevious term, having adapted to anew timeline to converge toward theMember Committee. Its focus are-as were in restarting the exchangeprocesses and increasing progressin our core products, namely ourmembership and exchange.In terms of membership, AIESECLugano struggled keeping a stablemembership body after having twoExecutive Board members steppingdown from their positions and dif-ficulty bringing members to confe-rence with a different LC timelinethan the rest of Switzerland.For exchange, our ICX saw the firstpotential raise and results after aprevious term of no results and nosuccess, restarting the core proces-ses from scratch. Despite having ourVice President of Outgoing Exchangestep down from her position, AIE-SEC Lugano restarted its exchangeprogram under the new brandingof AIESEC global initiative 2015 andwas able to send several studentsabroad; however, results were muchlower than expected, citing issueswith HR management and a poorrecruitment at the Swiss-Italian uni-versity (USI).After several years of issues arriving,this term did manage to effectivelyconsolidate its operations towardfocusing on the core university ofUSI and closing operations at Frank-lin College beyond passive recruit-ment and OGX operations, effec-tively allowing the future terms tofocus more intently and be natio-nally aligned toward the rest of AIE-SEC Switzerland.LC LUGANO
  29. 29. Established in the year 1951, the Lo-cal Committee St. Gallen celebratedits 60th anniversary at the beginningof the term 2011/2012. In the term11/12, LC St. Gallen showed excep-tional growth in our core businesssector with more than twenty Out-going Exchange Participants and 2Incoming students. For the first timenot only students from the universi-ty but also from the College of Edu-cation in St. Gallen were targeted tobe part of our exchange programs.In the field of Talent Managementwe had an average of 45 highly moti-vated members over the whole year.Beside the support with the promo-tion of our membership and intern-ship program, the Communicationdepartment managed the alumnirelations, which included severalevents like the Alumni Event at theHub Zurich. Thanks to the carefuland sustainable work of our Financedepartment, the LC could show aprofit at the end of the term.Over the year, LC St. Gallen offeredmany folded and interesting pro-jects. In autumn 2011, we organizedthe public sector career fair GoBey-ond, with partners such as WTO andthe Swiss Federation, and the con-ference about emerging marketsEmerge with nearly 100 internatio-nal and local participants. In the se-cond half of the term, we organizedan amazing Global Village at our uni-versity and we were part of the HSGTalents Career Fair and the HSG Ban-king Days.Being a student organization in oneof the most competitive universitiesof Switzerland we aspire to not onlysustain our present growth, but alsooutclass every other student organi-zation in the coming years. AIESECdeems to enhance its universal andmultidimensional spirit and with thepresent rate of growth, we are de-termined to be one of the most pro-gressive and innovative local chap-ters in Switzerland.Since the beginning of my term asthe Local Committee President insummer 2011, AIESEC St. Gallen hasdeveloped in so many great and un-expected ways. While some of ourprojects were struggling, others ex-ceeded our expectations by far andreally contributed to an enduringadvancement of the image of ourorganization among the studentsof our university and the projects’supporting partners. I’m very gladto have been part of this experienceand I’m confident that our succes-sors in the Executive Board will doan even more amazing job at pro-moting the AIESEC values and ourvision at University of St. Gallen.Grateful for the experience,Lisa ZügerLCP AIESEC St. Gallen 11/12LC ST.GALLEN
  30. 30. The executive board 2011/12 is proudly looking backon a majorly successful term.While continuously being accountable for the largestshare of the national core product delivery, we not onlymanifested our positioning as one of the operationalpillars of AIESEC in Switzerland; we also developed anew ownership feeling regarding the education of andknowledge exchange with our peers, further promo-ting the idea of ‘One AIESEC in Switzerland!’With a higher focus on sustainability management andsynergies, we look with enthusiasm into a bright future.LC ZURICH
