Being an LCP I can set in the Media Market these guidelines and set an example for members. Also communication from the president of the local body needs to be there often in order to make sure that the LC is represented in the best possible manner in all forums. My network of conferences and previous experiences in delivering sessions enable me to get more chances to represent AIESEC externally and thus showcase the initiatives of our Local Chapter.Global Visited Finland on My global experience and especially theExperience AIESEC exchange and AIESEC Global experience help me CEED at AIESEC NUS, understand the values of the Singapore organization from an International Perspective and drive the feeling of AIESECs immense benefits in the members. I have lived varied AIESEC Experiences abroad and have taken learning from it to ensure that we live by the Global AIESEC values and are always driven to create Global Impact. As LCP I feel that I can convince people on taking more leadership and exchange roles (X+L) as I myself have lived that experience and have reaped its benefits. 10 AIESEC in IIT KGP, India
  12. 12. Application for President of AIESEC in IIT KGP 2011Team VP Communications I wanted to have a big team forManagement communications because I felt the need to create more leaders and also I had enough job roles. As a Vice President I experimented with my leadership style all throughout the year and was able to keep my team together and motivate them all. I believe in setting examples and also in leading my feedback and motivation. This kind of leadership has helped me in ensuring that all my members were satisfied with the job roles and were active for a major point of time in their AIESEC journey. Membership will be our biggest strength in coming years and I feel that We need to focus on producing leaders who live by the AIESEC values and implement them in their life to get more benefits in any sector they are working. The culture of participating actively in LC discussions, innovation and decisions needs to be built apart from the normal fun culture. We need to have more intuitive ways of learning. For an LCP leaderships starts by leading the EB towards the LC Vision and ensuring them that they all are well versed and skilled to drill down the same values into each and every member of the LC which will really bind the whole local chapter together along with people having extensive AIESEC Experience. 11 AIESEC in IIT KGP, India

  14. 14. Application for President of AIESEC in IIT KGP 2011Detailed Questions1. Why have you decided to run for the President of AIESEC in IIT KGP?I joined AIESEC to explore the one side of m called Leadership and to get a Global Team Experience.Right from the beginning I was focussed on getting the maximum from the Organization and learningas much as I can. My Experience at Globe Trekker (our 1st event during SF 09) got me to believe in theopportunities to actually connect with different cultures either by going to different countries or byservicing them in your Local Chapter.My Experience doing CEED at AIESEC NUS was a major milestone in defining where I will go inAIESEC. It was an experience where I lived the AIESEC culture and saw how students like me andimpact lives of thousands around them using a platform called AIESEC. The “WORK HARD PARTYHARDER” culture quickly got me to be emotionally as well as professionally attached to thisorganization. The network, the reception and the friendship bonds that were forged during thatExperience were immense. It was after this experience that I started taking AIESEC very seriously andstarted believing in the values it is governed by.The responsibility of OCP Recruitments 2009 got me into a leadership role in my own local chapter.Designing plans for the future of our Local chapter and the enthusiasm to make it an Independentchapter drove me to work harder and be innovative in this organization. And to my pleasure myinnovation was never suppressed just because of the nature of working of this organization.My AIESEC Internship Experience brought me closer to the organization and motivated me to applyfor the post of Vice President.But the Major reason for applying for the Post of President is the year 2010 where I feel I lived the trueAIESEC leadership, Networking and Learning Experience. Setting goals for this LC, achieving them,being rewarded for our efforts and some really enthusiastic set of individuals in this organizationmotivated me and helped me understand the need to take a higher leadership Experience in thisOrganization. Throughout the year I gained necessary skills , lead various teams, implementedinnovative ideas with my team and networked with some really amazing individuals in this organization.I feel 2011 will be an year of Change. An year when lots of our Dreams will come True. But I feel thatwe need not stop here. 2011 will also mark the start of an era when we will be Officially on theNational Plenary as a separate identity and so will it mark the start of the era when we will be testingout mettle in front of many other more performing entities. This year requires us to startDREAMING BIG and more importantly to convert that DREAM into REALITY.I believe that I take the responsibility of Leading this Local Chapter to Chase down those dreams andBe what we always wanted to become. TRUE PERFECTIONISTS It’ is this belief which compels me to apply for the post of Local Committee President of AIESEC in IIT Kharagpur. 13 AIESEC in IIT KGP, India
  15. 15. Application for President of AIESEC in IIT KGP 20112. Analyse the Exchange Performance of AIESEC in IIT KGP over the past 1.5 Year.Our Exchange Performance has really not been up to the mark. I would critically comment on eachsector: OGX: We need to work on realization. In past 1.5 years we have been able to raise a lot of forms butor realization rate has been way below the expectation mark. This has resulted in a bad experience forthose who raised their forms and also resulted in a lot of Bad branding about our Major Product in theCampus (Exchange). We did a mistake in raising lots of TT/MT EPs for the summer cycle and didn’tfocus on 1st year who comprise of our DT EP pool. Result: Summer cycle was wasted. Decembercycle also looked promising but we were not able to perform as we expected.I believe we have a good 100+ OGX market in our college and we need to target 1st years for DTs alot. Also we need to get ourselves updated with all VISA Issues so that we can communicate the sameto the EPs. Holding an EP Induction seminar is a must for our LC reality and we need to be a bit strictwith those who raised their forms so that they don’t back out. We need to do our Matching part at theearliest and get them all major documents so that EPs can start working on VISA Issues ASAP. It willshow professionalism from our side and will help us win many more prospective students eager toexperience AIESEC Exchange program.Also we need to ensure our members go on Exchange as we can’t ask others to try our product if weOURSELVES don’t endorse it in the first place. Also this practice will help in building healthier LCculture and more educated members with rich AIESEC experience. Especially for an LC where wedon’t get to attend many conferences EXCHANGE is the best way we can gain the maximumAIESEC Experience. Also I feel the raises we have currently and the various partnerships we haveright now need to be utilized at the earliest and to the fullest to that we have a healthy pipeline forSummer 2011 Realizations. We need to focus more on Partnerships as they will drive Exchange growthin the LC and members will also understand the importance of the various Exchange portfolios.Also we need to focus on raising from nearby schools and markets in Ranchi and Jamshedpur and BITMesra.ICX (DT): I believe the Trainee House issue needs to be sorted out and better Trainee Deliverymechanism should be there. We should have constant feedback from trainee and the Organization togive them a better experience and maintain good client relations. Also new projects with NSS, HSSdepartment need to be started. Schools in KGP are still an exploited market and same goes forJamshedpur. We need to start running PBoXs to ensure DT fulfils the minimal Exchange numberneeds. We need to have more DT events to ensure our projects are well prompted and publicized inmedia and we grow our base in nearby markets. We need to run projects for summers as well and needto ensure members live year round experience.ICX(TN): TN raises in December have been good and we need to make sure that we get therealizations done at the earliest. More projects inside the campus need to be started. We can also havePBoXs with various Schools(VGSOM, School of Entrepreneurship, Medical and School of IP&L) toensure TN has good market in KGP itself.Overall on Exchanges we need to be a bit more aggressive about the portfolios and make sure thatmembers also feel the same. The exchange job roles need to be made more interesting and we shouldhave more Exchange based events involving EPs and Trainees and Exchange clients. 14 AIESEC in IIT KGP, India
  16. 16. Application for President of AIESEC in IIT KGP 20113. How important are Finances to a Local Committee? Track the Financial Health of the Local Committee at present.We plan to become an independent Local Chapter this year and we have to make sure that Finances arein place at any given moment of our work. Finance Task force should also look into Budgeting and becritical about spending money judiciously. I believe Exchange money should be spend on core LCfunctions like member developments, conferences and reimbursements. And ER money can directly beused to PBoXs and LC events. ERs jobrole in terms of raising money should also increase so that wehave partners for various processes (travel, promotion, logistics, stationary, externals sessions formembers) this will include a full term ER jobrole and a big responsibility on the ER team.All event budgeting should be done before the launch of any event. We should try to budget theminimum part of the event using the LC money and see it is feasible. Once launched we should bedelivering that minimum part of that event with the LC money in case no funds have been raised forthe same.As a support portfolio Finances need to be taken seriously by all the VPs as well. We should make surethat we always send our Tally details on time and are free of MC fine. Use of should beencouraged and properly taught to finance task force.We need to get an Office by August in Kharagpur4. What is your proposed organisational structure for the year 2011? Provide a brief job description for each portfolio. President Exchange Support Trainors Team 2 VP OGX 1 VP CIM Will consist of Alumni and high performing members. 2 VP DT 1 VP TM Responsible for Taking Training Sessions for members if required. 1 VP TN 2 VP ERJobroles:  VP OGX: One for in-campus EP Raising and University Partnerships another for Jamshedpur and School Expansions.  VP DT: KGP Projects and Exchanges and 2nd for Jamshedpur Tapping  VP TN: Full Market Analysis and growth in TN Sector.  VP CIM: Full promotional and branding related responsibility including proper KM in the LC. 15 AIESEC in IIT KGP, India
  17. 17. Application for President of AIESEC in IIT KGP 2011 Striking Branding, Promotional Partnerships and External Representation of the LC in major forums. Conduction of Branding events.(Also guide and lead teams responsible for Communications jobrole in various projects in the LC)  VP TM: Proper Member Recruitment & Induction, Training for members by Externals, AIESEC Knowledge, X+L pipeline management, Timely performance review of each and every member and Department Rotations. Knowledge partners for LC member training in various personality development traits. RnR  VP ER: LBoA Management and Engagement both Financially and Intellectually in LC activities. Fund Raising throughout the year for various LC activities and new events. Proper endorsements by all corporate partners. (National December Internships for high performing members)  Trainers Team: Will be required for training members in special skills and practices and will directly work with the LCP as an when required.Apart from this all VPs are supposed to have these common Jobroles:  Training of members in all Department related Skills (can also be done in synergy with TM)  Leadership Pipeline Management. Proper Jobrole Allocation for OCPs and proper review and feedback on their performance.  Development of AIESEC Culture in the Department members and making them passionate about their jobroles.  Ensuring participation of members in all LC activities and their performance and activity in GBMs.  Promoting Innovation in their department.5. How many Members are you planning to recruit in 2011? Are you planning to have 2 recruitments? How will you ensure member retention?I believe in a 2 phase recruitment process in each recruitment cycle which should start with pocketrecruitment of a few members and then using then to get more members after the conduction ofEMPOWER and Recruitment Drive. Pocket Recruitments will help us find members with spcefic skillsets (Designing, Web Development, Tally etc) other recruitment can be for members looking to go onExchange or for leadership.Both recruitments should focus on Exchange Raising as a part of them with Feb Recruitment primarilybeing OGX based. Re-integration needs to be focused on as well for growth in X+LMember retention can be attained by switching members periodically in between the Exchange andSupport portfolios so that at the end of the year each member has experience working in 1 Exchangeportfolio and 1 Support Portfolio. Putting non performing members on probation for 2 weeks can be agod way to increase member retention after which still non performing members need to be completelyexpelled from all official AIESEC activities.6. How would you ensure that the events, which have been taken up by AIESEC in IIT KGP, run smoothly and successfully?  Proper Budgeting needs to be done before the launch of any event requiring more than 1k investment.  A promotional plan and target audience and list of promotional Deliverables need to be there before the launch of the event. 16 AIESEC in IIT KGP, India
  18. 18. Application for President of AIESEC in IIT KGP 2011  Agenda, Sponsorship and Promotion teams should be decided at the launch of the event with proper Jobroles to be allotted to them.  All major events involving lengthy agenda need to have a run through a day before.  No event to be launched if it can’t be supported by 30% of LC budget.  Proper usage of BoA for financial Support for various events.  All sponsorship deals need to be strictly dealt with and all deliverables should be met along with recovering the sponsorship amount on time.  All permission related things need to be taken care of before the launch of the event to check its feasibility.  Trainee Participation should be there in all events in some form or the other.  All documents, slides, posters PSDs, Banners related to the event need to be updated on the Event wiki on at the earliest.  Word of mouth and campus wide publicity needs to be in place at least 2 weeks before any major event.  AIESEC way to be included in all events and the agenda should be student friendly and valuable to the audience.  Proper Coverage (Online Streaming, Social Media Update and Competitions, Photos, Videos, Media,) need to be done of every event and it should be compiled to for the Event report in a Maximum of 1 week. To be send to all our different stake holders  Press release to be done on the day of the event.7. University Relations could have been one of the strong points for AIESEC IIT KGP during the year. Do you feel we have used this strength of ours well?I feel University Relations has been the BIGGEST achievement for our Local Chapter in the year2010. Our Brand Image in the university has been established as a socially aware student organizationand we have been helped a lot by our Board Members from University.We have been able to establish ourselves as a TRUSTED, PROFESSIONAL and FAIRorganization and we should continue to take steps to ensure this Brand doesn’t get hampered.In terms of utilization of University Relations I feel we have been greatly benefitted by getting freeroom in VGSOM to conduct meetings, DOSA endorsements, support for VG, attendance for IC 2010and immense support from the professors. I feel we need to do more Institute impacting things toensure this Brand value doesn’t go down.8. What are your opinions on the current LBOA? What are your plans for the same?I believe except for the Board members in the University our current LBoA has hardly been of anyusage to us. I suggest a proper review of all their support and the formation of a new LBoA wthinactive board member removed.We should add more faculty person in the Board and some financially well of people from ourJamshedpur Market. It will give a lot of strength to our board structure.I feel the LBoA should be divided into the groups like Intellectual Support Groups (includinguniversity profs, DOSA etc.), Financial Support Group (people who can support the LC financially orInkind support in terms of Branding, Logistics, Media Releases), Exchange Support group(Organization heads who can take interns from us : like school principle from Jam etc.) 17 AIESEC in IIT KGP, India
