  2. 2. AIESEC ALUMNI OF THE WORLD UNITE Unleashing our Global Alumni Potential Jean Choplin, a founder of AIESEC, calls AIESEC’s global alumni efforts “the sleeping giant”. Given our large numbers, our experience and skills, and the bonds of passion, trust and practical idealism that unite us, it’s easy to see the enormous potential of a fully mobilized global AIESEC alumni community. AIESEC alumni have achieved a great deal over the decades in many countries around the world, but our global efforts have been fragmented and have lacked a shared vision. The time has come to forge a united way forward, supported by a clear and compelling global alumni vision and a time-phased plan that will transform it into reality. Under the auspices of AIESEC Alumni International and AIESEC International, alumni from across the globe are joining together to launch a unified planning effort that will make this happen. We are working step-by-step to take stock of our past and our present efforts and to gain clarity on our mission our platforms and services, our membership and funding model, our networking media, and more. We aim to reach an actionable consensus our blueprint and implementation by February 2012 and the AAI meeting in Hungary that will coincide with International Presidents Meeting. Please come to the project’s blog, AIESEC Alumni of the World Unite, to learn more and to join the case. If you are energised by what you see, please “like us” on Facebook and show your support to get the word out and increase participation. Help us fully unleash the global potential of as many as one million AIESEC alumni worldwide.
