  2. 2. Exchange Statistics AIESEC Denmark Q1 Exchange Performance: Continuing the growth trend from last two quarter, we reg- 30 istered a growth of 37% in Q1 2009, compared to the same quar- 24 25 ter last year. However despite the efforts LC’s haven’t seen a consider- 20 able amount of result. 15 11 11 The overall performance at the Local level in terms of num- Raises 8 10 ber raises has been quite poor and way below the average. 5 4 Though we have already achieved a 35% growth compared 5 to last year with one full quarter to go, there still a lot of room 0 for improvement both at the National and Local level. Q1 2007 Q1 2008 Q1 2009 The increasing alumni involvement at the local level is quite promising and expects to bring in some good results in near future. Congratulations to AIESEC CBS and AIESEC SDU for keeping up the upward trend and con- tributing to the organizational results. Current quarter has been the worst compared to the last two. Despite some efforts none of the LC has been able to achieve any substantial result. The current exchange pipeline look quite poor, with no matches on the system to be real- ized in next quarter. With poor results from AAU, UNI and ASB, it is most likely that we fall short of our annual X targets. The MC 0809 DO Bees want to thank you for a wonderful conference, FOR- TIUS 2009!!! Thank you Jonas (Chair), Faci, OC & OCP, Conference Manager, LCP’s, EB’s, Alumni, members, all delegates for all that you’ve put into the conference in order to make it a success!!!! There's little to be said about FORTIUS for the ones who were there and too much for the ones who were not. For me as a conference manager and for my MC team, FORTIUS was a dream come true. It was a successful conference not only through the sessions delivered, externals present, alumni involvement and extremely quality oriented and hard working OC, but also thanks to the delegate spirit and involvement. Without them, all the work put in by the other parties would have been in vain, so it's them I want to thank for making this such an amazing conference, spar- kling of passion, enthusiasm, sugar, spice and all things nice! :) Letzu, FORTIUS 2009 conference manager

  4. 4. AIESEC, a bit more… just for you! AIESEC Structure AIESEC is an organization present in 107 countries and territories. Each country has a certain number of Local Committees (LC). Each LC has an Executive Board (EB) composed of a president (LCP) and vice presidents (LCVP). The LC’s are coordinates nationally by the member committee (MC), with the same structure: president (MCP) and vice presidents (MCVP). So, there are 107 MC’s and MCP’s in AIESEC globally. All this countries are internationally coordinated by a team called AIESEC International team, composed of the president of AIESEC International (PAI) and vice presidents (AIVP). To be able to be more relevant, the countries around the Globe were grouped in regions with similar external environment and internal reality in order to be able to create more specific and region-based strategies. These regions are called Growth Networks (GN) and they are: Africa, Asia -Pacific (AP), Central and Easter Europe (CEE), Ibero America (IGN), Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and Western Europe and North America (WENA). Each GN has a Director, part of the AI team, that is the small region president, responsible (together with the MCP’s) for the GN strategy creation and implemen- tation. Denmark is part of WENA GN! There are two big international conferences where all 107 countries meet: 1. In January each year, International Presidents Meeting (IPM) takes place. All the MCP’s partici- pate to this forum in which: the new AI team is elected, the Global Plan is created and knowledge for the new MCP’s is delivered by the current AI team. 2. In August we have International Congress (IC), the biggest AIESEC Conference each year. Here the MC’s and the LCP’s get together to create the global strategies and to establish country partner- ships. Also, the new AI team takes over and knowledge is delivered to the new MC’s and LCP’s. This year (2009), your current MCP, Abhijit and your elect MCP, Teodora, took part in IPM in Rome, Italy. Here, Denmark represented by them, voted for the new PAI and also gave the confidence vote for the Director’s candidates. Also, they took part in the creation of the International Priorities for AIESEC 0910, the new strategic map, and also estab- lished the WENA GN focus areas. As IPM is an international legislative forum, the new budget for the AI team 0910 was approved, new expansion initiatives were voted for (Mozambique, Saudi Arabia and Mongolia) and also the changes in the International Compendium and regu- lations were made. Another thing that hap- pened was the launch of the new communication strategy: AIESEC new website, AIESEC launch on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Flickr. Check the “Telling the story 2.0” wiki and for more details! IC 2009 will happen in Malaysia, and AIESEC Denmark is allowed to send 5 delegates to the conference (MC members or LCP’s). If you want to go, let me know! For any questions regarding IPM or IC or global news, contact me! Dare to DREAM!
