These intense few days with the very diverse and energized group of AIESECers in Budapest and Tapolca were quite an experience for all of us, and our time together was an important new milestone in our alumni reform effort. While the clear message back from the alumni community gathered in Hungary after presenting and discussing our work was to “go make it happen,” we also benefited from important new perspectives that will lead to further evaluations and some course adjustments. This is a natural and welcome part of the process and will make our bonds even stronger and our collective impact even greater.
We are nailing down our immediate next steps coming out of Hungary, but please know they will most importantly feature your active engagement. We are excited to expand the number of alumni working on unleashing our alumni potential and to increase our consultations with the national associations and other interested alumni. We will report back to you soon with the specific areas where we are seeking your involvement and help. Please let us know your interests and skill sets, and we’ll see how we might efficiently get you actively engaged.
I want to take this opportunity to thank our working group, steering committee and participating alumni everywhere for your patience and hard work over the past several months. I think it’s paying off. We are on our way.
Let’s continue working together to realize our potential!
With sincere thanks,
