Access to Congress
In line with Article 4 of the AAI Statutes, participation in Congress is limited to AAI Members who have submitted their membership application form and have paid their 2015 membership fee, which can be done by visiting http://aiesec-alumni.org/membership/
AAI members are able to vote for the Executive Board members and for other resolutions, either physically during Congress, or electronically or by correspondence, whether they are at the Congress, or not. You can only choose one option. In case you decide for Electronic Voting or for Correspondence Voting, you have to accept that in case a motion is changed, your vote will be not valid anymore.
Members who are not able to attend Congress in Ofir may also give a proxy to another Member who will attend Congress (see articles 5.6. and 8.3. of the AAI Statutes). Please fill in and sign the proxy voting form in order for your voice to be heard and your proxy vote to be accepted. This document will have to be remitted to the Chair at the opening of the legislative part of Congress, on April 11, 2015. For the good order, please also inform the Polling Officer Oliver Carr via email at that you have granted a proxy for the Ofir Congress and to whom. The second polling officer will be elected by the general assembly and get a short introduction on the spot.
Members who cannot attend Congress in Ofir may also vote online. In order to do this, you need to register with the Polling Officer, Oliver Carr, by writing an email to: , asking to vote online. The Polling Officer will then send you a personalized link to an online survey, where you can submit your vote. These links will be sent out by 22 March 2015 to all members who have registered up until that point. Members registering after that time will be sent their links at the soonest opportunity after receiving the request.
Note that your votes will not be completely anonymous, as the Polling Officer will be able to track the votes back to the individual registered. He is however duty-bound to keep this a secret from all other people.
In respect to privacy issues, AAI provides one further an alternative way to vote – if you wish, please contact for a ballot form to be returned by email. This form then needs to be filled out, scanned, and sent back by email to the address on the Correspondence Voting form.
In 2015, the ballot for voting both by electronic means and by correspondence will close at 23.59 pm, CEST (Brussels time, UTC + 2:00), on April 9, 2015. The final decision of the election results and votes on other issues resides in the General Assembly of the AAI Congress and reflects [i.e., is determined by] the votes cast by the members [i.e., the totals of all votes cast by electronic means, by correspondence, and in person].
In accordance with Article 5.8 of the Association’s statutes, we inform you about the publication of the Minutes of the Mexico Meeting of March 2014 and the standing orders as approved in Mexico.
In case of questions, we encourage you to send them to prior to the legislative session to provide necessary information and to ensure a most effective meeting.
We have a great deal to accomplish together as an organization next month in Portugal as we advance our efforts to unleash AIESEC’s global alumni potential and to progress the AAI Transformation Project.
We look forward to your participation, electronically, by correspondence or proxy, or in person in Portugal!
