Access to Congress
In line with Article 4 of the AAI Statutes, voting at Congress is limited to AAI Members who have submitted their membership application form and have paid their 2018 membership fee, which can be done by visiting www.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 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 Hurghada 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 attached 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 July 7, 2018. For the good order, please also inform the Polling Officer Thomasz Kliesiewicz via email at email@example.com that you have granted a proxy for the Hurghada 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 Hurghada may also vote online. In order to do this, you need to register with the Polling Officer, Thomasz Kliesiewicz, by writing an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 June 17, 2018 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 alternative way to vote – if you wish, please contact email@example.com 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 2018, the ballot for voting both by electronic means and by correspondence will close at 23.59 pm, CEST (Brussels time, GMT + 1:00), on July 5, 2018. 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 Cartagena Meeting of July 9, 2017 here.
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 Egypt as we advance our efforts to unleash AIESEC’s global alumni potential and to progress the organizational development of AAI.
We look forward to your participation, electronically, by correspondence or proxy, or in person in Egypt!
