Note 1.- The General Assembly originally called for May 14 & 15th, required to be postponed due to last-minute technological problems with the zoom link and the registration platform. Even though by 8:30, there were more than 20 people present in the room, it was a prudent and more transparent decision to assure equal opportunity to all members who wished to attend. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused to the membership.
Note 2.- With respect to the topic related to the Invasion of Ukraine by Russia, some members have asked if this topic will be addressed during the Assembly. The Executive Board fully recognizes the complexity of the topic and considers that it is best to dedicate an exclusive global online meeting to discuss and comment on the matter. Such a meeting is planned to happen on Saturday, June 4th, 2022, at 15:00 hrs. (Swiss time) the zoom link to participate will be provided prior to the meeting.
We look forward to your participation,
Alberto Ziehl Beltrán
President, AIESEC Alumni International On behalf of the Executive Board.
