  1. Membership fees

During the last weeks, the future of the association of AIESEC Alumni Austria balanced on a knife’s edge. Hence we halted the collection of this year’s membership fees. As the future of AAA is now secured, we will resume the collection of the fees in the coming weeks. Dear members, please look out for further communication in the coming weeks, if you haven’t paid yet.

  1. Database

As you already might be aware, our old database had been corrupted some years ago. Since then we were handling the operations of AAA via a fragmented system of IT applications. This is not sustainable as you might agree. During the last year we were screening different solutions and decided on CiviCRM as new database. CiviCRM is open source software and developed for non-profit organisations like us.

But as we, the EB, are not IT or CiviCRM specialists, we still have to meet the challenge. If you have experience in implementing a database like CiviCRM and to link it with our website, your help is very welcome. Please get in contact with me (finance@aiesecalumni.at).

With best regards,

Representatives from eight national Alumni associations in Europe and from AAE were sharing successes and challenges of their national activities. Additionally, AAE and AAG introduced the Alumni Theme Programme (ATP).
