The Council Meeting, more specifically the General Assembly, forms the democratic institution of our umbrella association European Students of Industrial Engineering and Management. Last week, delegates from all Local Groups were invited to join the conference which was held in Bogazici University in Istanbul – one of the most prestigious universities in Turkey. This time, it was Maximilian Scheid’s (VP of Public Relations & Human Ressources) and Jan-Simon Boschen’s turn to travel to the CM to contribute new ideas and to share opinions on the future of ESTIEM’s projects, commitees and initiatives. Workshops and trainings provided high quality education as well as discussions let our association profit from new input and vice versa.
Nonetheless some very important elections had to be made during the Council Meeting. Local Group Siegen hereby sends out congratulations to Local Group Darmstadt, who will host the final of TIMES. On the occasion of the 25th birthday of ESTIEM, Darmstadt is an iconic place as the idea of an european association of IEM students was born there in 1990.
Furthermore, we are happy to announce that the Spring Council Meeting 2015 will be hosted by Local Group Riga and the baltic Local Groups.
The << Work hard, play hard >> approach in the network empowered us students to elaborate and foster friendships that overcome both borderlines and political systems and shape the european idea.
Thank you Board 2014 for putting a lot of effort in preparing the agenda, and complements to Local Group Bogazici for providing the perfect framework for this Council Meeting. Both of you inspired over 250 students and alumni to get or to stay active in ESTIEM and motivated us to share the special ESTIEM spirit with our Local Groups!
