Frequently Asked Questions

1. What does “AIESEC” stand for?

“AIESEC” was formerly a French acronym for “Association Internationale des Etudiants en Sciences Economiques et Commerciales” (translates to: International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences). Today, we no longer use this name as an abbreviation, as our membership has grown to encompass a much wider range of disciplines than only economics and commerce – we are simply AIESEC.

2. I am not a business/commerce student, can I still join?

Absolutely! Our local and international opportunities are available to students from any faculty.

3. What is the best way for me to find out more about AIESEC?

Attend one of our information sessions! If you are unable to attend one of our exciting info sessions, you can contact us via email at aieseckpucomm@gmail.com .

5. I keep hearing about conferences, what are they all about?

Conferences are a special opportunity for members to network with each other and with leaders in the corporate community, learn about relevant issues to increase their global awareness, and gain in-depth leadership and AIESEC-specific training. Conferences include: Western Regional Conference, Coastal Conference, National Congress, and National Leadership Development Conference.

6. When are AIESEC’s meetings?

Each portfolio holds weekly meetings for their members, which are arranged by the respective VP depending on member availability. We hold a General Meeting once a month so that members can meet with other members from other portfolios. These are also scheduled depending on member availability. 

7. How do I gain membership to the local committee?

To gain membership, come to an info session, fill out our application form, attend Newbie Day (Kwantlen Surrey, Social Justice Space, Feb. 2 10:30AM~4PM) and go through an interview process, and you will notified at the end of Newbie day of your position.
