Dear Summer Conference Delegates,

While I am a bit of an old-hat at this conference thing (this will be about my 30th conference,
not counting various seminars, camps and other such activities, and about the 10th I’ve
facilitated/chaired/whatever), I still get excited about a conference, especially when it’s a bit

And this conference will be different.

To start with, it’s a BEAST. With 6 nights, 5 days and a packed agenda, it’s going to be one
mama-jama of a conference.

Second, we have two awesome events happening through this conference – firstly an alumni
event, where alumni coming to meet and greet with us. Secondly, our awesome leadership day,
where we will have a series of fantastic speakers and sessions, focused on making you a better

Third, we have an amazing conference team, with 20 people facilitating and OCing the
conference, from 10 different countries! That’s right – don’t say we never provide for you!

Add to that the parties, the best functional training EVER, an amazing hotel and a host of
amazing people, and you have what is shaping up to be one of the greatest conferences EVER.

I’m excited, and you should be too, because it’s
going to kick @.

Your VPTM, and Conference Manager,

Peter McDermott.

                                   Here Today, Leading Tomorrow
It is with great pleasure that I present to you the first delegate mailer for the BEST AIESEC
conference ever! I hope you’re as excited as I am!

By now you’ve probably started thinking a lot about Summer Conference. Got your ticket up to
Madison? Have you started packing yet…or thought about what clothes to bring for the
themed parties?

Now that you’ve just been forced to think about getting ready for conference, the one that you
must do before you come is sleep. Sleep for hours and days before the conference, you’ll thank
me for it later I promise. With delegates from all over the world, alumni day, great sessions,
crazy themed parties (pirates v. ninjas anyone?), and as usual, tons of AIESEC dances to keep
you awake, you won’t be sleeping much (or at all) in Madison!

And speaking of Madison, be sure to congratulate AIESEC Madison for sending the most
delegates to Summer Conference! And if you want to hang out in Madison with AIESECers after
the conference, be sure to check out the study tour.

I hope you enjoy the delegate mailer. If you have any crazy epiphanies in the next few days
about things you want to see at Summer Conference, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Can’t wait to see you all in Madison! (Only a week and a half to go!!)

With love from your OCP,
