In August, Chicago alumni gathered with Northwestern students and our newest Trainee, Kevin Yang. The event moved from Millennium Park into a restaurant nearby when a rainy day made it difficult to enjoy jazz on the pavilion lawn. The group of 15 enjoyed food and drinks while welcoming our newest trainee, catching up with fellow alumni, and learning about the Summer National Conference's (SNC) highlights, including Northwestern's awards.

Welcome Kevin! Kevin arrived in early August for a 3 month traineeship, working with Accuity,Inc. His traineeship is in the field of Compliance Solutions and Japanese/Chinese Language Consulting. Kevin consults Acuity, Inc. on the use of Japanese in business and government documents and databases. He performs quality control on Japanese language output, helps create a dictionary of standardized names, builds a name-matching system, and assists with managing the data bases and a core system development for the company. Kevin is enjoying his traineeship and loving his time in the U.S.!

Congrats Northwestern! AIESEC Northwestern was the proud recipient of multiple awards at SNC. Karan Goenka, Local Committee President, and Yang Xu, Vice President of Incoming Exchange, received top sales people awards. Bravo Bravisimo!!! Northwestern also won the award for the best Board of Advisers. Huge congrats and thank you to all the alumni who are part of Northwesterns BoA and to those alumni who have coached the local AIESECers and shared leads. AIESEC Northewestern is doing a phenomenal job and events like the AIESEC Connection Event in April where alumni come out in masses and help generate leads shows what a dedicated group of alumni and strong hub community we have in Chicago!
