interconnect system in ESTIEM organization

The members of ESTIEM - in a legal sense - are the local groups (LGs) spread all over Europe. They are independently-functioning local student associations active in organizing and arranging Europe-wide and local activities. All these groups are related to the studies of IEM only, forming a strong network of EIM students all over the continent. ESTIEM is coordinated by the Board of ESTIEM whose members are elected during the General Assembly of autumn Council Meeting. The board is composed of the president of ESTIEM and five vice presidents (Administration, Public Relations, Activities, Finance and Education). The work of the board is supported by eight committees and ten project leaders.[3]
