The DM in Warsaw was held in 23rd-25th October and was organised by ESN SGGW because it had won
the competition for the best meeting subject. Another thing worth mentioning is that it had a
gangster theme and that explains the secondary subtitle. Our section was represented by: Magda
Łukasińska (president and vice - delegate), Mateusz Tomala, Jakub Mazur and me (Dominika
Kowalczyk) as a delegate. Adrianna Skolimowska was present as well as the presidium chairperson.
The issues we discussed were quite typical: ESN Poland members’ reports pertaining existing
achievements and enterprises. Each of them spoke about their branch issues. Network team
reported about their activities. The PZU - our business partner - representative also appeared at the
meeting.. He described the way of cooperation for both institutions. He discussed the mentoring
programme, which a few ESN members participate in. It was chosen a group of 30 people – 15
experienced (promoted to mentors) and 15 beginners with a chance to develop their skills. Our
section members: Jakub Mazur, Mateusz Tomala and me were incorporated to the team too.
Adrianna Skolimowska also took part as a mentor. After presentation of PZU representative Revision
Team reported about its work. The issue of fast approaching CEP Rijeka and AGM Warsaw was
introduced. Then began small session bloc. Participants were to choose between projects: - Can ESN
get you a Job? – How to arrange a science project in your section. –Persuasion and influence skills
training and the Delegates Panel which I took part in. During the second small session bloc we were
given the opportunity to participate in following workshops for: presidents, HRs, PRs, financiers, or
simply meet Polish nationwide activists. The last bloc was the integration between sections that had
been matched earlier.
During the Delegates Panel we were talking about ESN House; if the headquarters should be moved
completely to Warsaw in order to improve its efficiency. Factors of such a move were mentioned too.
The next issue was closing the gathering. The advantages and disadvantages were pointed out.
However, it was AON university section that was the most important issue during the DP. The
problem that had arisen was the lack of engagement between the members of this section. They
decided to cease their activity which resulted in tabling a motion to remove ESN AON. We discussed
our partner Mobile Vikings last.
Sundays deliberation began with the vote regarding the removal of ESN AON. The motion was
adopted by all of the delegatesand on the 25th October 2015 the gathering cut the section loose.
Next the committee of FR, PR, HR, International, IT and Law Group reported about their activity.
Then the presentations for: SocialErasmus, Exchange Ability, ESN Cards, Mov’in Europe,
ESNOlympics, Discover Europe were held. In the end Mobile Vikings issue was solved and new
Deliberation finished with praise for OC, Presidium and Executive Board. Lastly, a picture of the
members was taken.
