Highlights of development and evolvement of SG in these 10 years

The membership of the SG has been evolving and developing throughout the years in terms of composition and size. From the initial stage of operation with four members, with three senior leaders from Junior Chamber International (Hong Kong) serving in SG in the early years; to the expansion of membership for SG in the later years including members from government and public organizations, MNCs in the private sector, senior executive in the higher education sector, as well as professionals in practice like HR and Training. The average number of members has broadened to be around 6 to 8 members per session since 2007 till now. Since five years ago, the immediate past President of AIESEC in Hong Kong was

invited to join the SG in the coming session to provide better linkage between SG and MC; this also aimed at enabling the outgoing President to consolidate his/her learning in a high-level group and in a more in-depth manner. On the work scope of the SG, a multi-pronged approach has been adopted with each SG member specializing in one or two strategic area(s) matching with the functional area of the Directors, so that the SG advice and feedback can be even more direct and engaging with the relevant working people in AIESEC. One most important highlight is that SG has been playing the unique role of being “critical friends” of the President, Directors, Local Committee Presidents and the AIESEC leaders. SG is

constructively critical and is a true friend of all the AIESEC leaders; meaning that the SG members facilitates the personal development and transformation of the AIESEC leaders in transition to their career development throughout the years of interaction. It has been SG’s most satisfying experience to witness and hear from former Presidents, Directors and AIESEC leaders what they have learned and grown from interaction with SG years after their graduation. They shared that they were only realized about the real learning of life lessons and learned that some high-level management skills were indeed learned from the interaction with SG when they served in their old AIESEC days.

The SG in the next 10 years

With the rapid development of socio-economic situation, education and technology in the local and global communities in the coming years, it is believed that the development of AIESEC as the largest youth organization in the world will also need to be adjusted and to be even more diverse in its services, programmes and exchange coverage. In this connection, the role and functions of SG will also need to be further enhanced and adjusted according to the real needs and development trend of the Directors in leading the organization. This means the SG membership will need to be evolved accordingly to meet its own challenges in providing the needed support to the Directors. A deep review to even better tap
