Dear Youders and friends,
It is indeed my privilege and pleasure, as the Chairman of the Association, to present you our vision for the year. Famed as a politically neutral body formed by scholars, it is our common belief that we have noblesse oblique to promote scholarly discussions as well as to help out the underprivileged. The Association has been a very successful platform supported by its three equally important pillars, the 3 ‘S’ principles, namely Scholarship, Social Awareness and Solidarity.
The betterment of any society counts on the concerted efforts of every member, not efforts of one person at any moment.Despite the fact that many Youders have already become contributing members of our community and some, prominent leaders in their sectors, it is no doubt that the best way to make a positive impact on the society is still through agglomerating the power of all Youders, both old and new. Therefore, building up a strong solidarity among Youders shall always be the very key mission of the Association.
Due to the hard work done by our predecessors few years ago, the Association has made various constitutional changes extending the membership eligibility to cover all Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fund (SEYMF) beneficiaries, enabling us to take in talents who received the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Prizes as our associate members. With the 25th anniversary of the SEYMF, the number of Youders eligible to join the Association have reached a critical mass of 20,000. We are deeply aware of the need for effective communication among all Youders.
The Association will reach its silver jubilee in year 2017. Apart from holding different anniversary events on top of our regular activities, which aim at providing our budding young fellows wider social exposure and enhancing their leadership skills as usual, we are going to establish more special interest groups for our members with versatile backgrounds and bring more information technology advancements to the Association, facilitating more effective communications within the Youder community.
On behalf of the Association and my fellow Executive Board members, may I take this chance to wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous year of the Goat ahead.
