Young Executives Group (YEG)
The Singapore Shipping Association has initiated a Young Executives Group (YEG) on 1 December 2005. Since then, many young executives from various SSA Member Companies have joined the YEG and the numbers are still increasing. Please click here to see the list of young executives and the companies they represent.
A small group of them have volunteered to form the Protem Core Group which will drive and steer the YEG forward. The YEG is expected to become more active as it develops in the months ahead.
The YEG was officially launched at a cocktail get-together on 16 February 2006 at the J Bar of the M Hotel. More than 100 young shipping executives were invited to attend the event.
The principal objective or terms of reference of the YEG is to serve more as a resource to connect young executives in shipping and maritime related industries to generate greater awareness and participation in the Association’s activities. Through these activities, the YEG aims to nurture future leaders for the maritime industry and the Association. It is also tasked, as and when required, to make appropriate recommendations and comments to the SSA Council as well as to other Committees, Sub-Committees and Working Groups.
This YEG works closely with two presiding SSA Councillors to initiate, develop and implement approved programs to further its activities.
The Councillors will reflect the YEG’s views and interests to the SSA Council for consideration and support.
