ICC Georgia establishes ICC Georgia Youth
Friday, October 25
"This is the most important initiative developed by ICC Georgia yet. It will contribute to raising a new generation of young Georgians who will be aware from the very start of the importance of modern business practices and proper business ethics and who will become the real leaders of tomorrow," Chairman of ICC-Georgia, Fady Asly said.
ICC Georgia Youth members will attend seminars and events throughout the year aimed at familiarizing them with the business environment in Georgia and exposing them to best business practices and the activities of the International Chamber of Commerce globally.
Members of ICC Georgia Youth will also participate in ICC certified training in topics such as leadership, corporate governance, project management, entrepreneurship and ICC rules and publications. Students will be provided with mentorship and internship opportunities for students with ICC Georgia member companies. ICC Georgia is working closely with three university partners on this initiative: Free University, International Black Sea University, and Tbilisi State University.
Students from these and other universities have applied to become members of ICC Georgia Youth. Student members must be between the ages of 20 – 26 years old and be studying or have graduated from a business-related university program (for example, business administration, finance, accounting, economics or law). Upon graduating, young professionals are encouraged to join ICC Georgia Youth to further develop their business skills and to network among ICC Georgia member companies.
Students of universities who are ICC Georgia members (TSU, IBSU, Free University and Agrarian University) pay a membership fee of 150 GEL per year, while students of universities who are not ICC Georgia members and youths who have already graduated will pay a membership fee of 250 GEL per year.
