The SCM and General Secretaries Meeting is not decision-making body of the WSCF AP, neither it is a program or a regular body that is mandated to function separately from the decision making structures of the WSCF AP. The recommendations and suggestions arising from these meetings are highly valued but are not mandatory and binding. This space or venue was created in aide of decision making processes for the national movements and the region. It was created to ensure that decisions taken by the Regional Committee, Standing Committee and Regional Women’s Committee were adequately informed by the staff. It is in this same spirit that the next SCM General Secretaries and Coordinators meeting is being organized with the following objectives:
- Draw lessons and learn from the experiences, successes, strengths and areas of improvement of the work of the national movements in the last three years; Identify effective strategies and direction for WSCF AP’s movement building work.
- Identify the critical issues, concerns and themes relevant to the students and youth today, and recommend strategies and actions for program planning at the national, regional and global levels;
- Create venue for the general secretaries and coordinators to share their experience in general staff work, leadership, management, project and activities implementations and identify areas of cooperation and skills enhancement for father development.
