Committee members of Student Leadership Convention 2013

Student Leadership Convention or better known as SLC has been organized by the Indian Undergraduates of University of Malaya for the past seven years beginning in the year 2006. Apart from its objective to bring out their talents and polish their leadership skills, SLC creates a platform for student leaders from all over Malaysia to share their perspective and ideas on ways to uplift the Indian community towards a brighter future. SLC also acts as a channel for student leaders to network and form a good rapport among them. Our vision for SLC is to be an effective platform to generate intellectuality, openness and harmony among undergraduates through international integration. Besides that, the mission that we‟re working hard to accomplish is leadership that gives priority to undergraduates while promoting the university‟s aspiration for a global recognition.

SLC is all about transformation. SLC itself as a convention has transformed over the years to create worthy experiences for our student leaders. SLC‟06 started under the leadership of Mr. Delakan Ratha Krisnak as the director. The theme for SLC ‟06 was “Mahasiswa Pemangkin Kemajuan Masyarakat India” which means undergraduates are the catalyst for the development of the Indian community. The highlight in SLC ‟06 was the submission of a memorandum pertaining to problems faced by our Indian Undergraduates to the then Works Minister, Dato‟ Seri Utama S. Samy Vellu.

In SLC ‟07 with the leadership of Mr. Parthiban Kandasamy, a new vibe was created in SLC. With the theme “Pioneering Excellence”, we gave the delegates an experience that has never before been accomplished in the history of a project organized by undergraduates. The delegates experienced the technology of teleconferencing, an effort put together by SLC‟s crew. This created a big impact and further reinforced the theme of Pioneering Excellence. Furthermore SLC ‟07 was also the year for the branding of SLC by the design of a logo.

Progressing to SLC ‟08 with the theme “Be Inspired to be a Transformational Leader” under the direction of Mr. Vinoth Kumarasamy we improved our organizational approach. We created a corporate and professional working environment with the implementation of Standard Operating Procedures (S.O.P) and Key Performance Index (K.P.I). The essence of the convention was formed based on 4 main subjects of concern namely career, entrepreneurship, leadership and community service. The rationale behind this is these essential values are needed to form a complete individual. We also came up with a plan called “THE RM10 PLAN”. This plan calls for Indian Undergraduates to contribute RM10 every month to aid Tamil Schools which are lacking in basic amenities. And the greatest achievement of SLC ‟08 was having Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, former President of India in University of Malaya. Held in Dewan Tunku Canselor, this public lecture created a positive impact among the 3000 people who attended and was privilege to listen to the icon himself.

“Revolution towards Dynamism” is not only the theme for SLC ‟09 but it shows that dynamism and vigor for success was the vital aim of SLC‟s first lady director Ms. Kamalashne Jayapalan. A union of delegates since SLC ‟06 until SLC‟08 was accomplished by organizing a grand dinner. This dinner was not only to celebrate the success of SLC but Student Leadership Convention 2013 also to create an avenue for past and present delegates to meet inspirational, dynamic and successful personalities of the country.

SLC 2010 under the reigns of Mr. Kumareshan Krishnan came up with a rather captivating theme, “Ignite the Leader Within.” This theme is an indication to all undergraduates to bring out the leadership quality within them in many aspects. Student Leadership Convention 2010 had not only a large number of delegates but also nearly 40 speakers from all over the nation. SLC 2010 triggered rigorous discussion among delegates that resulted in a resolution that we managed to present to the Prime Minister‟s department. Our resolution has gained nationwide recognition and approval and several issues raised in the resolution has already been solved with the help from the Prime Minister‟s Department for instance one week holiday was given to undergraduates for Deepavali.

With the theme „Spearheading Success Beyond The Boundaries‟, under the leadership of Mr Vithiaganant Vadiveloo SLC‟11 witnessed a gathering of 120 delegates from 22 public and private learning institutions. Similar to previous years, distinguished speakers graced the convention and left a lasting impact on the delegates. SLC‟11 built its major focus on entrepreneurship and investment besides other agendas such as leadership and social empowerment producing very positive results. Adding feathers to its cap, 2011‟s edition also inspired two major student movements namely, National Medical Student Convention (NMSC) 2012 which was held at AIMST University, Kedah and the Tamil School Transformation Programme. These two programmes involve undergraduates from various higher learning institutions who were inspired in SLC 2011 to pay back to the community.

Continuing the significant endeavor of SLC, The Director of Student Leadership Convention 2012, Ms. Shalini Palraj with her team, had gathered more than 120 delegates from 25 higher learning institutions all over Malaysia. They brought in more than 30 high profiled speakers which created a significant impact on delegates. The convention focused in imparting a sense of social responsibility in undergraduates. SLC 2012 focused on empowering undergraduates towards social responsibility. To reach the goal of the convention, Four Plans to uplift the community was proposed before a panel of judges, Dato Dr Shanmuganathan and Mr Lal Mugunthan. Apart from that, SLC 2012 also acknowledged the service of all the Tamil mainstream media such as Astro, Nanban, Makkal Osai, Thinakural, and Tamil Nesan towards our Indian community by hosting a forum and relating it to the reality of the community.

In the previous years, SLC has been honoured with the presence of many great leaders like Tan Sri Gnanalingam, Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing, Tan Sri Ramon Navaratnam, Dato’ Praba Thiagarajah, Datin Paduka Mother Mangalam, Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan, Tan Sri AK Nathan, and Prof. Dr. Kader Ibrahim. This year, we aspire to invite similar prominent speakers.

Mr. Delakan Ratha Krisnak, founder of SLC said that the convention remains a neutral ground to discuss and debate, simultaneously provoking thoughtful and effective ideas to be implemented in various private, government and non-governmental institutions in the country for the betterment of society. We always hold strong to our core values of building a strong career, igniting and enhancing leadership skills, endeavoring entrepreneurship and undertaking social responsibilities seriously. These values, we believe, cannot be seen in isolation, but must be integrated to achieve an ideal state in any individual.

Lead by Mr. Logeswaran Balasubramaniam , SLC 2013 is thriving towards a journey of witnessing undergraduates with a different perspective concerning current Indian issues nationwide. Realizing their role of being the new generation leaders, new ideas and visions will be generated after sailing through SLC 2013. The theme for this year‟s convention “Catalysing the Paradigm Shift”, encompasses broadening the minds of undergraduates, so as to enable them to move forward to serve the community in better ways. Delegates will be exposed to the social issues faced by the public. Delegates will also experience a shift in thinking during the convention. A test in maturity will reveal the true potential of these delegates.
