The award is indeed an acknowledgement for BGS Chapter UUM as it is the only BGS Chapter from Asia to be listed as the recipient of the Outstanding Chapter 2019 award from a total of 600 Chapter BGS from 190 countries around the world.

The recognition is also a testament to the BGS Chapter UUM's commitment to be listed as the Highest Honor Chapter 17-18 in the hopes of ensuring that various opportunities are constantly provided to foster self-improvement and leadership among members.

Every year, BGS identifies the most excellent Chapters to be the recipient of the Gold, Silver, Bronze Categories and Best Practice. These chapters must demonstrate commitment in fostering leadership and excellence of its members through the organisation of international leadership programmes, participation in the annual BGS Global Leadership Summit and engagement with leading corporate and business leaders in BGS programmes.

The award also qualifies BGS Chapter UUM to be in the running for the Gamma Sigma Beta Scholarship worth USD500 which is awarded to outstanding and qualified BGS students.
