In 1967, in line with the name change of The Boy Scouts Association, the name The Boy Scouts Association, Hong Kong Branch was changed to The Scout Association, Hong Kong Branch.[18] In 1969, also sections were renamed, e.g., Wolf Cub to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts to Scouts (age changed to 1116) and Senior Scouts to Venture Scouts (age changed to 1620).[18]
A mixed unit of boys and girls Venture Scouts was set up in 1975. Formally from July 1978, girl members were accepted in the Venture Scout section, making the Hong Kong branch a co-educational organisation, much earlier than the Scout Association of the United Kingdom.
Commonwealth Commissioner Sir Marc Noble visited Hong Kong on 17 March 1975. He suggested to The Scout Association of the United Kingdom that the Hong Kong branch could stand on its own and should become a full member of the WOSM. Hong Kong was accepted by the world organisation as its 111th full member on 1977-04-26 with its name formally changed to The Scout Association of Hong Kong.[19]
