LYG Sri Lanka held its Annual General Meeting last week at the Sri Lankan Foundation Institute in Colombo. Prior to the AGM the officials of local chapters participated in a three day workshop on ‘How to Run a Successful Liberal Youth Organization’ with the objective of strengthening their capabilities to manage their respective organizations effectively and efficiently in the up coming year by taking the ground realities into consideration. Other than the structured training sessions that were mostly facilitated by the executive committee members of LYG, IDL and FNF the participants took time off to critically evaluate their contribution to the development of LYG as a national youth movement and to craft and draft strategies for the up coming year.

With the end in mind in terms of the Annual Strategic Plan the participants elected the new executive committee members in order to steer LYG Sri Lanka towards its vision. Mr. Manusha Nanayakkara who is an executive committee member of Liberal Youth South Asia (LYSA) and a council member of southern provincial council was unanimously elected as the National President for the next two years whilst Mr. Shan Yahampath who was the Vice President – International Relations of the previous Executive Committee was elected as the Secretary General .

The felicitation to the outgoing president Mr. Buddhika Patirana was also took place at the AGM.
