The Association of Professional Bankers – Sri Lanka (APB) is the most representative organisation of banking professionals in the Island, and it functions as a forum that brings bankers together. This year too the APB, in line with its primary objective, has planned to implement a series of events.

The APB is taking its activities to the north for the second time within two years.  This gives an opportunity for the bankers in the north to get together. The activities are scheduled to be held on Friday, 18 September.

The Association plans to hold an inter-bank quiz competition in the north, and many banks have already shown a keen interest to participate. This would give the banking community in the north an opportunity to share knowledge and enhance their awareness levels in the subject matter. 

The quiz would be held in four rounds, covering areas such as General Banking, Laws and Regulations related to banking, Current and International affairs, General Knowledge, Sports and Entertainment. The winners would be awarded with challenge trophies, certificates and medals.

The APB has also arranged a public lecture on the same day at the HNB state-of-the-art auditorium in Jaffna.  The Association would be inviting a veteran speaker, and the speech to be followed by a Q&A session.

Subsequently, the APB has organised a donation of valuable books to the Jaffna Library for the benefit of the readers. The activities would come to an end with the APB hosting a fellowship for the senior bankers and the quiz participants, followed by dinner. 

For details, please contact the APB Secretariat, 275/75, Prof. Stanley Wijesundera Mawatha, Colombo 7, Tel. 011 2055318 and E-mail apbsrilanka@gmail.com.
