APB Bank Coordinators’ Induction ceremony will be held on Monday 15 July at the Pitch Restaurant – Mercantile Cricket Association, Colombo 7 commencing 6 p.m. This is an important annual event in the APB calendar.

At this induction ceremony, the President, Secretary General and the Chairmen of the four main APB Sub committees namely, the Publications, Continuous Professional Development, Membership and Special Events will brief the APB Bank Coordinators regarding the activities planned by the Council for the year 2019/20 and also seek suggestions and views from the Coordinators on the way forward. 

APB affairs are managed by an Executive Council comprising of seven Office Bearers/10 Council Members who are elected at the AGM representing the Member Banks and the Immediate Past President on ‘Ex Officio’ basis. Since the Council membership is limited, APB has taken steps to appoint bank coordinators from each bank to assist the Council to organise activities for the betterment of the banking community. Accordingly, the bank coordinators play a major role in acting as a bridge between the APB Council and the membership. Whilst keeping the membership updated on the various APB activities, the bank coordinators also obtain membership views on activities that should be carried out by the APB for the benefit of the professional bankers.

In addition to acting as the APB representative for their respective banks, the bank coordinators also get involved in four main APB sub committees in handling the affairs of the association.
