The 23rd Annual General Meeting of the Association of Professional Bankers (APB) – Sri Lanka will be held on Friday 24 February 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute, 100, Independence Square, Colombo 7.

Established in 1988, the Association of Professional Bankers - Sri Lanka, fondly known as APB amongst the Banking fraternity, has been the most representative organisation of banking professionals in the Island and has functioned as a forum that brings together leading personalities in business administration and intellectual discussion in the contemporary banking scene.

 With a Vision ‘The Power of Professionalism in Banking in Sri Lanka,’ APB strives to sustain the highest standards of professionalism and integrity among Bankers and to advance public interest to influence the achievement of highest ethical standards and governance in the Banking Industry.

Each year, the Association conducts a convention on a relevant topic, which is attended by local and international financial services professionals.

The theme of the 2011 convention was ‘Banking Foresight; Shaping Integrated Development’.

The Association also conduct regular guest lectures on industry relevant topics to improve the awareness amongst members while a Journal with contributions from industry professionals is published periodically by the APB.  

The APB also organise an annual get-together of the members to foster fellowship.  The Association also has a scheme of honouring outstanding contributors to the Industry, which is considered as the pinnacle achievement of a Banking professional in Sri Lanka.

In keeping with the past trend, a well represented gathering of members is expected at this year’s Annual General Meeting.
