The 46th General Assembly of the Liberia YMCA is officially expected to run from March 31-April 1, 2017. A release from the national headquarters of the Liberia YMCA says several delegates from local branches of the Liberia YMCA, local and international partners, organizations, ministries, and invited guests will gather at the National Headquarters of the Liberia YMCA in Monrovia.
This year’s assembly will be held under the theme: “Empowering Young People for the Africa We Want.” The keynote speaker is The Most Reverend, Dr. Jonathan B. B. Hart of the Episcopal Church, while the installing officer is Ambassador Charles Minor.
The assembly will begin with an official indoor program and presentation of a new strategic plan of the YMCA. The second day will be the formal business session, following which there will be elections and induction of new officers of the National Board of the YMCA.
The National General Assembly is held once every four years, and convenes to review and
amend policies, by-laws and the Constitution of the Liberia YMCA, as well as elect a new corp of officers for a four- year term.
In a similar development, the National Youth Council of the Liberia YMCA has begun its 8th National Youth Assembly in Gbarnga, Bong County from March 28-30, 2017. The National Youth Council is the decision-making structure of the YMCA that grooms young people for leadership and service to their communities. At the end of the assembly, a new leadership of the Youth Council will be elected.
Already, YMCA branches around the country have completed the holding of local Board and
Youth Assembly elections, which have seen the elections of a new Board for all YMCA branches across the country.
