New YDL Committee elected
Mike Guy of the Bahamas High Commission was elected the 2011-2012 President of the Young Diplomats in London at the organisation’s annual AGM.
In accepting the traditional ‘Order of the Spoon’ (whose holder has the right to speak and chair meetings), Mr Guy said he was honoured to be elected and thanked his predecessor, Marwan Francis, for his excellent leadership of the YDL.
He added he was pleased the new committee had broadened to include members from Southeast Asia and Africa.
The meeting also marked the launch of the upgraded YDL website which has a password-protected members area where members can download photos and book tickets to YDL events online.
