YJAG Sets New Dates for 4th Anniversary and Congress


The young journalists association of the Gambia informs its members that their forthcoming anniversary and congress has been rescheduled to the 22nd October 2011. In a news release obtained by Selluka, the journalists organisation also sets the deadline for the settlement of all outstanding dues as 12th October 2011.
The release further stated that the reschedule came following a decision made at an executive meeting held on the 7th September 2011. “The changes in the dates are meant to give members more time to settle their dues and participate fully in the congress. The constitution of the Young Journalists Association of the Gambia (YJAG) makes it clear that any member in default of even one Dalasi is not qualified to vote or be voted for in any congress. Members are therefore urged to settle their dues and regularlise their status,” it further noted.
Meanwhile, the organisation’s current executive’s mandate expires at the end of this term, when most of them (including the current president and PRO) are expected to step down. The PRO had earlier on stated that they (the current executive) are committed to democratic principles. He further said that all actions (and reactions) at YJAG are taken in democratic principles.
