Generation 2000 (G2K), the young professional affiliate of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) today concluded the proceeding of its Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The AGM saw the election of two new vice-presidents to the organisation. Ronique Rhoden, former chairperson of the Gender Affairs Committee of the organisation and Daryl White former deputy general secretary in charge of the northern belt of the island.
White said, “I consider it a privilege to be elected to serve my organisation in this capacity. G2K remains a vehicle for political change, and to effect real change one must place oneself in a position to do so.”
The only female vice-president of the organisation, Rhoden had this to say “Like the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), G2K has a long tradition of providing women with an equal opportunity to serve at the highest levels within the organisation. Having served as the head of the Gender Affairs Committee, it is a privilege to be able to continue to serve G2K in the capacity of vice-president.
"I will use my position to encourage more young women to actively participate in politics as women continue to be the backbone of this great nation and have earned their place at the helm of any organisation.”
White currently works in the financial sector while Rhoden is pursuing her MA in Heritage Studies at the University of the West Indies.
Simon Sangster and Matthew Samuda remain as vice-presidents for the organisation and attorney–at–law Floyd Green continues on a president of Generation 2000.
