welcome to the YMF

The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, the country's premier business chamber has formed "Young Members Forum" (YMF), in a bid to identify, engage and develop the next generation of Sri Lankan leaders by providing an inspirational growth opportunity for them through various strategically driven programs.


This latest initiative by the Chamber, which is in its 175th year in progress, is ventured upon as it was felt that there was a dearth in the "Next Generation" leaders in the country.



Currently the YMF has a significant membership of the young corporate executives and emerging entrepreneurs in the country.



The aim of this initiative is to reach a wider spectrum of individuals by providing individual membership to The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce (CCC) through CCC-YMF to build strong relationships that can be linked to the Chamber over the years. The CCC intends to make the most of its current corporate membership to plan and integrate continuous programs to develop the YMF members.



Once enrolled as a member, the Chamber will facilitate a common platform for the youth to interact, learn, share knowledge and to develop and grow together in their respective domains which will be accepted by all stakeholders.



The YMFs primary target is the 26% of the Sri Lankan population, which falls into the age groups between 18 - 40 years (Source: CBSL 2013 annual report).
