Dear SYA Supporter,

Welcome to the 6th issue of the SYAConnect E-Newsletter!

Over the past year, SYA has been hard at work in putting together the 5 year Strategic Plan.
In May of 2011, the Strategic Plan was presented to the management team and then to the rest of the SYA community through an inspiring and informative presentation put together by four of SYA's senior youth.
The Draft Plan was then presented at the 2011 National Leadership Program.
Alot of feedback was received from all of these stakeholders and will be considered for the official launch later this year.

Also in this issue we have the Camp Reports and Official Photos from the inspiring National Leadership Program, as well as all the info you need regarding SYA's special relationship with National Australia Bank, and what this means for you!

In the months to come, SYA will be hosting a number of exciting events including the first SYA Simran Satsung for 2011, Professor Jaswant Singh's interactive and informative Workshops on Sikhism, and the very first Leadership Program held in Melbourne!

Last but certainly not least, be sure to clear your diaries and lock in the dates for the much anticipated and fun filled, SYA Summer Camp 2012!
