OB-PS Annual Events OB-PS members and their guests are invited to meet every year in a different country. Members hear from the OB-PS President and WAGGGS representatives to learn how their support has made a difference to the lives of girls and young women everywhere. In 2013 OB-PS members and guests came together for an amazing event in the beautiful city of Lucerne, in very heart of the Switzerland. Next year they will head to Hong Kong as our event will take place during the World Conference.
