Welcome to JCI UK
Since I first started attending JCI events in 2006 I have been constantly fascinated by the fact that one organisation can offer so many different areas of opportunity whilst still retaining a sense of fun along the way, and have equally been amazed at all of the benefits and opportunities that come from being a member.
I’ve seen the organisation grow, adapt to different challenges, and evolve to become one of a select few organisations recognised nationally by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as a leader in active community work when she awarded JCI UK with a Diamond Jubilee Award for Voluntary Services. JCI UK never stops giving and it is important to continue to do what we can to ensure that as many young people as possible have the chance to get the full JCI experience. It’s this experience of being a JCI member, individual & personal to all of us, that makes me so passionate about our organisation. It’s why I Feel Proud to be a member of JCI.
2015 witnesses the 100th Anniverary of the JCI movement - it will be a time to reflect on our organisation's amazing history and the journey we've taken so far, as well as celebrating our achievements along the way. It will also be a time to look towards where we’re heading in the future.
So, what can you do for JCI? What will JCI do for you? As an organisation, we have an ethos of learning by doing. The more you put in, the more you will get out.
I hope that you will see that there are many advantages of being a JCI UK member. I hope that you will be inspired to be active within your local communities and local chambers. Most importantly. I hope that you will Feel Proud of what you, as an active citizen, can and will achieve.
