It is time for the ECM – a non-offical JCI international event that was created by JCI London and Berlin in 1993. Still going strong with capitals all over Europe hosting the event every year this year’s ECM is held by JCI Belgrade from the 8th until the 11th May 2014. Of course some London members made their way to Serbia and Marco Van Den Heuvel JCI Senator and President of JCI London 2009 is reporting about the event while it is happening.
I have been to National Conventions, twinning weekends, European Conferencences and a World Congress, but my favourite is still the European Capitals Meeting (ECM); big enough to get the international experience, small enough to get to know everyone during the event. Perhaps I am biased having organised the ECM in 2008.
So here I am in Belgrade with ECM veteran and friend Shafiq Mumani. We arrived 1day before it started and after dropping the luggage off at our host’s house, we went straight to a night club to meet some of the other delegates from Amsterdam and Belgrade. These guys here know how to party hard: loud and late. Bedtime was at 4:30 am and my ears are still buzzing. Should I be worried about the nights to come, as we haven’t even started yet?
Greetings from Belgrade
