Following a First Year's Membership

So I've been part of JCI Barnsley for a whole year and I can definitely say I've had some of the worse hangovers I've ever had, and I went to University! On a serious note, my first year has been action packed all the way. I have made some great friends and got lots of fun and interesting memories. This year my aim is to push myself to meet more people from around the country and even the world and get more involved in my chambers events and attend more events hosted by other chambers too.

I have started off the year pretty well, by winning the Bernard Walkden Award for Most Outstanding Contribution to the Community, an award I am very honoured and grateful to be given. I also got to meet some of the members from our twin chamber Aberdeen at our Annual Dinner in January. I visited Aberdeen earlier this month for their Grampian Dinner and I'm also hoping to save my pennies and get to World Congress in Leipzig, Germany, in November. Thanks to some great selling at my first national event (Inspiration Day) I'm also thinking about going to JCI Leap Academy later on in the year! Although I did get involved last year, I'm hoping that this year I'm going to play my part even more.
