President message August

Dear members,

There have been many exciting developments for JCI UK this year and we’re delighted to provide an update on the highlights. Lesley Young

As National President I’ve found this year so far challenging but even more rewarding. Some of you may know I was unexpectedly ill for a few months following post surgical complications just as I was entering my presidential year. 

Not the ideal start and it was hard work to get caught up properly. During this time I realised what a fantastic organisation JCI is and how engaged, committed and enthusiastic you as members are. Thank you all who supported me during this hard time. 

Local presidents around the UK have been involved articulating what members need and how you feel the national organisation can work together. The members of national board have been very motivated and inspired by the feedback.

We’re striving at a national level to respond to the needs of members, one biggest needs is a new website solution. Please read more about the website project on page 5. Many members put in in a lot of time and effort into the project and we want JCI UK to go from strength to strength.

There are many fantastic opportunities for all members such as: national and international events, bursaries and to be involved in the development of our 3 year “Impact Plan” for the growth of JCI UK. Please grab them and make the most of your membership! You can influence more then you think.


I’ve also been nominated as candidate for JCI International Vice President in 2011. You can read more about what that means on page 6. If you have any queries please contact me, your local president or any other member of national board.

I hope to see you at our National Convention on 26th - 28th November in London. It promises to be a fantastic event!

With warmest regards,

Lesley Young
