What will JCI Look Like in 2025?
JCI UK is in the process of creating its strategy for the next five years. To do this, we need the input of you, our members! We are a member lead organisation and that means making sure we’re heading in the direction you want us too.
Where should we focus on growing?
What are the core activities we do?
How do we stay relevant in the modern world?
This strategy day is a way for us as an organisation to really look at where we want to be. We want members from all over the UK to be there so we have as many viewpoints as possible, as well as members who have just joined and ones who have been members for years.
This is not an overnight process though, and a lot of thought and effort goes into a good strategic plan. The results from the day will feed into the plan and guide us where we should be going. A lot of work is already happening regarding this, including work from the Chamber Task Force, our Membership Committee and the work of National Board.
We’ll be giving regular updates following the strategy day and make sure that as the plan develops, we’re still going in the right direction.
We are still finalising the venue for the event, but it will be in Birmingham.
This is your plan, so have your say.
