Normally during the month of November, JCI UK would hold its annual National Convention. Unfortunately, due to ongoing restrictions related to COVID-19, this will not be possible. However, JCI UK are delighted to be able to replace its normal National Convention with its first ever Virtual Conference which will take place on Friday 27 November 2020 and Saturday 28 November 2020 for both JCI members and non-members. The theme of our Virtual Conference is “What’s The Future?” and will tie in with the following themes:
- Sustaining and rebuilding businesses and economies;
- Engaging and empowering the workforce; and
- Acknowledging, understanding and finding solutions to the mental health impact COVID-19 has had.
The theme of our conference was devised to fit in with the JCI RISE initiative. JCI RISE stands for Rebuild, Invest, Sustain, Evolve and was launched as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. It calls upon enterprising young leaders across the world to work together to make economies and workforces more resilient.
On Friday 27 November 2020, we will welcome a mixture of keynote speakers who will deliver interactive sessions focusing on our “What’s The Future?” theme. Please see below a full programme of events taking place.
Then, on Saturday 28 November 2020, we will be running a free virtual version of the JCI UK National Convention which will see amongst other things our debating competition, an interactive session for what the future could hold for JCI members in 2021 and our national awards ceremony. Please see below the full programme of events.
