They say time flies when you’re having fun and that is certainly true for March in Yorkshire!
So, what have we been up to that’s been so much fun?
Well, JCI Doncaster have been planning events for the next few months and we are all getting very excited about their beer tasting session. JCI Bradford have very busy collecting 2,293 Easter Eggs. JCI Leeds have been little book warms with their first book club. JCI Harrogate have had one of their training sessions. JCI Rotherham have been on a special business tour of Magna Science Park and got to know their members better with a Meet The Members session and making first contact with their soon-to-be new twins. JCI Barnsley have been planting trees, watching basketball in one of their fantastic socials, as well as learning how to Tweet and use LinkedIn properly. JCI Sheffield have held a great Network Wednesday event at a new venue, CV training, visited their twins in Mayo, learnt how to dance and collected 711 Easter Eggs.
As well as all that JCI Rotherham & JCI Sheffield joined forces to attend the Safe@Last quiz at Magna and we have had out first Regional event, Big Supper, hosted by JCI Bradford and attended by every chamber in the Region.
Personally, I have been with National Board to Belgium for a best practice sharing session with the National Boards from JCI Belgium, JCI The Netherlands and JCI Switzerland.
Oh and I can’t forget the chamber pot moving twice in the space of a month! Tired yet?? I know I am!
My ‘Feel Proud’ Yorkshire chamber of the month for March is JCI Sheffield. I’m pretty sure you can tell how busy they have been from the list above but as well as all that they are still producing a fantastic magazine each month and have been out handing out leaflets to local businesses promoting JCI and their events to members of the community. It is definitely All Go in Sheffield right now! Well Done!
My ‘Feel Proud’ member of the month for March is actually a President. Phil Cockayne from JCI Bradford. He has organised the Big Supper and had helped out with some Regional admin!
Now I know after all that you probably want to rest but not a chance – sorry April is looking just as full! Check out what’s coming up below:
8th – JCI Rotherham goes to Bingo
9th – JCI Leeds Bar of the Month
11th to 12th – Presidents & Deputies Weekend in Southampton
15th – JCI Sheffield Improvisation Training
17th to 19th – JCI Scotland National Conference
22nd – JCI Rotherham Extempore Training

24th – JCI Rotherham Past Presidents Dinner
25th – JCI Barnsley Past Presidents Dinner & World Malaria Day.

See, busy!! One other thing I need to mention is after the feedback from the Regional Events Survey last month, the Regional Public Speaking Competition has been moved out of the conference to allow more time for some fun and show debates. This will now be held in Barnsley in September so watch out for more details on that.
I think that is about it for now Yorkshire, have a great month and ‘Feel Proud’.
