What are you hoping to achieve this year?
There is just so much I could say here. I would say to build on the community teams main theme : Building foundations for active citizenship at grassroots level, enabling our members to make an impact at local and international level. A key achievement would be create more volunteering opportunities and assist our members developing projects that make an impact in their local communities. Finally for the London chamber to raise the most money for the Nothing But Nets through the Mile of Pennies campaign- basically collecting pennies from members at every event. So remember JCI members bring your pennies to every event (larger donations are most welcome). Every penny counts!!!!

What do you enjoy most about being a JCI member?
Opportunity to meet like-minded people, JCI really allows to put the personal back into personal development as sometimes can be restricted in the workplace and the space you are given to develop these skills
