JCI UK’s latest member of the month is Sophie Delaporte from JCI Southampton.
Sohie is the international director for JCI Southampton this year and some of her achievements include:
- The signing of a twinning agreement between JCI Southampton and JCI Kortrijk (Belgium) during the European Conference
- Coordination of a twinning weekend in Belgium
- Arranging meet ups with JCE Rouen (France) in Southampton during the summer
- Initiating a project with the goal of creating a multi-twinning agreement
On top of the activities within her immediate role, she also creates posters for all chamber activities, has been part of the training team for JCI UK academy LEAP and helped the chamber prepare its national convention 2017 bid. She really is a member throwing herself into every aspect of JCI.
Celestine Onomo, local president of JCI Southampton commented: “Within the organisation, Sophie has grown in confidence and skills by attending most JCI Southampton trainings and 3 out of 4 JCI UK Academies. She has recently been involved with LEAP 2016 as a trainer and received very good feeedback about her training skills. As a team member, I can always rely on her, as a Local President I can sit back and relax, not only knowing she’s got everything under control but she also delivers things to a great standard. Looking back at everything she has accomplished, I’m extremely proud to see how she’s grown as an individual in and outside our organisation“.
As a thanks for her outstanding contribution to JCI, Sophie gets £50 off the JCI UK National Convention, taking place in Manchester on 25-27 November.
