In the last two years JCI has definitely taken me outside of my comfort zone – way out of it in fact! The roles of JCI UK National Convention Director and JCI London President were a big challenge. And while I love a challenge, I am looking forward to my role this year as national admin and membership direction, which suits my organised and detail-orientated personality.
That does not mean the role won’t be challenging. Co-ordinating this year’s national board, with its high proportion of impulsive extroverts will be one. Helping out our very diverse chambers across the country, who will each have different needs and challenges of their own will be another. I can’t wait!
One of the things I enjoy most about JCI is the chance to work with a broad mix of people with different personalities and professions. I am excited to be on national board with members from chambers across the country, which I’m sure will be a very different experience to being on a local council.
I am looking forward to using my two years of experience as JCI London’s membership director to develop and bring new ideas to my role. I am already getting a buzz every time I get a notification that a new member has signed up on the website (and the year has started VERY well in this respect!).
f there is anything I can help with, let me know. I’d love to hear your ideas on membership – how can we improve the JCI experience for our members? What are we doing well? What is missing? Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
