Following our brilliant trip to Ireland in March to visit members from our twin chamber there from JCI Mayo, we are very excited to be welcoming four members from JCI Mayo to Sheffield on the weekend of 26th-29th June.
The international side of JCI is all about making connections, meeting new people and sharing good practice. This is a great opportunity for JCI Sheffield members to do this without leaving the City!
Our JCI Mayo visitors will arrive late Friday afternoon and we are very excited that we have arranged a varied program of socials, training, activities, volunteering and even a chance to soak up a bit of Sheffield history!
