2014 President’s Message

It is with great honor that I greet you as the 91st president of JCI Winnipeg!

As the oldest JCI Chapter outside of the United States, JCI Winnipeg has a long history of developing leaders and promoting positive change. Some of our signature events include the Santa Claus Parade, Spring into Business and, of course, the Effective Speaking Competition. This year, JCI Canada’s representative in the Conference of the Americas Speaking Competition in April, 2014, is one of our own, Natasha Fisher.

At JCI, we strive to empower young people to create positive change and we are continuously looking at ways to get active and get involved when it comes to improving ourselves, our youth, and our community.

We offer:
  • Leadership development and the opportunity to learn by doing (by getting involved with project plans, event planning, fundraising, etc.)
  • Opportunity for civic engagement through partnerships within our community
  • Personal development opportunities (including public speaking, budgeting, working with a team)
  • Understanding of board operations
  •  A network of like-minded individuals to work with across Canada
  • Fun with purpose!
JCI members are young professionals, students, tradespeople, artists, etc.; above all, we are active citizens willing to foster positive change.

I invite you to get involved, to be a part of something ‘bigger’ and help create positive change in our community. 

To quote Margaret Mead: Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

Warm Regards,

JCI Winnipeg
