The organizations will receive these amounts as credits on the National or Local dues payment.
What role do the National and Local Organizations play in the JCI Alumni Program?
Local and National Organizations will host events locally and nationally to reconnect JCI Alumni to the JCI Movement.
While a JCI member, I moved and was part of two different Local Organizations. Which should I designate as my Local Organization?
An individual’s Local and National Organization is whichever organization the individual was part of most recently.
My National Organization has its own alumni program that I am involved in. Am I automatically a member of JCI Alumni or are the programs different?
The JCI Alumni Program is run only at the international level, and its benefits are only applicable to those who join this international program. Any requirements and benefits of a national or local alumni program are separate from JCI Alumni. Those involved in local or national alumni programs are encouraged to join JCI Alumni, as well.
