New Years Message National President JCI Suriname 2020 Roger Wong

Dear JCI Suriname family,

As we commence not only a new year but also a new decennium, I would like to wish you and your family a happy new year and all the best for 2020. May you reach all your goals and be blessed with health and lots of love this year!

2020 promises to be a very exciting year with several very important events taking place in the World and in Suriname. The Summer Olympic Games for example will be held in Japan. But also, in Suriname we have a very important event: The Elections! In 2020 we will have the opportunity to decide which leaders shall lead us into a new decennial.

But most importantly in 2020 we of JCI Suriname will be BUILDING BRIDGES TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT! Our previous National Presidents have laid a solid basis for our organization to further expand her impact and provide positive change in Suriname. In 2020 we will use this basis to position JCI Suriname as THE organization which brings together the 3 sectors of society to provide sustainable impact through the development of projects which contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals. In line with this vision we have planned two big events: the Political Debate and the JCI Suriname Partnership Forum.

We will also have moments in which we come together and increase the brotherhood between each other especially during our National Convention in October. The possibility will exist for you as member to become a global citizen by participating in regional conferences such as the conference on the Americas in Panama in May and also the World Conference in Yokohama, Japan in November.

Truly 2020 will be an exciting year for us in JCI Suriname. One in which at the end we can look back and say: we contributed to the advancement of the Global Goals, we have increased the brotherhood in our organization, we have gained valuable leadership skills and grown as persons. My team and I are ready to support but especially serve you in reaching these results.

Let’s all come together as one big family in 2020 and start:


Roger Wong
National President 2020 JCI Suriname
