JCI New York City was featured in the Outstanding Chapter panel at the JCI USA Annual Meeting. It is formed of young driven leaders, who organize complex high profile events, and that cannot be stopped by any crisis. JCI New York City is the most international chapter in the world, as we have members who are originally from Moldova, Mauritius, Honduras, Romania, Germany, Burkina Faso, Macao, Argentina, Niger, India, Puerto Rico, Guyana, Morocco, Guinea, Philippines, Colombia, Nigeria, and of course from the US.

Here are just some of the 2020 accomplishment:

  • Q&As with World-Leading Experts - when the pandemic just hit us, there was misinformation and confusion, thus we organized virtual Q&As with leading experts on virology from Rockefeller, Columbia, and New York Universities, one of whom received the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Besides, we had Q&As with a UN representative and World TOYP winner.
  • Pandemic Pivots - a series of trainings on how to make money fast if you lost your job or need an additional source of income (by trading, social media, podcasting etc), which fits nicely the JCI RISE initiative.
  • JCI Official and Non-official Trainings - we organized over 20 official (with JCI USA) and non-official courses. Thus we reached over 1,000 participants throughout the globe (the US, Malaysia, India, Nepal, Norway, Belgium, Nigeria etc) and helped raise a new generation of JCI trainers.
  • Partnerships - we co-organized events and built strong partnerships with JCI San Francisco, JCI Santa Clarita, Liverpool Jaycees, JCI North Jersey, JCI New Jersey, JCI Philippine-NY,  JCI Rochester, and with JCI USA and JCI Global Advocacy Team, as well as with the JCI New York State (for instance, during the Spring Convention, we organized a lecture on building powerful visions in times of uncertainty with a professor from Cornell University) as well as with current and past JCI International, USA National, and State presidents and vice-presidents. And we maintain correspondence with multiple international chapters and organizations like JCI Moldova, Chisinau, Mauritius, City Plus, Dusseldorf, Brussels, Macao, Shizuoka Japan etc.
  • Betterkind - a 21-day transformational habit program to help people overcome their internal crisis and be ready to RISE ready for success. It features experts on Habit, Life missions and Willpower, and superhumans that sharpened their habits to perfection so they could accomplish some heroic deeds, like walk 17,000 km to end child begging in India, or race while being a mother of 6 children. 
  • Support social justice - when the Black Lives Movement started, JCI New York City released a video supporting it.
  • Social Events - Drumming, Hiking, Biking, Dinners, World Clean-up day.
  • Internal events - 37 BOD meetings, 8 All Members Meetings, 1 BOD elections, a community survey, and in-depth root-cause analysis that guided our strategy and actions.
  • Social media - We have deployed weekly newsletters and are present on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn.
  • And we are ready to organize some more amazing high-impact projects, that will help our economy and society RISE.
