FIELD's main purpose is to create an integrated training environment for JCI members and candidates with bringing professional leaders from different variety of specialties.
FIELD is a fixed training series which is held on first Thursday evening of each month at a contracted hotel - "Holiday Inn Kadikoy" since 05-Jan-2017. There is no end date of the project as there is a huge demand from JCI members, candidates and alumni as well as the professional network to have this experience once per month. Moreover, FIELD project enables all members, candidates and alumnies as well as new joiners to come together physically, network each other, share ideas, know JCI and its culture better and monitor the candidate development regularly. Just for this purpose, it is essential to have a different training subject per each month to keep the new development opportunities open for all of the participants such as having pyschologist (for a wellbeing program) as a trainer one month and having a professional engineer for a design thinking activity the other month.
In the on-going FIELD training series since Jan-2017, 38 professional leader touched to young professionals as JCI members, alumnies and candidates. Attendance rate recorded as 26 per FIELD event and 35 different designs have been completed for social media announcements and program onepagers. In total there are 1000 participant so far in 38 events as much as 79.000 social media interactions for pre-during-post sharings. Especially in 2019, there was a special professional leader and subject linkings to program the schedule in the beginning of the year to increase the effectiveness of the seminar series.
There are lots of advantages to be together physically, networking, sharing ideas to each other and having new candidates on board as well as getting different perspectives for variety of specialties per each month. It is very integrated and beneficial environment for everyone to be a part of. We would strongly recommend you to think about this type of seminar series for your chamber to support continuous development of your members.
