Our imagination is our preview of coming attractions. ?Albert Einstein Dear fellow members and friends of Junior Chamber International: ?What a Wonderful World!? is the title of the famous song you probably know. I am not sure these words are fully applicable to our planet right now: poverty, environmental issues, social unrest, economic crisis, health issues, climate-related changes, conflicts, and so on are unfortunately symbolizing this first year of the new millennium. We are all facing these challenges, whether we want it or not, whether we realize it yet or not. What does this mean? What does this mean to us, members of Junior Chamber International? There are essentially two main areas that concern us. First, we can see that the world needs capable, committed, dedicated, efficient leaders now more than ever. To cope with the present challenges, a great deal of courage and leadership is required. Our organization, as designed by our founder, is forging leaders that are and will be able to ensure that our world is in good hands. Junior Chamber International was founded as an organization that provides or enhances its members? leadership skills. And second, our organization needs to show how much we care about our world, how determined we are to improve the living conditions of every single individual in this planet?whoever he or she is, and wherever he or she lives. Junior Chamber International, through projects run by our local organizations, is indeed contributing to improve society and living conditions around the world. JCI is bringing positive change My dear members, I have met world leaders who are or have been members of this organization. I also have witnessed countless projects around the globe that show how much we care and how much we can accomplish. Even though the challenges are not diminishing, Junior Chamber International is bringing positive change, so that this world can become a better place, hopefully soon, so we can truly say ?What a Wonderful World!? Your 56th JCI President, Georges A. Bouverat
