This dynamic slogan embraces Junior Chamber?s global membership of over half-a-million members, Senior Members and JCI Senators in more than 100 countries and territories. ?Entrepreneur? has many positive meanings. Primarily denoting ?a person who organizes a business undertaking,? it can also be someone who takes bold actions for the community?a social entrepreneur. Innovative, cutting edge, creative, and youthful, an entrepreneur has fresh, original ideas and is ready to risk implementing them. "In Action" reflects Junior Chamber?s proactive attitude?always working toward change. Regardless of the area of enterprise?development, training, environment, children, peace, internationalism?Junior Chamber members improve their communities, their countries and their world. Junior Chamber creates opportunities. ?Entrepreneurs in Action? depicts Junior Chamber members? determination and courage to use those opportunities to break barriers and explore new fields. Pioneers in business and in life, they radically redefine what is doable and how it can be done. Junior Chamber's ranks include leaders who are investors, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and professionals in diverse fields. Their entrepreneurial action empowers them to forge change to make the world a better place. They are visionaries and mavericks that transform dreams into reality. With strength and determination, they continually strive to do more and be more in their businesses, their communities, and in the lives they help change. These cutting-edge young business people bring passion and creativity to problem solving and to the art of work. Their boldness, imagination, and readiness to break barriers when needed give them the ultimate edge over competition. JCI President Salvi Batlle saw members? participation in the Barcelona JCI Congress at this crucial crossroads for the world as a clear demonstration of ?Entrepreneurs in Action? toward world peace: Let?s Give Peace a Chance *********************** ?In 1944, when our U.S.-born movement reached the international level, Junior Chamber emerged with great strength from the second greatest world crisis bringing a sense of hope and commitment from young people around the world to create world peace. That is why our Creed states, ?The brotherhood of men transcends the sovereignty of nations.? ?Overcoming enormous difficulties, these young people were able to succeed and make a positive change: they created an international movement that fought for progress based on peace. This has been our mission, courage and vision since the establishment of JCI. ?Today, as young professionals who face a new world crisis, we must keep our commitment toward a peaceful future, a future to be lived with awareness of the present, but with a normalcy that silences the acts of criminals. This peace is better achieved through knowledge and togetherness, taking the opportunity to attend events that help us acquire this knowledge and share experiences, such as our World Congress. [By attending] we played our part for world peace with our example of normalcy and our ability to live together peacefully. ?The present situation in Barcelona is one of peace and absolute normalcy. Catalonia, and especially Barcelona, has always been known for its hospitality, tolerance, and respect for other cultures. The city was recently selected by ?Traveler? magazine as the best world tourist destination, combining a millenarian tradition with a captivating modernity that have turned it into an emblematic destination no one should miss. The Congress Organizing Committee worked very hard to turn this place and time into a wonderful opportunity to share great moments and knowledge in a normal atmosphere. Thousands of voices from around the world must clamor for a peaceful future. ?I called upon all Jaycees of the world to attend our Congress on November 4-9, so we could send a message of peace to the world?which is something more than 4000 of our members bravely did.? ********** 2002 Goals ********** His goals will be to support and promote the 2002 JCI Plan of Action: Growth and development ******************** To advance the organization's qualitative growth, improve the caliber of service to its members, and ensure member retention.
