An opportunity to gather in our posh frocks and dinner suits could mean only 1 thing…… a JCI annual dinner! This time it was JCI Sheffields turn to host current and past JCI members and senators at the Holiday Inn Royal Victoria.
JCI Sheffield has celebrated a 182% membership increase in 2011 and this is thanks to the enthusiasm and drive of President Kate Senter and her hard working council team. As the wine flowed and the cheese was passed around, Andy McMenemy, guest speaker put most of us to shame as he talked about his challenge to complete 66 ultra-marathons in 66 consecutive days, despite enduring an Achilles heel injury which started in Bradford, only the second ultra-marathon he was to complete.
As the night progressed Kate praised her members and council for their commitment during the year and rounded off her speech by launching the JCI Sheffield Ap, the first interactive Ap from any chamber across the world. “There’s an Ap for that” can now be heard all across the region, and now the world after JCI Sheffield were invited to attend World Congress last week in Brussels to discuss their technological breakthrough in the JCI world.
WELL DONE JCI SHEFFIELD!!
